President Trump's bizarre suggestion that NBC's "license" be "challenged" over a news report he didn't like reflects a fundamental ignorance about how federal broadcast licensing works, not to mention a dangerous disregard for free speech, according to policy experts. Trump's latest attack on the news media appeared to be in response to a NBC News report describing how the president called for a dramatic increase in US nuclear stockpiles during a July meeting.
Open internet advocates and Democratic lawmakers are mounting a last-ditch effort to remove Federal Communications Commission chief Ajit Pai over his anti-net neutrality stance, just days before Pai is set to be approved by the Senate for a new term.
Gawker Media, the blog powerhouse built by Nick Denton, has been hacked. After bringing the company's websites to a standstill Sunday, one or more hackers operating under the name Gnosis released a 500-MB file apparently containing Gawker's source code, commenter and staff passwords, and internal conversations between the company's employees. The e-mail addresses and passwords of hundreds of thousands of Gawker users have been compromised, the hackers said.
@WardQNormal It breaks my heart what has happened to a once-proud political party. Here in the northeast, the pro-choice, pro-science, pro-civil rights, pro-LGBTQ equality, pro-environmental conservation Republicans are all but gone.
@WardQNormal Individual members of the Republican Party have made positive contributions to our country over the last 40 years. Like my late grandmother. Alas, her breed is nearly extinct. https://t.co/vrkvyem9Q6
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".
