It’s one of those words that you recognize instantly and without explanation. If you’re a woman, you don’t want to be around it and you certainly don’t want to be it. I was reminded of that word while listening to this episode of This American Life, which breaks fresh ground on the well-trodden path that is sexual harassment coverage in 2018.
About a month has passed since the Parkland, Florida shooting, and since then, the president’s position on gun control efforts has shifted like sand. However, Donald Trump penned a series of Tweets this morning that offer some clarity, at least for the moment. Trump now claims support for strengthening background checks, banning bump stocks (which last year’s Las Vegas shooter used while killing 58 people) and arming teachers.
Conspiracy theories are mother’s milk to InfoWars, which is why YouTube removed one of its videos this week. That’s also why the far-right site accused CNN of “turning to censorship” by lobbying the video platform to suspend InfoWars. InfoWars’ incorrect and manipulative post, which editor Paul Joseph Watson wrote today, is yet another example of the far-right media doubling down on a conspiracy theory and attacking news organizations they view as a threat.
the spirit of Gloppy also best embodies my natural curves, which elude typical descriptions (i.e. hourglass, pear, potato chip, scary ghost). lil gloopy is proud of her ineffable curves, y'all #bodypositive
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
