The same goes for Trump's travel ban, which incited protests across the country. That ultimately fizzled more because of legal incompetence than righteous indignation from the left. Yet, after all those long months, November seems to have validated liberal outrage. Three causes for which liberals have bitterly fought tilted in their favor this month, suggesting that their noisy outrage machine may indeed be able to move the needle.
"Saturday Night Live" demonstrated this week that alumni can be targeted for headlines involving sexual abuse and misconduct. Sen. Al Franken, who spent a total of 15 years on the show as an original cast member, went under the microscope Saturday following accusations of harassment by KABC radio anchor Leeann Tweeden earlier in the week.

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin told “Fox News Sunday” he is OK with the comparisons to a James Bond villain following a photo shoot with his wife and sheets of newly printed money. The internet immediately likened the photos, which went viral, to scenes out of a James Bond movie, as the newly wedded couple clearly enjoyed being surrounded by dollar bills. "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace asked Mnuchin about the photos and the comparisons he and his wife were getting to James Bond villains.
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".
