To gauge the deepest fears of Abraham Foxman, ask him if he worries about how President Trump might react to a major terror attack on American soil. Turning dark, the legendarily genial retired leader of the Anti-Defamation League said such a “calamity” might spur Trump to seek to vastly expand his executive powers in an atmosphere of fear and panic. “It’s a scary scenario,” he said, while nursing a bottle of Poland Spring sparkling water in Fresco, a midtown Manhattan eatery.
Facing stonewalling from the Trump administration, Senators Dick Durbin, Richard Blumenthal and Ben Cardin may not have many concrete options when it comes to White House aide Sebastian Gorka. But as Democratic lawmakers in a body with a Republication majority, the three senators made clear in a letter Monday their insistence on answers about Gorka’s ties to far-right anti-Semitic groups in Hungary and its effect on his status as a high-profile presidential aide.
The son of Sebastian Gorka, President Trump’s in-house jihad consultant and favorite defender on TV, appears to be an anti-corporate environmentalist. Teen-ager Paul Gorka’s AP science project at Langley High School in Virginia is a compelling brief against the bottled water industry, targeting its destructive impact on both the world’s water supply and on the wider environment as plastic bottles and the cancerous petrochemicals they leech spread through the ecosystem.
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".
