The TAKE with Rick KleinIn this national #MeToo moment, President Donald Trump is rendering judgment that says, "not us." It's a major moment that has the president of the United States standing with someone facing multiple allegations of sexual misconduct – and against the word of eight separate women who alleged inappropriate contact – because Trump says Roy Moore didn't do anything wrong. But mainly, and critically, the president is standing with Moore because he is a Republican.
The TAKE with Rick KleinHis stand is to take no stand. A man who doesn’t hold back his opinions has found a reason to go all but silent. That reason is named Roy Moore. His candidacy has been enough to force some discipline on President Donald Trump, with a refusal to comment that speaks louder than the contradictions among his own White House staffers. Political motivations are the obvious explanation, as Kellyanne Conway’s attack on Democrat Doug Jones makes clear.
The TAKE with Rick KleinAs a nation slows down to give thanks this week, President Donald Trump thinks he should be getting more of it. The president took time out of his weekend to spar anew with his vanquished rival, tweeting that “Crooked Hillary Clinton is the worst (and biggest) loser of all time.” He topped that by attacking the father of one of the UCLA student-athletes he helped free, saying LaVar Ball doesn’t appreciate his efforts. “I should have left them in jail!” Trump tweeted.
New to me... Martin O'Malley just told me and @jonkarl that Trump is like a "self-basting turkey." Don't have to worry about mentioning him in a Dem campaign - he's cooking the whole time. Or something like that. #powerhousepolitics
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".
