Outgoing White House press secretary Sean Spicer trashed the media on the same day he resigned his position, and said most White House reporters are more interested in getting clicks than writing about the truth and facts. "I was increasingly disappointed in how so many members of the media do their job, or rather don't do their job," Spicer said in an interview on Fox News.
James Clapper, President Obama's director of national intelligence, said Friday he sometimes wonders whether President Trump "is about making Russia again." Clapper and John Brennan, the CIA director under Obama, criticized Trump's approach towards Russia during an appearance at the Aspen Security Forum in Colorado. "I sometimes wonder if what he is about is making Russia great again," Clapper said. "I really wonder about that sometimes. That's a real concern.
Minneapolis Police Chief Janee Harteau resigned on Friday nearly a week after one of the force's officers fatally shot an unarmed Australian woman who had called 911 to report a possible sexual assault near her home. "Last Saturday's tragedy, as well as some other recent incidents, have caused me to engage in deep reflection," said Harteau, a 30-year veteran of the police department, in a statement. "The recent incidents do not reflect the training and procedures we've developed as a Department."
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".
