HRC published a great, one might even say nifty, Marriage Equality map that I wanted to share. (HRC, you say? I know!) I needed to chop the map up a bit to make it fit, so the legend describing the various colors is at the bottom of the map. But what’s nice about it is that it does a great job showing which states have gay marriage, which ban it legislatively, which ban it in the state constitution, and which have civil unions.
In today’s podcast, Cliff and I discuss the GOP Congress’ undying need to defend Donald Trump at all costs (the latest example being their determination to lie for Trump about Sh*tholeGate); a new report that Trump allegedly paid a porn star $130,000 to keep her quiet right before the election; and the importance of the recent civil defense snafu in Hawaii in an age in which Trump has North Korea, and everyone else, on pins and needles.
Hillary Clinton’s real record on LGBT rights There’s been a lot of recent talk by Trump supporters, and some millennials, about how Hillary “isn’t very good” on LGBT rights. Nothing could be further from the truth. I was there in the 1990s, working on LGBT rights in Washington, DC., and I’m going to share some LGBT history with you. In a nutshell, Hillary rocks on our issues. Please support our independent journalism with a generous donation. Help us defeat Donald Trump in November.
The rise of the Alt Right showed him that a Jewish state is just like, an as immoral as, the Alt Right. Did it now? People need to learn their history — aka things that happened before they turned 18. Cuz that’s one f’d up and naive argument. https://twitter.com/i24NEWS_EN/status/955974077189099520
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".
