The father of a teenager killed in the Florida school shooting hit out at Florida Senator Marco Rubio over his “pathetically weak” comments on gun control. In an emotional exchange at a CNN town hall on Wednesday night, Fred Guttenberg, who lost his daughter Jamie in the February 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, pressed NRA ally Rubio to take action on guns.
Speaker of the House Paul Ryan is among 12 politicians—dubbed the "blood money dozen" —being targeted for receiving donations from the National Rifle Association (NRA). In the wake of the February 14 Florida school shooting, student survivors have joined campaigners to call for a discussion on gun control, with politicians who have received donations from the NRA being called out over the issue.
President Donald Trump appeared to have written down helpful hints on how to be compassionate as he spoke with survivors of the Florida school shooting on Wednesday, with one reminding for him to tell students “I hear you.”Trump met with students and families of victims from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High, Parkland, for a listening session in the wake of the February 14 attack that left 17 people dead and others injured, but appeared to need a reminder about how to interact with them.
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".
