Jeronimo Yanez, the officer who shot and killed Philando Castile last year, was cleared to continue walking the streets by a jury last week in Minnesota. This is the state of America. A place where our public servants can kill someone and get away with it. No one is surprised.
Obviously, there are people who don’t particularly like XXXTentacion; that’s not our problem, we’re just writers publishing the rap news the readers want. But from being sucker punched on stage to being thrown into a barrier by his own security, XXX has had a rough few weeks. When he got duffed, everyone blamed Rob Stone’s crew. One MASS APPEAL Facebook commenter said, “I hope they take each other out of the rap game.” From there we thought that maybe the drama at his shows would start to die down.
You all remember a few months back when we wrote about that white cop kicking a black man in the face for no good reason? If you’re thinking about the white cop in Atlanta, stop… We’re talking about the other white cop caught kicking a black man for no good reason. The one in Columbus, Ohio. We know, it’s easy to confuse all the cases of police brutality that surface on what seems to be a daily basis. If your memory is a little foggy, we’ll refresh you.
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".
