“I like(d) Al Franken. Until I heard about this. If it’s true, he should resign.”“I am dismayed at what is now being termed ‘assault’ and how easily we use the word ‘violated.’ I say that as a husband of a woman who was actually assaulted in a violent way last year. She ended up getting drugged, raped and impregnated by a stranger (and yes, we decided on an abortion). As a child, I was molested at 4 to 6 years old many times by entrusted family friends.
— Max, Boston, reacting to an article about the comedian Louis C.K. being accused by five women of overstepping professional bounds by masturbating in front of them. 4. As a three-tour combat vet of Iraq I have used semiautomatic and automatic weapons in the defense of my nation to fight the war on terrorism. We shouldn’t have to attend church with a concealed carry just to worship the deity of our choice.
The majority of us are perfectly good at keeping our hands off innocent children and just letting kids be kids. — Helen Wagner, on The New York Times’s Facebook page, reacting to an article about Kevin Spacey, who came out as gay while apologizing to an actor for a decades-old sexual accusation. 4. You all do realize, don’t you, that this kind of attack cannot be prevented. All it takes is one guy (it’s almost always a guy) sitting at home, angry, plotting how he wants to kill people.
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".
