The Left says the world has gone mad and that the Right is to blame. How else do you explain President Donald J Trump? But the myopia of culture war politics cuts both ways. The radical Left, like the radical Right, is so blinded by partisanship that it can’t see the wackadoos and the freaky-deakies in its own ranks. Ladies and gentlemen, I present Chelsea Manning – my nominee for Person of the 21st century. Manning is 29, five-foot-two, blonde with pretty blue eyes.
Go, Boris, go, go, go! It’s impossible for conservatives to read Boris’ take on Brexit and not think: “This is what could’ve been.” It’s what might still be - if Boris puts himself forward for PM. He lays out an intelligent, exciting, coherent alternative to Theresa May's priorities and leadership style. Does it amount to a direct challenge? Who could blame him if it did? For weeks we’ve seen him excluded from frontline politics. Unjustly.
I miss the days when the old were nostalgic and the young looked forward to the future. Now it’s the other way around. According to Ipsos Mori, Britons think life is getting worse and a third of youngsters wish they lived in the time of their parents’ childhood. This is a problem for Theresa May. Labour is back in fashion in part because many people have forgotten what it was like growing up under the red flag. But the Tories shouldn’t try to bribe them over with a bit of socialism.
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".
