It is frankly difficult to imagine the Bradley Foundation becoming any more right wing and nakedly political than it already is. As I wrote a month ago, the foundation seems to be thumbing its nose at the prohibition against charitable foundations engaging in political activity while spending heavily to turn “Democratic-leaning blue states into Republican-leaning red states.”But in April there was a bit of a board shake up at the foundation that could have ominous consequences.
Does this qualify as another recantation? At 12:36 a.m., 36 minutes after midnight today, Charlie Sykes announced he was saying “goodbye to Right Wisconsin.” Apparently the whole thing had kept him up late last night. “Since its launch in 2013, Right Wisconsin has been at the epicenter of the conservative movement in Wisconsin,” Sykes writes.
All Washington is agog over what fired FBI Director James Comey’s memos might tell us about President Trump, but Wisconsinite Reince Priebus might be vulnerable as well, as the Daily Beast has reported. Comey “almost certainly wrote a memo about [a] Feb. 15 conversation with Priebus,” the publication notes, and the details of that might show he was trying to head off the Russia investigation, which could rise to obstruction of justice, or at the least be very embarrassing.
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".
