Morford: How do you like your End Times, America? Is it God’s wrath, come 'round again? Are the heavens furious over, say, Houston’s lesbian mayor? Or Florida’s idiotic, science-denying governor? What about all the open-carry trolls with guns? Is it the inbred neo-Nazis? The gays? The Muslim ban? What about the Orange Goblin?
Morford: Trump is a most shameful and cruel old manHistory is going to need a new thesaurus. We are fast running out of sufficiently derogatory words for Trump and his vile, cancerous administration. "Cruel" has become a frontrunner, and for good reason. Also heartless, incompetent, laughable, shallow and megalomaniacal, authoritarian and desperately, gaspingly vain. Deeply racist, misogynistic, imbecilic and a thousand more. On it goes.
Greetings, inbred racist white male neo-Nazi thug trolls with breath like turpentine and moldy asparagus and old tires! What an odd thing seeing you anywhere near San Francisco, in particular anywhere close to my charming, vibrant neighborhood, Alamo Square, after you chickened out relocated your, um, Patriot Prayer “rally” from Crissy Field over to this tiny, delightful gem of a windswept park no one wants you anywhere near! Were you attempting to bring violence and turmoil to my neighborhood?
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".
