Double Down12:22 20.06.2017Get short URLAs many dozens perish in a tower block fire in west London that spread rapidly due to cladding used in a recent refurbishment to improve the "eyesore" that the building was to the nearby wealthy oligarchs but at a saving of £5,000 for shareholders due to the flammable nature of said shoddy cladding, Double Down asks Steve Topple of TheCanary.co for the deeper significance of this appalling tragedy.
Double Down14:14 13.06.2017Get short URLAs HSBC faces yet another batch of lawsuits for historic forex manipulation allegations, Double Down asks John Titus, director of All the Plenary's Men, whether or not banks are actually immune to criminal charges. Titus explains that it is the FSB — the Financial Stability Board, that is — which grants them the powers of the sovereign whereby they can't be prosecuted for claims of "too big to fail" systemic importance.
There’s an old saying on Max Keiser’s Wall Street that goes, ‘If wishes were knishes, we’d all be fat.” This could explain why so many who tune into American junk cable news find all their fantasies confirmed (ie their wishes granted), and then their brain fat with conspiracy theory and false info. Donald Trump’s opponents in the media and politics, for example, can’t stop themselves from sharing fake news.
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".
