ST. LOUIS – Teachers are required by law to report suspected abuse. But what if it’s a teacher accused of hurting a child? Our Fox Files investigation found evidence the schools keep outside investigators away. Mom Tiara McCorkle played audio from the day her daughter first talked about it. McCorkle heard her daughter crying to her sister about a teacher at Dunbar Elementary's pre-school program. “(I was) heartbroken and I was like, ‘I need to record this,’” McCorkle said.
SWANSEA, IL – The St. Clair County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office awaits toxicology results while considering criminal charges against August Busch IV. Swansea police say Busch appeared intoxicated when they stopped him from flying off in his chopper. A local attorney says Busch could be under the microscope for much more than just attempting to fly under the influence. Busch has been in the news for decades, for much more than what’s tied to his family’s former Budweiser beer empire.
ST. LOUIS – Large pieces of metal are falling from the sky. One St. Louis woman wouldn’t have believed it until a metal plate came crashing through her car from an overhead train track. It looked like an isolated incident, but our Fox Files investigation found otherwise. Millions of tons of force fly by on our rails every day. You can see the strain it puts on the tracks, from the pulled spikes to thrown plates.
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".
