Monday night was the first time back on air for many of the late night comedy shows since Thursday’s rambunctious GOP debate in Detroit, Michigan — the same one where the man currently favored to win the party nomination casually bragged about his penis in relation to his itty bitty hands. That comment in question from Donald Trump really seemed to upset Nightly Show host Larry Wilmore, who viewed it as a threat to his livelihood as a comedian as a whole.
The third season of Last Week Tonight with John Oliver kicked off Sunday night on HBO, and the comedian wasted no time in tackling the American voting process with an acerbic bite. Bashing the states whose elected officials have long tried to implement strict voter ID laws, Oliver identified that the issue of carrying voting-approved photo identification often separates on racial lines. He joked, “It just seems like one of those things white people are more likely to have. Like a sunburn.
Now that John Oliver is back airing new episodes on HBO Sunday nights, you can bet that some of the best comedic skewering anywhere on television is back in full force. Take for example the comedian’s segment on abortion laws last night; although on the surface it may not seem like the type of topic best meant for a late night comedy show, Oliver managed to highlight the absurdity of the status quo regarding policies of a woman’s right to choose.
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".
