“Big News — Budget just passed!” President Trump tweeted Thursday, after sharing this uncharacteristically sage nugget: “Do not underestimate the UNITY within the Republican Party.”Trump is provably wrong about much in the fact-based universe, disgorging on average five false statements daily since taking office, according to the painstaking tally by long-suffering fact checkers. But don’t fool yourself into thinking he’s lying about one very important thing.
While the president and his Twitter trigger finger whip America into a frenzy over whichever shiny object he chooses to capture our attention — who called more fallen troops’ families, if football players should stand for the national anthem, an unproven story about uranium and Hillary Clinton (who already lost), a charge the FBI paid for an unproven dossier about Russia and Donald Trump (who already won) — China’s leaders are giving thanks for Trump, the gift that hasn’t stopped giving...
It takes chutzpah for a man who for two decades phoned media outlets to praise himself, posing as nonexistent publicists named “John Barron” and “John Miller,” who spoke with Donald Trump’s distinctive Queens accent and unmistakeable hyperbolic prose styling, to accuse a “dishonest media” of having “sources that don’t exist.”“Frankly disgusting” is the president’s latest description of freedom of the press, that foundational principle of American democracy enshrined in our Bill of Rights.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
