“Anti-Trump fervor” and more than $23 million wasn’t enough to turn Georgia’s sixth congressional district blue for the first time in decades. As Republicans gloated about Democrat Jon Ossoff’s loss to Karen Handel in the June 20 special election for a U.S. House seat, people latched on to a claim that Ossoff didn’t even garner as many votes as the Democrat listed on the ballot during the general election last November.
A fake Time magazine cover featuring President Donald Trump was spotted hanging at several of his properties. But at the Mar-a-Lago Club, his resort in Palm Beach, Florida, a Newsweek cover hanging next to the phony Time is real. The cover is from the March 1, 2004 edition, and it reads, “You’re Fired! Donald Trump and ‘The Apprentice’: TV’s Guilty Pleasure for a Nervous Economy.”The Washington Post first reported on Tuesday that the fake Time cover was hanging in at least five of Trump’s clubs.
More than double the number of bills and resolutions related to sanctuary cities and jurisdictions have been put forward by state lawmakers in the current round of legislative sessions than in the previous round, according to an analysis by FiscalNote, a government analytics startup. The uptick comes as President Donald Trump calls for the federal government to withhold funding from such jurisdictions.
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".
