Donald Trump is forever under attack–actally mocking, which is different but has the same effect–for attacking the New York Times, and CNN as “failing” or “fake news.” Now we have Hillary Clinton attacking the New York Times for “shoddy reporting” on her email scandal, and …I’m waiting for the outrage to bubble up over Hillary undermining the all important press as it carries out its sacred duty to ferret out the truth and inform the public on critical issues which it must understand for the...
The group of conservatives in the House of Representatives that calls itself The Freedom Caucus is headed, seemingly, by Mark Meadows of South Carolina. The Freedom Caucus stands for… well, let them tell you themselves. But I get the general drift that it’s for fiscal conservativism, for freedom, for lots of stuff that motivated the Tea Party when there was a Tea Party.
Alberta's energy minister is vowing to stand with TransCanada in the fight to get Energy East, even as the Calgary-based company moves to suspend its application in view of the national regulator's new, more wide-ranging review process. TransCanada issued a statement Thursday announcing it will suspend its application for the pipeline for 30 days while it conducts a "careful review" of the National Energy Board's (NEB) new assessment process.
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".
