Joseph Goebbels’ doctrine - “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it,” has become a glaring and uncomfortable reality. India is witnessing the same phenomenon for the last few years, where the nation has become a lab and its inhabitants, mere lab-rats. Politicians are nurturing an ecosystem of fake news that creates ingredients and then spreads it via its own channels.
“At 20, during an interview, the male boss kept rubbing my knee and said I'll go far if I'm a "good girl"...it's for p-t job at a bar. #MeToo”“I was fired for filing one too many sexual harassment complaints at work. It destroyed #MeToo”“Hardest post I’ve made. No one needs to know my story No one needs to know how many times No one needs to know how I feel Just know, #MeToo”“A casual glide on the hip & waist, a hard-hit on the chest. Where to begin & where to end?
October 11 marks a huge leap in the history of the fight against sexual exploitation of the minors who are married at a tender age. The Supreme Court of India, in a landmark judgement, ruled that sexual intercourse with a minor wife between the age of 15-18 amounts to rape. It also noted that the legal age of consent for sex is 18 and it cannot be whittled down. The husband is liable to be prosecuted if the woman files a legal complaint within a year of the sexual act, the Supreme Court said.
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".
