With the big story of the day centering on the exploding feud between White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci and White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, CNN’s Jake Tapper began his show recapping the situation. And he came armed with pop culture references. Referencing Scaramucci’s since-deleted tweet seemingly accusing Priebus of leaking docs to Politico, Tapper noted that for once the “mean tweets” coming from the White House weren’t by the president.
During today’s White House press briefing, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was immediately pressed on the major story of the day — White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus essentially being accused by White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci of being a leaker. Regarding the whole issue, ABC News’ Jonathan Karl bluntly asked Sanders if the president has confidence in his chief of staff.
Yesterday, House and Senate leaders reached a deal on a Russian sanctions bill that was overwhelmingly passed in both chambers. The bill will now head to President Donald Trump’s desk for signature. However, during an appearance on CNN this morning, White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci indicated that the president may veto the bill and suggest tougher sanctions against Russia if there’s “smoking gun proof” of election interference.
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".
