Comedian Tom Arnold has been saying since before the 2016 election that he has seen an unreleased tape of outtakes of “The Apprentice” in which President Donald Trump uses the N-word. Now he’s told Chicago Inc. that he last year had a conversation with Hollywood superagent Ari Emanuel — Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s brother — about what he believes is embarrassing, unseen footage of Trump at the Miss Universe pageant, which Ari Emanuel’s company now owns.
Spare a thought for WGN News anchor Ben Bradley, whose Twitter feed has been blowing up this week with all kinds of abuse from our chums across the pond. It seems that many Brits have confused the cheerful Bradley with a rather less pleasant fellow by the same name: British member of parliament Ben Bradley, who wrote a now-deleted blog post arguing that unemployed people should opt for vasectomies and not have children they can’t afford.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson invited Ald. George Cardenas onto his show Wednesday night to discuss immigration policy and . . . well, you can guess how it ended. “What a loathsome little demagogue you are Mr. Cardenas,” Carlson told the alderman during the exchange.
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".
