SCRANTON — A few film buffs have been complaining about a recent half-price promotion at one local theater. The half-off promotion involved the Iron Horse Movie Bistro theater in downtown Scranton and a group of five local radio stations. According to the radio station that offered the promotion, about 20 people learned they’d pay more than full price for half-price certificates. When we brought one man’s complaint to the movie theater’s parent company, the CEO admitted there was a mistake.
SCRANTON — Few things are more annoying than finding a parking ticket tucked under a windshield wiper when you return to your car. No matter where it happens, you will be faced with a fine. But thousands in northeastern and central Pennsylvania are not paying those fines and running up an eye-opening number of tickets.
× Courtright Declares Victory in Bid for Second Term as Scranton Mayor SCRANTON — Scranton Mayor Bill Courtright declared victory just before 10 p.m. Tuesday night. Courtright is the Democratic incumbent seeking a second term. He served three terms on Scranton City Council and was elected Scranton’s Tax Collector in 2009. Courtright easily defeated Jim Mulligan for Scranton Mayor in 2013 and ran unopposed in May’s primary.
@WNEP You’re honest. You put money in the parking meter. You pay a fine when ticketed if the meter expires. But some ignore the meters and tickets and have racked up hundreds of tickets, but are not paying. Newswatch 16 Investigates Tuesday at 6PM https://t.co/VkEZhf3KhB
@DaveSkutnik I don't get why defending Heisman champion @LAMARJACKS0N isn't getting more consideration. He earned Heisman last year, has better numbers this year, and today dismantled my @CuseFootball gang who took down @ClemsonFB last month. And you're right...Mayfield=Bush League.
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".
