My 4-year-old son brought home his art project displaying what he was thankful for, which included his fish George, brother, cousins, grandparents, and mom and dad. This time of year most people reflect on what they cherish most — usually their health and family. Naturally you begin to think about how you can help those that are less fortunate. As a mom, I always turn to kids who don’t have parents able to care for them.
Powerful men accused of sexual misconduct are dropping like flies, but there’s one prominent name missing from the list: Bill Clinton. It’s been two decades since Clinton’s impeachment trial, a trial he survived due to political support and Democrats standing by their man. Would Clinton survive today? That’s a question Clinton supporters need to come to terms with now. Back in the ’90s, Democrats chose to look the other way, despite Monica Lewinsky and disturbing accusations by other women.
Joe Biden is not the answer for Democrats in 2020. Some in the media are already drooling over that prospect as the former vice president hawks his new book. But liberal kingmakers shouldn’t fall for this love fest. Biden represents the glory days of the past when former President Obama ran the country. He doesn’t represent the future. Never mind he would be in his late 70s when entering office. Political pundits can get nostalgic all they want about Biden, but it should end there.
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".
