Sen. Bernie Sanders announced what he calls the "first big event" to carry forward his political revolution beyond the presidential campaign. In an email sent Thursday morning, the Vermont senator said he will address at 9 p.m. on Aug. 24 "our national network of volunteers live at more than 2,000 organizing meetings across the country."
Sen. Bernie Sanders said he sees no need to reveal personal financial information required of presidential candidates and due on May 15 because he is no longer running for president. "It doesn't make any sense," Sanders told the Free Press, saying he was under no more obligation to reveal his finances than anyone else not currently a presidential candidate.
The Public Service Board hearing Thursday on the Vermont Gas pipeline project showed board members with a weak grasp of what "public service" is all about. The PSB initially tried to close the hearing, citing concerns about anti-pipeline protesters disrupting the meeting as they had done before.
The Wikileaks email release promises to further rile up supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders at the Democratic National Convention starting Monday in Philadelphia. The information points to party leadership conspiring to derail Sanders' bid for the Democratic nomination, and seems to justify the long-brewing outrage among Bernie partisans over the treatment of their candidate.
The Public Service Board is making a mistake by closing to the public an upcoming hearing on a portion of a Vermont Gas pipeline project running through Hinesburg out of fear that the board would be unable to maintain order with protesters at the meeting.
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
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".
