Stephen K. Bannon, until Friday President Trump’s chief strategist, is leaving the White House. It is a satisfying day for anyone who believes this avowedly virulent man should never have been allowed near the halls of power. Bannon’s exit comes just after the sacking of Rich Higgins, a former National Security Council staffer who wrote a memo alleging dark treasonous conspiracies on the part of “globalists” and others who oppose the president.
Senior Democrats on Wednesday endorsed an irrational, socially destructive line of policy that would not be out of place in the Trump White House. No, they did not join Attorney General Jeff Sessions in his intensifying campaign against reverse racism. And they did not announce support for President’s Trump’s absurd border wall. They released a get-tough-on-trade program designed to out-demagogue Trump on one of his signature messages. This is classic Democrats.
“How did it come to this?” Reince Priebus said. “When we struck our deal two years ago, I thought you would make me White House chief of staff to Jeb Bush or Marco Rubio. Ted Cruz if it came to that. But then to suffer the daily humiliation of serving THAT man. The mocking. He ordered me to swat flies in the Oval Office. He would constantly remind me of how I asked him to drop out of the race during the “Access Hollywood” fiasco.
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".
