Ex. Governor John Kitzhaber and former First Lady Cylvia Hayes (KGW) (Photo: Rollins, Michael)The U.S. Attorney for Oregon announced on Friday that former Oregon governor John Kitzhaber and his fiancée Cylvia Hayes will not face criminal charges for alleged misuse of public office. In a brief statement, the U.S. Attorney’s office announced it had been investigating Kitzhaber and Hayes for allegedly using their positions for personal benefit.
PORTLAND, Ore. -- Nearly 2 ½ years after he resigned as governor of Oregon, John Kitzhaber on Friday received the news he had predicted all along: he will not face any criminal charges. “It feels very, very good. Very good to be vindicated, very good to be able to reengage in the issues that I care so deeply about,” Kitzhaber told KGW News on Friday afternoon.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Sen. Ron Wyden of Oregon had several testy exchanges during Sessions’ testimony in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday. Wyden opened his five-minute question period by accusing Sessions of dodging questions about Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. “Americans don’t want to hear that answers to relevant questions are privileged and off limits, or that they can’t be provided in public,” Wyden said.
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".
