DENVER (CBS4) – The days of equal access to the internet may be over. The FCC is expected to lift its net neutrality mandate in three weeks, giving internet service providers full control over what you see and don’t see on the web. It would be able to weaken signals or block websites it doesn’t like or that can’t pay-to-play. Net neutrality essentially ensures that internet service providers like Comcast, AT&T, and Verizon treat all websites and content equally.
DENVER (CBS4)– Lawmakers say it is time for an overhaul of how sexual misconduct is handled at the state Capitol. Leadership from both parties and both chambers is launching a comprehensive review of its workplace harassment policies and the review will be public. They’re inviting everyone from employment law experts to victims’ advocates to weigh in. The move is in response to accusations leveled against four lawmakers, two Republicans and two Democrats, over the last few weeks.
DENVER (CBS4) – The Office of the Inspector General finds secret wait lists at Veterans Affairs facilities in Denver, Colorado Springs and Golden after a whistleblower comes forward. The Inspector General released a report saying the lists made it impossible to know how many veterans were waiting for care, how long they’d waited and whether they even received care.
Responding to questions about my report on @CynthiaHCoffman being pro-choice. I learned it via a source after my interview. I've asked Coffman's campaign if she wants a correction. Her spokesperson says she does not.#copolitics
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".
