President Donald Trump said he wasn’t putting anybody on a moral plane after the violence in Charlottesville, but corporate America sure is. Many top CEOs criticized Trump’s response and denounced the hate groups promoting racism. So many executives threatened to quit Trump’s business advisory panels that the president disbanded them. As The New York Times summed it up over the weekend: CEOs have found their moral voice.
Business just beat back the so-called bathroom bill in a special session, but there’s little time to celebrate. Not with the lieutenant governor vowing to bring back the issue and the governor on board. Not with primary elections for state office only seven months away. That’s right. Just as one political push ends, another is on the horizon, and business should be gearing up for it. Employers, like everybody else, have to fight for the state they want.
In early 2016, well before AT&T struck a deal to buy Time Warner Inc., CEO Randall Stephenson publicly prodded employees to gear up for Google, Amazon and other online giants. Early this month, AT&T fired another salvo in that direction. It recruited a New York ad executive, Brian Lesser, to head a new advertising and analytics unit to capitalize on the Time Warner addition, which is expected to be approved by the end of the year.
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".
