Why 'South Park' Is Perfectly Armed to Fight the Alt-RightThe satirical cartoon has a perfect chance to turn around and bite the trollish right-wing hand that feeds it. â€œSouth Parkâ€? creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone areÂ harboringÂ a dirty secret: Much of their audience, the 18- to 34-year-old demographic, overlaps with a certain young, male, white slice of President Donald Trumpâ€™s base. You know, the onesÂ who troll liberals online and proudly rock MAGA hats in public.
The leader of the free world took to Twitter Sunday morning to lash out at his political rival and the leader of North Korea. President Donald Trump sent out a series of tweets that will surely delight his base who have grown wary in recent days. The president first provided the country an update on its imminent nuclear war with North Korea. He referred to Kim Jong-un as “Rocket Man” and inexplicably mentioned “long gas lines” forming in the hermit kingdom.
The two leaders of the American left have shown no signs of coalescing after the disastrous 2016 elections. On “Meet the Press” Sunday morning, Sen. Bernie Sanders responded Hillary Clinton’s criticism that he failed to bring his supporters to the polls. Host Chuck Todd asked Sanders to react to Clinton’s recent book tour, in which she has taken shots at the Independent senator. Sanders scoffed at the question, saying that he did not agree with Clinton’s scrutiny.
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".
