You do understand, don’t you, that this “Pat Payaso” is not the first clown to run for the Boston City Council? In fact, in past years, the Council was famous for having more clowns than Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey. Until 1983, in fact, the Council was a nine-ring circus. Then they increased the number of clowns, I mean councilors, to 13 — nine district clowns and four at-large clowns. But like the circus itself, the Council has seen better days.
Harvard’s big mistake with Chelsea Manning was that the Beautiful People at Camelot High didn’t think of him – I mean, her – as a traitor. They regarded Chelsea as a, well, here’s the headline on the press release about Manning from the Institute of Politics:First question: Was she to be a Visiting Fellow, or a Visiting Felon? Second question: Has Hasty Pudding Theatricals stepped up to grab Chelsea off waivers from the Kennedy School?
If you’re a local Republican hack with a phony-baloney state job that you want to keep, you had damn well better be in Shrewsbury tomorrow afternoon. Actually, if you are a GOP payroll patriot, chances are you already live in Shrewsbury, just like Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito and the hack Energy and Environmental Affairs Secretary Matt Beaton, and a whole host of other beneficiaries of nationwide searches.
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".
