Democrats have been waiting all summer to see if any of Mayor Bill de Blasio's primary opponents would qualify for an official debate sanctioned by the city's campaign finance board. Now, it looks like at least one of those challengers has, meaning NY1 will be hosting a debate in less than two weeks. NY1's Courtney Gross filed the following report. "Tenants will have the same opportunity as landlords to defend their interests," he said.
Mayor Bill de Blasio's 2013 campaign was given a massive boost when the city's largest union endorsed him, but that union hasn't spent a dime on his re-election campaign. NY1's Courtney Gross takes a look at what happened to that relationship when de Blasio became mayor. Local 1199 was way ahead of the game. The city's largest union, representing 200,000 health care workers, was endorsing Bill de Blasio for mayor.
As the mayor looks to his re-election campaign, he is dealing with a controversy over emails with some past contributors to his campaign. NY1's Courtney Gross filed the following report. Last year, Mayor Bill de Blasio said he did not really know two campaign contributors very well. "I met them first around the time of the general election. I hadn't known them previously and really haven't seen them in the past year or more," de Blasio said on April 10, 2016.
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".
