Donald Trump is the only one who can right his presidency, and there’s still no signs of him changing at all. Remember when new chief of staff John Kelly came riding into the White House and Anthony Scaramuccci was shown the door? Things were going to be different. More disciplined. Less leaking. That hasn’t happened, largely because Trump continues to be undisciplined and unmanageable. His comments and tweets in the wake of the Charlottesville tragedy threw his administration into yet another crisis.
A day after celebrating a little boy who wanted peace, we get a grisly reminder of war. The terror attack in Barcelona came just hours after Boston broke ground on a park dedicated to Martin Richard, the 8-year-old killed in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings. The groundbreaking was a touching tribute to little Martin, and showed that when a city pulls together it can accomplish remarkable things. Unfortunately, we’re not doing much pulling together lately.
The “Top Chef” not guilty verdict doesn’t wash away the city’s links to union bullying tactics, but it does mark another fortunate turn for Mayor Martin J. Walsh amid another banner week for his re-election campaign. Walsh, a former union leader himself, has to feel somewhat vindicated by seeing four Teamsters walk free after federal prosecutors failed to prove they extorted the “Top Chef” show for union jobs.
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".
