After days of speculation that President Donald Trump was planning to shake up his communications team, it was announced July 21 that Wall Streeter Anthony Scaramucci accepted the position of White House Communications Director. As the news about Scaramucci broke, Sean Spicer resigned as Press Secretary. Rumors swirled that the Spicer news was related to Scaramucci’s new post—the finance exec would’ve been Spicer’s boss. Here are 9 things you need to know about Trump’s new communications head.
The hosts of Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough, told an incredible story on Friday morning, alleging that earlier this year top White House staff members warned them that the National Enquirer was prepared to publish a negative article about the MSNBC hosts—but they could prevent it by calling President Donald Trump to apologize for things they'd said about him on their morning show.
Morning Joe hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough planned to go to Fenway Park Thursday night before leaving town for the July 4 weekend but changed plans after President Donald Trump tweeted vile comments about Brzezinski. The pair instead skipped the game and appeared on their MSNBC show Friday morning to address the tweets — and reveal disturbing details about their relationship with the president. The MSNBC show began with contributor Donnie Deutsch railing against Trump.
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".
