Litigants in today's showdown over U.S. EPA's landmark Clean Power Plan have spent the past week writing opinion pieces, sending email blasts and hitting the public appearance circuit to vouch for their respective sides. The common message: They're confident they'll win.
Oral arguments tomorrow over the Obama administration's landmark Clean Power Plan are expected to draw hordes of spectators, but that's just a small fraction of the hundreds of groups, states and companies with a stake in the outcome.
Kevin Poloncarz has been talking aloud to himself all summer. It's all part of his preparation for oral arguments over the Obama administration's Clean Power Plan - an embattled rule he is defending on behalf of power companies that support it.
In their ongoing fight to keep the Obama administration's hydraulic fracturing rule from taking effect, states, industry groups and an American Indian tribe are tapping into an arsenal of legal arguments against the regulation.
Dakota Access cannot continue pipeline construction in an area of North Dakota that could contain tribal burial grounds. In a panel decision released tonight, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ordered Dakota Access LLC to freeze work on the contested oil pipeline within 20 miles of Lake Oahe, a dammed section of the Missouri River near the tribe's reservation.
The Army Corps of Engineers will likely spend a number of weeks - not months - considering whether to grant an easement for a portion of the controversial Dakota Access pipeline. The news came in a court hearing today as a federal judge slammed the corps for last week's surprise announcement that it would not immediately grant the easement.
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
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".
