The U.S. Justice Department doesn’t have to say whether there were any communications between the White House and Attorney General Jeff Sessions about AT&T Inc.’s proposed acquisition of Time Warner Inc., a judge ruled. The decision is a loss for AT&T, which has suggested that Trump’s animus toward Time Warner’s CNN may have been behind the Justice Department’s decision last year to oppose the proposed $85 billion takeover.
Anthony Scaramucci’s agreement to sell his stake in SkyBridge Capital to China’s HNA Group Co. is finally inching forward as a U.S. national security review begins after months of delays over questions about the Chinese firm’s ownership, according to a person familiar with the matter. The panel that reviews foreign takeovers of U.S. businesses has accepted the sale for review, said the person, who declined to be named because the matter is confidential.
Long before federal antitrust officials sued to stop AT&T Inc.’s takeover of Time Warner Inc., their ultimate boss -- the president -- weighed in. While a candidate, Donald Trump said his administration wouldn’t approve an AT&T-Time Warner marriage because that would put "too much concentration of power in the hands of too few." As president, he’s kept up a running barrage of complaints and insults directed at Time Warner’s cable news network, CNN.
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".
