President Trump’s new communications director is a tough-talking New Yorker with a hard-charging Wall Street background who will be the administration’s point man in taking on the media, a friend said Friday. “Anthony is a foot soldier in the president’s war on fake news,” GOP operative Arthur Schwartz told The Post about Anthony Scaramucci. Scaramucci’s stock went up with Team Trump after the business mogul forced CNN to retract a story that incorrectly linked him to a Russian investment banker.
The New York State Republican Party has received an eye-popping $500,000 contribution — from the brother of GOP chairman Ed Cox. The donation by venture capitalist Howard Cox accounted more than half the $941,000 taken in by the party over the last six months. It was also the largest single campaign contribution to a state political committee since 2012, when billionaire Mayor Mike Bloomberg sent in a $1 million to state Senate Republicans — who usually did his bidding.
About 75,000 students have applied for free tuition at New York’s public colleges under the new Excelsior Scholarship Program, Gov. Cuomo’s office said Thursday.

Students with family incomes of adjusted gross income of $100,000 or less will qualify this year. The limit will increase to $110,000 next year and $125,000 in 2019.
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".
