Charlie Baker had plenty to smile about. Another poll just gave him the highest approval rating of any governor in the country. And he was on the winning side of an urgent mission, taken up by a bipartisan group of governors, to stop repeal of the Affordable Care Act, and of the federal funding that goes with it. But first he cried — or at least choked up at a Tuesday press conference called to announce the departure of Steven Kadish, his chief of staff.
Holding a daughter who can’t see or talk, Bill Engler stood up near the end of a town hall meeting hosted by Senator Elizabeth Warren and called out President Trump for once mocking a disabled reporter. Given his family’s experience, said Engler, Trump’s behavior on the campaign trail “hurt to the core” — and Trump’s refusal to apologize offends him even more. “The real point is, words matter,” Engler said. “Words matter,” agreed Warren.
The now-infamous photo of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and family enjoying a beach closed to the public said a lot about Christie’s hugely inflated sense of entitlement. But it also said something about the current state of health care politics. Christie was holding up the New Jersey state budget — and shutting down state beaches — over his demand that Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield, the state’s largest insurer, put $300 million of its reserves into a state opioid treatment program.
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".
