In February 1968, CBS’ Walter Cronkite — popular anchorman on one of just three national nightly newscasts that came into America’s living rooms for 30 minutes every night — met a trio of young network reporters for dinner on a 10th-floor rooftop restaurant at the Caravelle Hotel in South Vietnam’s embattled capital of Saigon.
In the hours immediately after Wednesday’s mass shooting in Parkland, Florida, Rosalind Holtzman of Elkins Park was angered to read a report that one of her U.S. senators, Republican Pat Toomey, had taken nearly $80,000 in donations from gun-rights groups in narrowly winning re-election in 2016. It wasn’t the first time that Holtzman, 59, has felt displeasure with Toomey.
To take the uneven pulse of America’s youth politics in this fraught year of 2018, I had to climb an exquisite, dark wood-paneled, curved stairway of contradiction. It was Saturday afternoon at Houston Hall — the University of Pennsylvania’s student center, a Gothic edifice built at the height of one Gilded Age, in 1896, that now offers pizza and a place to hang out for the children of our current Gilded Age.
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".
