(CBS) — With a possible financial doomsday just four days away, Illinois lawmakers are working to reach a budget deal in Springfield. As state lawmakers worked in special session to achieve a budget breakthrough, the man who called the special session wasn’t there. Instead, on Monday, Republican Rauner presided over the groundbreaking for a bridge in the Quad Cities. Democrats say those optics reflect a reality: Rauner’s been absent from direct negotiations to break the budget deadlock.
(CBS) – With Illinois just two weeks away from fiscal Armageddon, Gov. Bruce Rauner is calling lawmakers back into session for a last-ditch effort to hammer out a state budget. CBS 2 Political Reporter Derrick Blakley explains why tougher rules now in place for passing anything in Springfield may actually be a blessing in disguise. Republican Rauner took to Facebook demanding lawmakers return to Springfield to face the budget mess.
(CBS) — As U.S. Attorney Jeff Sessions testified before a Senate committee, President Trump campaigned near Chicago to discuss repealing Obamacare. Healthcare and jobs was the president’s theme Tuesday. “Millions of American families, and I mean millions, continue to suffer from Obamacare while congressional Democrats obstruct our efforts to rescue them,” Trump said earlier Tuesday.
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".
