During President Trump’s shouty, unhinged Tuesday press conference, he astonishingly (or not so astonishingly, given all we’ve come to expect from him) managed to morally equate what he’s now calling the “alt-left” with the Nazis who were responsible for the murder of 32-year-old Heather Heyer, while also bragging that Heyer’s mother had reached out to thank him for his previous (and comparatively sober) remarks.
Logic has been having a pretty great week. After making his animated TV debut on Sunday’s new episode of Rick and Morty, the 27-year-old rapper released his latest music video on Thursday for “1-800-273-8255,” (ft. Alessia Cara, Khalid), which has already gotten over two million views on YouTube — at the time of this writing — in the 24 hours or so since it dropped.
With all of the ongoing turmoil in this country, which only continues to grow now that actual Nazis have become empowered, one voice sorely being missed in the fray is Jon Stewart. Although thankfully, when the former Daily Show host (who also has a standup special forthcoming) does pop up, such as from literally under Stephen Colbert’s desk earlier this year, it’s always worth the wait.
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".
