The number of private psychiatric hospitals in Texas has nearly tripled the past decade, to nearly 70. While some view that as a positive, others claim the growing expansion may lead to growing patient exploitation. They say patients check themselves in voluntarily, yet face troubling roadblocks when attempting to check out. One such situation occurred this past March at Mayhill Hospital in Denton, Texas.
Early this year, Dallas County officials raided and closed several auto salvage businesses south of the city. They were going to crack down on violators of county codes, but something happened. Enforcement suddenly stopped and the yards reopened and county officials won't say why. For decades, the land along Dowdy Ferry Road in southern Dallas County has been home to a nature preserve, a lush, wooded thicket along the Trinity River and the Dallas Hunting and Fishing Club.

“Despotism is the enemy of the people, while a free press is the despot’s enemy and a guardian of democracy.” Sen. Jeff Flake, referring to Trump’s rapacious assault on the media. Exactly why I left Channel 8 to run for Congress. #NewLeaderShipp
Two years ago I confronted Pete Sessions over his devotion to the payday loan industry. Today, he and Pres. Trump are again trying to slash consumer protections and deregulate one of the most predatory businesses in America.

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".
