CLEVELAND, Ohio -- At least we know where President Donald Trump stands. No apology or clarification is needed from Trump or his surrogates. There's no mistaking his vicious slur of Africa. There's no excusing or explaining his commentary as tough, non-politically correct language. President Donald Trump has a problem with Africa or "shithole" nations, as he put it in a private discussion about immigration last Thursday. Does this make the commander-in-chief a racist, as some now allege?
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Last November, the New York Times published a glowing story about Cleveland's Detroit-Shoreway neighborhood under the headline, "Arts District Hustles and Rebounds." The piece chronicled how the Gordon Square Arts District has spurred an impressive residential and commercial resurgence in the West Side Cleveland neighborhood. Nearly 1,000 new condominiums and apartments were under construction when the story was published.
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- A Cleveland man had just finished raking his yard in the city's Lee-Harvard neighborhood this past fall when a bag of fast-food debris landed on his tree lawn, courtesy of a passing motorist. The man in the yard flung his arms up in disgust. He stared after the car. He felt a sense of helplessness and anger, but what could he do? The bag had been tossed and the jerk was continuing on his merry way. Suddenly, the situation took a volatile turn.
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".
