If you’ve been following the news lately, you know President Donald Trump is his own biggest fan. He routinely defends his intelligence, while his actions contradict his assertions. Remember when previous presidents’ minor gaffes looked a little thick? In reality, Trump made George W. Bush look like a genius in a lot of scenarios. Try not to cringe too hard at these times Trump really stepped in it. Don’t miss one the time we just have to give him credit.
President Donald Trump’s son and his wife are getting a divorce, and the president’s favorite website may have played a role. Donald Trump Jr. and his wife, Vanessa Trump, filed for divorce on March 15, according to Page Six. While marriage and divorce both contain complexities, some details have emerged about the reason behind their dissolution. Let’s see if you can separate fact from fiction. True or false: The couple has confirmed their split?
Blink and you’ll miss the rapid-fire changes going on at the White House. On March 13, President Donald Trump unceremoniously fired Secretary of State Rex Tillerson via Twitter, promoting outgoing CIA director Mike Pompeo to serve in his place. The president then tapped deputy CIA director Gina Haspel, 61, as the first woman to lead the CIA, pending confirmation. Some of the facts coming out about her may surprise you — and some could even prevent her from getting the job.
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".
