There’s a telling exchange in “101 Dalmatians,” the late-1990s Disney TV series. It comes in the episode “Bad to the Bone/Southern Fried Cruella.” Mooch, the bully dog, is taunting roly-poly Rolly, when one of Rolly’s friends speaks up. Spot: You know what happens to bullies? Mooch: Yeah. They get all the good stuff. I’m not sure if Mooch-the-pooch inspired Anthony Scaramucci, the New York hedge-funder and feisty Trump defender whose nickname he shares. Maybe it was the other way around.
The Republicans’ seven-year promise to repeal and replace Obamacare never got the oxygen it needed in Mitch McConnell’s Senate. On Monday night, a third and a fourth Republican senator flatlined the so-called Better Care Reconciliation Act. Someone slapped a toe tag on it. It was gone. Plan B arrived Tuesday morning, already on life support. “Repeal and we’ll get back to you later,” this one probably should have been called.
It was a perfectly nice idea when Marie Wilson, Daren Ball and Gloria Steinem at the Ms. Foundation for Women dreamed it up in 1992. Take Our Daughters to Work Day, the concept was called. Sons were added in 2003. And every year, on the fourth Thursday in April, a few million moms and dads took their daughters and sons to the office, the store, the factory, the bowling alley or the construction site. The kids got an up-close glimpse of how their parents made a living.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
