ASTORIA, Queens — A food truck owner in Queens was hit with rotten eggs with hateful notes wrapped around them with rubber bands. Farid El-Baghdadi says the rotten eggs were thrown at him as he sat next to his truck. He believes they came from the roof of the building across the street. "A small piece of paper, start to use 'F-U Muslim," he said. "They use the 'F-for Arab. And the first paper is 'Go back to your country." The food truck owner says this has happened three times in the last few weeks.
SOUTH BRONX — In a notice of claim filed Monday, Tyrese Revels of the Bronx says NYPD Detective Daniel Brady and Bronx District Attorney David Slot repeatedly tried to coerce him into lying. Ravels says the men tried to make him falsely accuse Pedro Hernandez of shooting him. Herandez's case has risen to prominence. The honors student spent months on Rikers, determined to prove his innocence. He was released on bail last month.
NEWARK, NJ — Exactly 50 years ago, on a similarly hot night in July, Newark — New Jersey’s largest city — erupted. The beating of a black taxi driver by white police officers pushed an already tense city over the edge. Residents clashed for days with the Newark Police Department. The National Guard even came. Some believe the violence was an inevitable result of the racism and police brutality that was rampant on Newark’s streets.
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".
