If there’s one thing liberals have made abundantly clear in recent years, it’s that disagreeing with them is an unforgivable sin. Debating the ideas is no longer necessary, while adhering to leftist orthodoxy has become the requirement. If you dare to stray away from the laws of acceptable thought, a leftist mob will be there to attempt to ruin your life. As conservatives, we’ve gotten pretty used to being labeled everything under the sun.
In a marriage of classical music and hip-hop, composer and conductor Steve Hackman brings his symphonic compositions to the Columbus Symphony Orchestra with his piece, “Tchaikovsky v. Drake.”As part of the orchestra’s pops series, the concert will feature three vocalists and a rapper, along with romantic era composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s iconic Symphony No.5 –– all combining to perform dozens of Drake’s songs, including hits like “Jumpman” and “Hotline Bling” on Sept. 15.
Imagine you go to the grocery store to pick up some milk, but when when you get there, the cashier starts lecturing you about his political beliefs. That’s kind of how it feels to watch ESPN these days. You think you’re going there for one thing, but instead get forced to listen to a lecture instead. As with almost all media, you can guess the direction of ESPN’s political slant. Instead of being a pleasant distraction for Americans, ESPN has succeeded in alienating half of the country.
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".
