That’s how the former Fox News host described his getting bounced from the network to NBC’s Matt Lauer on Tuesday morning. “There were billions of dollars at stake in business deals and they made a business decision that they could prosper without me,” O’Reilly continued. When Lauer asked if he had an regrets, O’Reilly didn’t hesitate. “I can go to sleep at night very well knowing that I never mistreated anyone on my watch in 42 years,” he said.
A few weeks ago, CNBC declared last month to be “The August of Apple,” cheering how the stock, just like it did in February and March, had been leading all Dow components as the index continued its assault on record highs. So far in September, only United Technologies UTX, +0.32% shares are faring worse than Apple AAPL, +0.17% among the blue chips, yet the Dow industrials keep breaking into uncharted territory. Is there a change afoot?
The U.S. officially topped $20 trillion in national debt less week, and, as you might expect, it triggered the kind of finger-pointing you’ve probably grown accustomed to in this divided political environment. But how about some perspective? Read: This is how the U.S. got to $20 trillion in debt. Yes, of course, nobody comes close to the U.S. in the sheer size of its debt. In fact, the total debt of every country in the European Union combined doesn’t even get there.
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".
