San Juan Capistrano, Calif. Nine-term Rep. Darrell Issa spent his four years as head of the House Oversight Committee tormenting the Obama administration. Liberals aim to spend the next two years reciprocating. Mr. Issa was barely re-elected last year, winning by fewer than 1,700 votes, and Democrats have made him a top target of their campaign to reclaim a House majority in 2018. On Saturday hundreds of protesters—many in...
Chris Christie earned Republican acclaim in 2009 when he won the governorship of blue New Jersey and ousted Democratic incumbent Jon Corzine. Mr. Christie, a former federal prosecutor, campaigned on a list of 88 ways he would fix the Garden State, from overhauling public-worker pension plans, to eliminating political patronage jobs, to cutting income taxes across the board.
The Second City is strapped with a $30 billion unfunded liability for public worker and teacher pensions. This year, Mayor Rahm Emanuel must scrape together $1.1 billion, nearly a third of the city’s $3.5 billion general budget, to make a balloon payment to the city’s pension funds. Separately, the city’s schools face a $1.1 billion deficit driven by a $634 million pension bill. This all has created a quandary for Mr. Emanuel. Investors appear unlikely to finance worker pensions.
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".
