Barack Obama is once again the most admired man in America. For the 10th year in a row, the former president topped the annual Gallup poll, with 17 percent of the vote where U.S. respondents were asked to name the person they most admired. President Donald Trump followed with 14 percent, placing ahead of Pope Francis (3 percent) and the Rev. Billy Graham (2 percent). Others receiving votes included Sens.
“Coming out as a gay man is not the same thing as coming out as someone who preyed on a 14-year-old. Conflating those things is disgusting,” tweeted movie critic Richard Lawson. When actor Anthony Rapp alleged Sunday that Kevin Spacey made a sexual advance toward him 30 years ago when Rapp was just 14 years old, Spacey dismissed it as “drunken behavior” he couldn’t recall and apologized to Rapp in a tweet.
More than 200 players joined in solidarity Sunday to protest Trumpâ€™s assault on their right to protest racial injustices.ÂThe response this weekend by NFL players and other professional athletes to President Trumpâ€™s attacks on their right to protest could best be summed up by a comment from a Twitter user going by the name of Frederick Douglass: â€œSons of bitches join up with the nasty women and bad hombres and take back our country.â€? Those â€œsons of bitches,â€?
@kumailn@WGAWest@WGAEast@emilyvgordon Kumail, I finally got around to watching “The Big Sick” over the holiday (and not on pornhub), and I’ve been raving about how unexpected and extraordinarily well written it is. Certainly a top contender for best original screenplay!
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".
