On Saturday, Donald Trump once again used his Twitter feed to kick up a news microcycle when he tweeted that if Mark Cuban, a prominent Hillary Clinton supporter and occasional Trump nemesis, was going to attend the debate, "perhaps I will put Gennifer Flowers right alongside of him!"
Times Insider delivers behind-the-scenes insights into how news, features and opinion come together at The New York Times. In this piece, Susan Dominus, a staff writer for The Times Magazine whose profile of Sarah Jessica Parker is on the cover of Sunday's Arts & Leisure section, muses on some eerie similarities between the trappings of her own life and those of the leading TV characters Ms. Parker has played over the last two decades.
Yesterday, Hillary Clinton arguably had one of her most effective public appearances in months, and it happened on the website Funny or Die. Clinton appeared as a guest on " Between Two Ferns " with Zach Galifianakis, a semi-aggressive, extremely rumpled comedian and sort-of talk show host who makes David Letterman look painfully earnest by comparison.
Sarah Jessica Parker was waiting for a menu at a restaurant in Hastings-on-Hudson, a Westchester County suburb of New York, when a 50-something man in a polo shirt and shorts showed up at her table. "I'm out of your face right after this little note I made for you - check it out," he said.
For all of her famed competence, Hillary Clinton has also been, from the beginning, something of a stumbler. While she was a still a prospective first lady, she famously insulted all those cookie-baking mothers of the world; there was a gap between her and everywoman, and she walked right into it with a misstep that colored her public persona going forward.
When Hillary Clinton took the seat for her interview with NBC's Matt Lauer at the Commander-in-Chief Forum that was broadcast on the network Wednesday night, she smiled warmly at the "Today" show co-anchor. "I'm happy you're doing this," she said. Even before the first question of substance came up, she most likely felt otherwise.
In December 2013, Colleen Walsh, a social-studies teacher at Leadership and Public Service High School in Manhattan's Financial District, called one of the school's four deans in charge of discipline. She had just had a short, heated dispute in the hallway with a 17-year-old student who had his cellphone out, a violation of school rules.
Tonight even some of Hillary Clinton's most ardent fans might be bracing themselves for disappointment in her speech at the Democratic National Convention. They might well console themselves with the possibility that her failure to do "realness" on an operatic scale is, by now, its own form of authenticity.
I never really intended for it to become my workout routine. I first started playing "Just Dance" two years ago, when someone gave my 8-year-old twin sons an Xbox. Most of the system's games would have them cultivating lethal marksmanship, while even the less-bloody titles seemed destined to foul up their reward system with excessive showers of virtual gold coins.
ONE after the other, like beautiful, glittering drones, the Rockettes spilled off an elevator onto the stage level at Radio City Music Hall. Dressed in sequined skating costume, their shoulders swaying, they sauntered down a narrow hallway and gathered off stage right, waiting to go on for the holiday show's opening night.
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
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".
