The buzz among some City Hall bochincheros is that New York City Office of Management and Budget Director Dean Fuleihan is Mayor Bill de Blasio’s pick to replace First Deputy Mayor Anthony “Tony” Shorris. “That’s if Tony ever gets that ideal private sector job he’s been looking for and leaves,” one bochinchero told B&B. To be clear, there’s no bochinche about the mayor not getting along with Shorris.
The way Anthony Weiner was saying adiós to a select group of amigos and supporters the day before he reported to prison at Federal Medical Center Devens had at least one bochinchero thinking that he may run for office again someday. “In his mind, he’s still a candidate for something down the road. Hey, you never know,” said the insider bochinchero. We checked with two other bochincheros familiar with the mentality and psyche of pols who do prison time.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio chilled on the calls for City Councilman Mark Levine as his fave to be the next speaker as soon as it was clear that his efforts were hurting the well-liked wannabe. “His open support of Mark was hurting him and he stopped,” a bochinchero said. However, according to several bochincheros, the talking on behalf of Mark has now been taken up by none other than City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito.
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".
