Robert Robb: The threat to destroy North Korea wasn't so bad. But the rest of Trump's speech proved how incoherent his foreign policy is. The incoherence of President Donald Trump’s foreign policy was in full bloom with his speech to the United Nations. As a candidate, Trump promised an America First foreign policy. A realpolitik approach based on a narrow and cold calculation of the national interest.
Robert Robb: Virtually all the criticisms of the Graham-Cassidy Obamacare alternative are wrong. That doesn't mean it should pass. The Obamacare alternative developed by Sens. Lindsey Graham and Bill Cassidy isn’t the best way forward, although not for the reasons it is receiving such heavy incoming bombardment. The first step in sensibly evaluating it is to put aside all the studies coming forth predicting gloom, doom and rampant disease. They are all speculative nonsense.
Robert Robb: Republicans are focusing on the wrong things to reform. There's a better way - and it's already been spelled out for us. On tax reform, congressional Republicans are about to go down another dead-end road. There are many reasons that failure is likely. But the fundamental conceptual flaw is the unwillingness to take on a reduction in the top individual income tax rate. Instead, the focus is on reducing the corporate income tax rate. That’s an important undertaking.
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
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".
