The president of the United States is a huge white supremacist, but luckily our media is there to keep him in check—by obsessively congratulating itself for quoting him accurately. To look at the coverage of Donald Trump’s “shithole countries” comments, you would think that the biggest issue facing America was whether or not various media outlets would use the word “shithole” in their reporting. Well don’t worry folks—they did! And the republic is still standing because of it.
Anna Wintour is rapidly tightening her hold over the entirety of the Condé Nast magazine empire, the New York Times' David Carr wrote on Monday. Wintour, who has led Vogue magazine since 1988, was named artistic director of Condé Nast in March, giving her a broad mandate to reshape nearly all of the magazines in the company's stable as she saw fit. At the time, Wintour was viewed as restless and looking for a change, and Condé was eager to keep her.
The following contains spoilers. On Sunday, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri cleaned up at the Golden Globes, winning awards for Best Drama, Best Actress in a Drama, Best Supporting Actor, and Best Screenplay. It’s now being talked about as an Oscar frontrunner. This is bad news, because Three Billboards is terrible—a nasty, empty, lazy mess of a thing. Seeing it so praised and rewarded makes me feel like I’m losing my mind.
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".
