Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y.) stopped by a high school a few blocks from my apartment* on Wednesday and hopped on a bike. But the bike didn't go anywhere! I don't understand why. Here is a GIF of Rangel on the bike that we made from a video at Business Insider.
On Friday morning, Matt Drudge was feeling celebratory on Twitter. (Drudge, no dummy at the internet, purges his tweets regularly, which is why we've included a screenshot.) The daily Los Angeles Times-USC Dornsife tracking poll, Drudge pointed out, showed Donald Trump up 5.6 points on Sep.
A poll from CNN-ORC the night of the first debate of the 2016 presidential election shows that Donald Trump lost, 62 to 27. A poll from NBC-SurveyMonkey echoed that, finding that Trump lost 52 to 21.
Donald Trump woke up mad. Or maybe he got made before he went to sleep. It's hard to say, but the point is the same. While most American voters were asleep, Trump was up and tweeting about things that were making him angry.
CNN's Jim Acosta got a copy of talking points sent out by Donald Trump's campaign on Wednesday, listing a slew of responses campaign surrogates could offer when pressed on tricky issues, like their candidate's poor performance in the debate.
ABC's Ryan Struyk noticed something interesting in the new Post-ABC poll. From our ABC/Post poll: 75% of people over 30 years old said they were "absolutely certain" to vote in November vs. only 41% of millennials.
Sometimes, Donald Trump jokes. He jokes a lot, sometimes because he is actually joking and sometimes he is joking retroactively in an effort to wave away something he said that annoyed people. On Wednesday afternoon it seems to have been a bit of both.
It seems to be taken as something of an article of faith among supporters of Donald Trump and by Trump himself that the reintroduction of the Monica Lewinsky scandal would be detrimental to Hillary Clinton's candidacy.
Tuesday was National Voter Registration Day. To the extent that you were aware of this, it was probably because you, like me, were greeted with a prompt to ensure you were registered when you went to Facebook to see what some-guy-you-went-to-high-school-with's baby looks like.
At the top of his rally in the critical Wisconsin county of Waukesha on Wednesday night, Donald Trump accused the search giant Google of both impeding and bolstering his candidacy. "A new post-debate poll, the Google poll, has us leading Hillary Clinton by two points nationwide," he said, "and that's despite the fact that Google search engine was suppressing the bad news about Hillary Clinton.
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".
