This president doesn't need any assistance landing himself in a world of trouble. It's been a rough couple of days for CNN, which on Monday accepted the resignations of three prominent journalists after the network was forced to retract and apologize for a story that connected Trump advisor Anthony Scaramucci to a Russian investment fund. (The story, CNN insiders reported, "wasn't solid enough to publish as-is.")
Who could have seen this coming? Martin Shkreli, an extremely lifelike Chucky doll who managed to parlay a history of price-gouging AIDS patients, harassing journalists, and contemplating the destruction of priceless works of art into a form of middling Internet notoriety, goes on trial in Brooklyn this week for what is at once his most allegedly criminal and also, somehow, his least offensive act: securities fraud.
It's warm out, which means you're probably wearing shorts in public for the first time in months. But since there is no sight more painful than an otherwise fit, stylish gentlemen sporting a pair of spindly, reedy, twig-like legs that protrude down from his shorts and into his lightweight sneaker of choice, we asked a few fitness professionals for something new to try next time there's a line for your gym's lone calf raise machine. This summer, be Lamar Odom, not Johnny Drama.
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".
