A journalist in Florida says her Monday interview with GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump fell through after she refused to provide his campaign with questions in advance. Jenna Bourne, a reporter at CBS47/Fox30 in Jacksonville, told The Huffington Post the Trump campaign contacted her station last week to set up an interview for the candidate when he came to town for a rally.
NEW YORK ― DonaldTrump adviser Cliff Sims launched the inaugural episode of a nightly Facebook Live broadcast by promising to give viewers "the message straight from the campaign." "You don't have to take it through the media filter and all the spin that they put on it," Sims said.
But whether reporters are able to follow him or her throughout the day, as is done for the sitting president, remains unclear. Neither campaign has yet agreed to a protective pool to track the president-elect's movements, a departure from recent election cycles.
NEW YORK ― The Wall Street Journal is seeking a "substantial" number of employee buyouts as the newspaper grapples with industry-wide financial pressures. Editor-in-chief Gerard Baker notified staff Friday that management was first looking for buyout-takers in hopes of limiting layoffs down the line.
Fox News anchor Chris Wallace sparked controversy in recent weeks by saying he planned not to fact-check the candidates when moderating the third presidential debate. But that didn't stop him on Wednesday night from revisiting inaccuracies floated during the second one.
NEW YORK ― On Oct. 12, The New York Times published the accounts of two women claiming that Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump inappropriately touched them, part of a string of sexual assault allegations stretching back decades. Trump denied the charges, called the female Times reporter asking about them "disgusting," and vowed to sue the paper if they ran.
NEW YORK ― Chris Wallace has spent decades trying to puncture holes in politicians' false or misleading claims. But a presidential debate, he insists, isn't a Sunday morning interview. "An interview ― it's you and the candidate, and you're the person holding them to account," Wallace said over the weekend on "Fox News Sunday," the public affairs show he's hosted for 13 years.
NEW YORK ― Can Donald Trump turn voters into viewers? There have been rumblings for months that the media-obsessed former reality star's endgame is to launch a media company after the election to capitalize on the support he's received.
When reporters returned to the media section of a Donald Trump rally Thursday afternoon in West Palm Beach, Florida, there was a swastika waiting for them. The nominee, appearing desperate and unhinged, had just unloaded on the New York Times and other news outlets for reporting on allegations of inappropriate sexual conduct, behavior consistent with the vulgar and predatory boasts he made on a hot mic recording unearthed last week.
NEW YORK ― The Committee to Protect Journalists took a break Thursday from condemning media crackdowns in far flung dictatorships to highlight a threat in a country where press freedom is constitutionally enshrined. "Donald Trump, through his words and actions as a candidate for president of the United States, has consistently betrayed First Amendment values," CPJ board chairman Sandra Mims Rowe wrote in a statement Thursday.
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
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".
