Bethiney Klein thinks a 30-day jail sentence could have saved the lives of her mother, her 27-year-old brother and the man who killed them, her father, Robert Klein. But Robert Klein, who could have been jailed for up to six months for violating a protection-from-abuse order, instead was fined. Days later, he shot and killed his wife, son and himself in Johnstown, about 70 miles east of Pittsburgh. A deeper look: One man, 14 violations: Why can't Pa. protect his victim?
When Amy Edwards left work, she scanned the parking lot, looking for a sign of her husband. On her way home, she watched over hills for smoke, worried that her house would be on fire. When she slept, she kept a baseball bat nearby. Edwards, now a 49-year-old nurse, wrote all that in May 2009 for a York County judge to see. Her estranged husband, Matthew Biondo, was in trouble for violating a protection-from-abuse order — again.
In 2003, U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Christopher E. Cutchall was deployed to Iraq. In his first weeks there, he was was travelling in a convoy when an improvised explosive device detonated. He died Sept. 29, 2003, from injuries at the age of 30. He left behind two young children and a wife, Donna. Other soldiers have told Donna Cutchall that her husband was one of their best leaders. She saw for herself what a great father he was. Christopher had wanted to serve in the military since he was a boy, she 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".
