Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates have sent a list of 13 demands to Qatar meant to bring an end to a 3-week diplomatic standoff. One of the demands, according to NPR, is the shutting down of Al Jazeera, the 21-year old news channel that is owned by the government of Qatar. Al Jazeera runs 6 channels, including Al Jazeera English which, in the U.S., can be streamed on YouTube and Facebook.
Miami area stations are being credited with helping find an 11-year-old boy who ran away from home Tuesday. Angel Gort didn’t run away, so much, as we went up, to the roof of his Hialeah home where the TV choppers spotted him after police had been searching for several hours. WPLG’s Sky10, WSVN’s 7SkyForce and WTVJ’s Chopper 6 spotted the boy on his roof. He said he went up there because he didn’t want to go to summer camp.
With today’s White House briefing being audio only, CNN decided to send its sketch artist, Bill Hennessy, to draw the proceedings. As CNN’s Brian Stelter reports:He didn’t have his usual easel, but he stood in the back of the briefing room to document the scene. Hennessy’s sketches aren’t exclusive to CNN; other news outlets may also use them.
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".
