Malcolm Turnbull’s ‘annus horribilis’ is ending in much better shape than he almost certainly could have imagined a month ago.Events conspired to deliver the Prime Minister outcomes that allow him to claim his luck is changing.On Tuesday, he will unveil his ministerial reshuffle as the refreshed team to take the fight up to Labor and give the nation, as he is sure to say, “continuing good government”.He clearly believes that the Liberal win in one of the party’s heartland seats at the weekend...
Labor’s besieged senator Sam Dastyari has his colleagues hoping and even praying that he does the right thing for the team and quits Parliament.The diminutive politician has become a huge political problem for his leader Bill Shorten and for the Labor Party.While the government’s overblown rhetoric is in grave danger of harming Australia’s economic interests with a super-sensitive Beijing, clearly Malcolm Turnbull and his senior ministers think the risk is worth it for their domestic...
Malcolm Turnbull is not the first prime minister to accuse his political opponents of putting national security at grave risk – and he certainly won’t be the last.But Labor senator Sam Dastyari’s dealings with a Chinese billionaire are proving too good an opportunity to pass up.Especially as the Coalition government – despite a huge boost at the weekend with Barnaby Joyce easily winning the New England byelection – is ending a very messy year precisely where it began it.
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".
