I love bumper stickers. I smile at the almost infinite variety of messages and declarations, from the sassy to the profane to the almost, or in some cases absolutely, profound. My current favorite is this one: “Kindness matters.”Do you ever feel we have forgotten this is contemporary America? Especially in the visual and digital channels of talk and chatter?
Some of the excerpts of Michael Wolff’s book, Fire and Fury, seem believable, most seem fantastic, even comically fantastic. But I am not sure what it changes. Trump haters will still hate him, perhaps more if that is possible. Trump fans may love him more. Those with a mixed view of the President — people who, say, approve of some of his policies or his “get ‘er done” approach to the presidency but are uncomfortable with his particular presidential style — will also feel the same way only more so.
President Trump is often portrayed by the pundits as two things I think he is not: a mystery and a man without values, without a center. VIDEO: Liberty is not the enemy of our interestsThe President’s unique approach to the presidency and his insistence that he can do serious work and stoke the base at the same time may be a-historical and it may well be unsustainable, but to most Americans it is not a mystery, it’s just 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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
