Campaign filing reports released on Tuesday showed that Gov. Andrew Cuomo raised more than $5 million during the past six months for his re-election campaign, with $25 million in cash on hand. But he also faced some bad news – a new Siena College poll showed that recent MTA issues have led to his favorability ratings taking a dive (off a bridge with LED lights, perhaps).
C&S: You and Rep. Chris Collins proposed an amendment included in the House and Senate health care bills that would shift Medicaid costs for counties outside of New York City to the state. Now that the Senate has failed to pass its health care bill, and a partial repeal of the Affordable Care Act seems unlikely, how will you ensure that the provisions in the Faso-Collins amendment are enacted? JF: Our amendment is vitally important for property taxpayers throughout New York state.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and City Comptroller Scott Stringer endorsed each other for re-election this week, but their contentious relationship has been defined by high school-style insults for four years. The statement announcing their mutual endorsement tries to smooth over any differences, but we’ve annotated their chummy press release to remind you of what Stringer and de Blasio really think – or thought a few months ago.
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".
