Welcome to the Donald Trump show! Tonight, the Trump campaign is kicking off a show that will air on the candidate's Facebook page every night at 6:30pm ET via Facebook Live from the campaign war room at Trump Tower.
Daniel Zamora says that Donald Trump's presidential campaign reminds him of the movie , and no, not because he thinks it's frightening. It's because in the first Saw, the film starts with the main character shackled to a pipe in a bathtub that's steadily draining.
This election cycle has seen so many terrifying moments-the violent Trump rally in Chicago, the recent firebombing of a Republican field office in North Carolina, the Russian-sponsored hack of the Democratic National Committee. But none of these is quite as scary as the fact that during the third and final debate Wednesday night, Donald Trump refused to say whether he would accept the results of November's election.
There are about 20 startups that call this tech incubator home. On any given afternoon, you can walk through these lime-green halls, past a life-sized Darth Vader cutout and a sign that reads, "Stop Tweeting Boring Shit" to see them at work.
If Donald Trump is to be believed, the so-called American dream-the one where you can start at the bottom of life's proverbial ladder and wind up at the top- is dead. But take a closer look at the data: the story's much more nuanced than that.
The Situation Room is not as gee-whiz as you think it is. Take it from someone who knows: President Obama. "I always imagined the Situation Room would be this super cool thing, it'd be like Tom Cruise in The Minority Report," Obama, the guest editor of WIRED's November issue, said during a lengthy interview with Joi Ito of MIT's Media Lab and Editor-in-Chief Scott Dadich.
Twitter is by no means an exact measure of actual political support. If it were, well, trolls would be ruling the world-that is, more than they already are. But it's hard to ignore the surprising enthusiasm gap between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump in the hashtag #OHVotesEarly, which started trending on Twitter this morning as early voting kicked off in Ohio.
Conventional wisdom holds that whoever wins the presidential debate has a leg up in the race. But in the digital age, winning the online conversation about the debate matters just as much. Why? YouTube has the numbers to prove it. Sunday night's debate attracted 63 million TV viewers, a 20 percent decline from the first.
The Great UnTrumping of 2016 is well underway. Throughout the weekend, a steady stream of Republican leaders, from Sen. John McCain to former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice, renounced Donald Trump for comments he made on tape to Access Hollywood host Billy Bush back in 2005, in which Trump said he could grab women "by the pussy" with no repercussions, because, when you're famous "you can do anything."
Governor Mike Pence hasn't always seen eye to eye with scientific consensus. He has argued that smoking doesn't kill, written that global warming is a myth, and advocated for public funding of conversion therapy programs for LGBT people. Now, Pence is in trouble with another subset of the scientific community-psychologists.
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
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".
