No ifs, no buts, she had the better of Donald Trump in last night's eagerly awaited first presidential TV debate. Yes, I know most online polls had Trump winning, but to believe that is to look at a black sky and say the sun's out.
We don't yet know exactly what led to the death of father-of-seven Keith Scott, 43, in Charlotte, North Carolina. Was he carrying a gun? Did he brandish that gun at police officers? Were they justified in fearing for their lives and using lethal force?
A vile, hideous, bigoted, nasty, ignorant, deluded, psychotic, ruthless, preposterous, demented buffoon on a collision course to steal the White House and destroy the planet. Oh, and he's a sexist, racist, homophobic, misogynist pig too, and every other word ending in '-ist' you can think of for that matter.
It began at a cemetery in Detroit, swirled around America, then reverberated across the Atlantic and clattered angrily into my airspace. It was the sound of Henry Ford turning in his grave. The greatest industrialist in the history of the United States would surely have been sickened by breaking news this morning about the world-renowned car company he created.
Speaking to a star-studded audience at a fund-raiser in New York, she inexplicably decided to abuse, denigrate and mock tens of millions of her fellow Americans. 'You could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables,' she sneered. 'Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic - you name it.'
Two crazed zombies slumped across a car in Ohio, mouths open and eyes sunken. Behind them is a young four-year-old boy, sitting patiently in his seat, wondering what the hell is going on. But this is not a movie set. This is the full, horrifying reality of heroin-ravaged America.
It happened during the Republican National Convention in 2012. It wasn't a deliberate snub. I was sitting with my then CNN colleague Wolf Blitzer just after we had done a live TV hit, and we were still attached to a number of cables which prevented us from jumping to our feet when we heard the Star-Spangled Banner strike up.
He had a massive presence. Not just physically, though he's an extraordinary human specimen: 6ft 4in tall, size 14 feet, massive hands and startlingly long arms giving him a freakish 6ft 7in albatross-like 'wing-span'. He had an intimidating mental presence too.
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".
