In July 2012, Charlie Craig and David Mullins went shopping for a wedding cake at a bakery in Lakewood, Colorado. Their trip will end more than five years later on the steps of the supreme court. A ruling over cakeshop owner Jack Phillips’s refusal to serve them by the US’s most senior judicial panel could erode civil rights protections for LGBT Americans or bolster them. “In addition to standing up for ourselves, it’s standing up for these people too,” Craig told the Guardian.
It has been called the new Daily Show, “cooler than cool”, and “the left’s answer to conservative talk radio”, and has become a top destination for any Democrat thinking of running against Donald Trump in 2020. Pod Save America is a podcast featuring Jon Favreau, Jon Lovett, Dan Pfeiffer and Tommy Vietor: former aides to Barack Obama who left the White House for Hollywood, whose show now reaches an average of 1.5 million Americans per episode and sells out live events across the US.
Identity politics used to be for Democrats – now it’s for Republicans and they’re using it perniciously. Identity politics have long been central to the message of the Democratic party, viewed as a constituency of African American people, Hispanic people, educated white progressives, LGBTQ people, single women and more. Liberals, don’t fall into the right’s ‘identity politics’ trap | Linda BurnhamConservatives, meanwhile, had previously defined themselves ideologically.
Among the worst pieces of “wisdom” ever given to me as cub reporter was not to call academics, the assumption probably being I was too dumb to locate the right expertise.
To anyone is still operating under that idiocy: please know the only dumb part of any of that is the advice.
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".
