Oh, look who suddenly claims to support strengthening background checks for guns. Donald Trump is feeling the pressure as the brave Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students wage their fight for their lives and the lives of students like them. But it’s going to take a lot more pressure to turn these empty words into action:Democrats have been focusing on that since Sandy Hook, and Republicans blocked it, you vile unprintable.
After another major mass shooting in his state, top National Rifle Association contribution recipient Marco Rubio is trying to have it both ways on guns. And as he gets called out by the media for it, he’s getting defensive. He seems not to realize that just showing up to get national television exposure doesn’t make him a profile in courage. Gun laws have come up before in Rubio’s career and he’s handled them like he does so many issues: by trying to play both sides at once.
The student survivors at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School are planning protests and school walkouts for the coming months—but they’ve set off something now, too. Ten miles away from Parkland, in West Boca Raton, students gathered for 17 minutes of silence, a minute for each of the victims killed at MSD. But the silent mourning turned into a vocal and determined protest:Many of these aren’t kids who’ve been activists.
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".
