As a candidate for governor, Eric Greitens repeatedly criticized Gov. Jay Nixon’s response to unrest in Ferguson after the 2014 shooting death of an unarmed black teenager by a white police officer. If he’d been in charge, Greitens insisted, things would have been different. “The great tragedy of Ferguson is if we’d had a leader who’d shown up with any kind of command presence and courage and calm and clarity, we could have had peace by the second night,” Greitens told The Star last year.
Drawing a direct link between the United States’ foreign policy and his own longstanding message of economic equality, U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders said Thursday that “the planet will not be secure or peaceful when so few have so much and so many have so little.” “Foreign policy must take into account the outrageous income and wealth inequality that exists globally and in our own country,” Sanders, a Vermont independent, said during a speech at Westminster College.
If you don’t already have tickets for Sen. Bernie Sanders’ speech Thursday at Westminster College in Fulton, Mo., you’re out of luck. The event is sold out. The school does plan to livestream the speech, which will focus on American leadership in a time of global crisis. Sanders, an independent from Vermont, speaks at 11 a.m. He will be delivering the 58th annual John Findley Green Foundation lecture, the same platform in which Winston Churchill delivered his famous “Iron Curtain Speech” in 1946.
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".
