The political attack ad starts with the image of a dirty heroin needle. "Heroin destroys lives and threatens our community," the narrator says. “Now Seattle politicians wants safe injection sites around King County.”This attack ad is talking about a pilot program to open two sites in King County, where users can take drugs legally, partly to limit heroin overdoses and to contain used needles. One site is slated for Seattle. The other location is still to be determined.
The Sam Hill mansion on Capitol Hill is the most expensive real estate listing in Seattle. Should the owner have to pay a luxury sales tax? It's one of the big proposals in this year's Seattle mayor's race. This particular mansion was built in the early 1900s for railroad tycoon Sam Hill, who also built the Peace Arch on the Canadian Border, and a full scale replica of Stonehenge out in eastern Washington. The current concrete Seattle mansion has 5 bedrooms, 6 1/2 baths, a wet bar and a wine cellar.
Ed Murray's resignation is sending ripples through the Seattle mayor's race. Cary Moon said at a news conference Tuesday that her opponent, Jenny Durkan, was too late to hold Murray accountable after several men accused him of sexually abusing them. “I came out early asking him to step down. She has only done so today, and I think when the pressure got too high,” Moon said.
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".
