Former French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen's campaign created a fake video that claimed to show a French journalist admitting his boss forbade reporters from criticizing Emmanuel Macron, a BuzzFeed France investigation has found. The fabricated video generated more than 4,500 shares on Facebook. Marine Le Pen's far-right party, the National Front, came closer than ever to winning the French presidential race in 2017.
The cruise line told Noisey the letter was a practical joke from a passenger. The Massachusetts police told AP the dead woman's boyfriend tipped them off. This post was published a website that describes itself as satirical, but frequently publishes false stories that play on fear and hatred, Snopes reports. This doctored screenshot was published by a "satirical" Facebook page, Snopes reports , and the former presidents did not send those tweets.
Click-bait headlines have been misleading about scientific reports on the subject, Snopes reports , so you don't have to hoard any chocolate. This is a case of an old hoax becoming new again. Originally this fake news item went viral in September 2017, but PolitiFact reports it was repurposed for 2018. Usually the iguanas aren't dead, just frozen , so you can bring them back to life by moving them into the sun. This story has circulated on unreliable websites for months, but it's not true.
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".
