Cambodia’s Supreme Court ruled to dissolve the main opposition party Thursday, effectively turning the country into the world’s newest one-party state and cementing its long-serving leader Hun Sen’s grip on power. Prime Minister Hun Sen’s government filed the suit to ban the Cambodia National Rescue Party after police arrested its chief figure, Kem Sokha, in Phnom Penh on Sept. 3 and charged him with treason.
HANOI—Vietnamese singer Do Nguyen Mai Khoi came face to face with the reach of her country’s security forces after she met with President Barack Obama in Hanoi in May last year. Ms. Mai Khoi was among several dissidents who were invited to meet with Mr. Obama during his visit. She had recently tried but failed to make the list of independent candidates for the country’s legislature, which does little to challenge the ruling Communist Party....
BANGKOK—For decades, 85-year-old Sulak Sivaraksa has managed to avoid being jailed for offending Thailand’s monarchy. The country’s best-known historian has been charged with the offense more often than any one else for his biting commentaries. The late King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s aides sometimes worked behind the scenes to get the cases dropped, say people familiar with the situation. Now,...
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".
