Truth Needle: Gun-rights ad misrepresents law enforcement
Emboldened by their new one-vote majority in the state Senate, Democrats are pushing forward on gun regulations in the Washington Legislature, such as bans on bump-stocks and high-capacity magazines. But with a closely divided Legislature, it’s easier said than done. OLYMPIA — Ann-Marie Parsons’ daughter Carrie was killed along with 57 others in last fall’s Las Vegas shooting from bullets fired by a rifle modified with a bump stock.
Gov. Jay Inslee Tuesday is scheduled to unveil his proposed carbon tax and give his State of the State speech to lawmakers gathered in Olympia. OLYMPIA — Gov. Jay Inslee hopes 2018 is — finally — the year for his carbon-pollution legislation. Spurred by Democratic majorities in the Washington Legislature, Inslee Tuesday morning was set to unveil his latest proposal to tax carbon.
Gov. Jay Inslee will unveil the details of his latest carbon-reduction plan on Tuesday. This proposal to the Legislature would tax carbon and use some of the revenue to help fund schools. OLYMPIA — On Tuesday, Gov. Jay Inslee is expected to unveil the fine print of his latest plan to reduce carbon pollution in Washington. The governor’s yearslong push for climate-change legislation has met resistance in the state Legislature — which begins its 2018 session Monday — and in the courts.
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".
