Oh, dear me. When a fully-triggered leftist decides to kick a can of teargas back at the police during a riot, you can be fairly certain it’s not going to end well for him. He’s basically begging the police to fire back, so he can claim some sort of politically correct victim status. Sometimes, the cops refrain from offering a response. Other times, they do not.
Take a look at the picture at the top of the page. Go ahead. Take your time, and study it. ...We’re not in a hurry and there will be a quiz in a moment, so be sure you’ve really gotten a good, long, look at the two men. Which one of those men is southern Civil War General Robert E. Lee? I know, it’s a bit tricky. They look a lot alike. I assure you, though, there is a right answer here. No “common core” explanations, either. Just pick one. OK, give up?
Valerie Plame - yes that Valerie Plame - has decided that her ignoble 15 minutes aren’t quite up yet. Th former CIA agent has decided to extend her brief flirtation with fame by announcing a new GoFundMe scheme to, get this, raise a billion dollars, buy Twitter, and “take away Trump’s megaphone.” That’s right, she wants everyone to donate their hard-earned cash so she can become Twitter’s largest shareholder and silence the President.
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".
