There's been a lot of hand-wringing in the journalism trade press recently about why people are tuning out the news. Popular theories involve our president, Mark Zuckerberg and, of course, the Russians. But I found an uncomfortable alternative explanation at an unlikely venue. During a raucous "Holiday Ordeal" show at Portland's Aladdin Theater at the close of 2017, Storm Large confessed that she finds it hard to follow headlines these days.
It was disappointing to read that the Pamplin family of newspapers' editorial board (which includes The Times, Jan. 4 edition) endorsed Measure 101. Other daily newspapers, including The Oregonian and the Bend Bulletin, have rendered a firm "No on 101" endorsement. They believe Measure 101 taxes are inequitable. However, we appreciate your editorial board pointing out a very salient point. It is indeed unlikely anyone on the Oregon Health Plan loses health care access if voters vote "no" on 101.
Data on race, age, gender can help officers become more aware of their judgment calls As snow swirled outside his cruiser, Portland Police officer Kevin Allen typed a driver's license number into the computer on his dash. Inside the idling rig in front of him, a driver hung his head.
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".
