After a racist e-mail targeting an African-American nanny, neighbors in Chicago’s Ukrainian Village banded together to show they will not tolerate it. CBS 2’s Audrina Bigos attended what was billed as a “Stand up to Hate Play Date.”It looks just like any other party in the park. “We were expecting 30 to 40 people if we were lucky,” parent Maria Ippolito says.
It sparked national outrage and a call for reorganization in the Chicago Police Department. CBS 2’s Audrina Bigos sat down with McDonald’s family as a demonstration marked the third anniversary of the teen’s death. For the third year in a row, they’re calling this Laquan Day. Like protesters, Pastor Marvin Hunter – McDonald’s great uncle – says the death is not forgotten. He adds that the community is watching as a murder trial ramps up for Jason Van Dyke, who shot McDonald during a 2014 encounter.
(CBS) – Mayor Emanuel wants to spend $95 million on a new training facility on the West Side. Some activist groups are outraged and say that money should be spent on schools, kids, and communities. These Chicago youth are also organizing teach-ins and collective call-ins to aldermen, and they’re canvassing the streets. It’s all to protest a nearly $100 million public safety training academy for police officers, firefighters and medics.
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".
