America's billionaires are tired of hearing your complaints from the cheap seats. Consider Home Depot co-founder Ken Langone (net worth: $2.3 billion, according to Forbes), who went ahead and compared criticisms of income inequality in America to “what Hitler was saying.”Here’s the quote, as reported in a Politico piece called “The Rich Strike Back”: “Because if you go back to 1933, with different words, this is what Hitler was saying in Germany.
The interior of the subway I rode Tuesday in New York City was wallpapered to resemble a library, with images of shelves stocked with leather-bound volumes providing a mostly aspirational backdrop to a row of sweaty, frustrated riders. The city rolled out cellular and wireless Internet service to all of its stations this year; the fancy wallpaper on the E train celebrates an initiative through which riders are able to access free chapters of books.
In some ways, Friday began like any other day. President Donald Trump fired up his Twitter app and sent off some defensive messages about the investigation into his campaign’s contacts with Russia, which has expanded to probe whether the president obstructed justice. But his series of tweets sent this morning reveal a grim reality for the White House: the president is running out of excuses.
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".
