Rep. Dan Donovan launched his re-election campaign Saturday by taking direct aim at his Republican primary opponent. "He is trying to satisfy his own ambition with smoke and mirrors." "The goal here is to drain the swamp, not add to it." Donovan is facing off against his predecessor, former Rep. Michael Grimm, who resigned in 2015 and then served federal prison time for tax evasion. It's a fact Donovan plans to capitalize on.
The ongoing feud between the city's correction officers union and a jail oversight board kicked into high gear Tuesday when a board member allegedly insulted the union president with an expletive. The clash spilled into a public meeting in Lower Manhattan. NY1 Political Reporter Courtney Gross was there and has the story.
Earlier this year, Mayor Bill de Blasio and his campaign team were cleared in a federal investigation of pay to play politics at city hall. One figure at the center of that investigation was Ross Offinger, the mayor's political fundraiser. Now, NY1 is getting a closer look at how Offinger worked with City Hall. "The fundraising team was working on a lot of things simultaneously. I did not have the time or the interest to get into the mechanics of their work," Mayor Bill de Blasio said in October.
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".
