BOSTON (CBS) - I can't remember which cable TV channel I heard it on the other night after the debate, but it was one of those panels of talking-head surrogates. You know, the campaign groupies they put on there to spout partisan talking points, as if this is of any use or interest to the viewer?
BOSTON (CBS) - Going into Thursday night's final presidential debate, Donald Trump's campaign was in big trouble. His rambling, ranting performance in the first debate once Hillary Clinton's needling knocked him off his issues triggered hemhorraging in his poll numbers, exacerbated by his eagerness to waste time and energy on sideshows like the weight of an old Miss Universe.
BOSTON (CBS) - Before the third and final presidential debate Thursday night, I offered up three ideas about what each candidate had to do to maximize their bounce out of the encounter. So let's review whether or not they followed my wise advice.
BOSTON (CBS) - In politics, you never say never. If nothing else, Donald Trump has taught us that much. Still, color me skeptical about Curt Schilling's chances of beating Elizabeth Warren in a potential 2018 U.S. Senate race. It's not that Warren isn't vulnerable, at least in theory.
BOSTON (CBS) - For months, the Donald Trump campaign has tried with limited success to remind us all about the Bill Clinton sex scandals of the 1990's. Watching Melania Trump's interview on CNN Monday night, I was reminded of Bill and Hillary Clinton's infamous "60 Minutes"interview in the run-up to the 1992 New Hampshire primary, and the comparison isn't flattering.
BOSTON (CBS) - Let's face it, we are an award-obsessed society. On the national level, there are awards for everything, close to 50 award shows for the TV and movie industries alone, along with countless sports awards.
BOSTON (CBS) - In a campaign filled with lazy thinking and dumb statements, the laziest, dumbest thing I've heard is that "the media" is trying to rig the election. I hear people say this quite a bit, and while I try not to be rude, I do sometimes ask them a simple question: what do you mean by "the media"?
BOSTON (CBS) - The third and final presidential debate will be held Wednesday night between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. What does their body language say about the candidates? Non-verbal communication expert Don Khoury has his take from the second debate.
BOSTON (CBS) - Congratulations to Bob Dylan for winning the Nobel Prize in Literature, I guess. He is a great songwriter, although his work reads more like poetry than literature. And now that this precedent has been set, there's the predictable avalanche of advocacy for other accomplished songwriters, like Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell and Bruce Springsteen to get their turn.
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
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".
