A former California sheriff’s deputy, who stole marijuana seized during raids, has now issued a public apology, in which he claimed his actions were the result of ‘Satan’ playing games with him. “I’m sorry to everybody – to my family, my friends, to the community, the sheriff’s department, and everybody else,” Logan August, 30, said in a nearly 7 minute YouTube video posted earlier this month.
An Ohio father is accused of child neglect after authorities say he went on a drunken rampage at a Walt Disney World resort while his young son suffered first-degree burns from the sun. On May 14, Brian Keith Olmstead allegedly used his child’s stroller to push through crowds at Disney’s Art of Animation resort. As he plowed through, he allegedly shouted racial slurs, WKMG reported, sourcing an arrest affidavit. The resort said they received 11 complaints about Olmstead in just 4 hours.
An investigation is underway after U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at Newark Airport claim to have been subjected to sexually abusive hazing by their superiors, which included being duct-taped to a “rape table.” Three officers with the agency’s Passenger Enforcement Roving Team have recently come forward to speak on the alleged hazing rituals, which were carried out in an isolated room in Terminal C.

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".
