Mackinac Island — Michigan is losing state employees as their peers face prosecution by Attorney General Bill Schuette in a nearly two-year probe of the Flint water crisis, Gov. Rick Snyder said Saturday. Snyder, speaking with reporters at the Mackinac Republican Leadership Conference, defended Michigan Health and Human Services Department Director Nick Lyon and questioned the speed of other cases he said has damaged state employee morale.
Mackinac Island — Macomb County Public Works Commissioner Candice Miller, a former congresswoman who was encouraged to run for governor in 2018, is instead backing Attorney General Bill Schuette for the job. “I think he’s the right guy at the right time for Michigan,” Miller said Saturday at the Mackinac Republican Leadership Conference, where she was wearing a Bill Schuette for governor sticker on the porch of the historic Grand Hotel.
Mackinac Island — U.S. Rep. Fred Upton said Saturday he is continuing to inch toward a decision on running for the U.S. Senate but is not planning making the call this week or next. Upton was among possible, likely or declared Senate candidates jockeying for position – and donor support – at the Mackinac Republican Leadership Conference. “This has been a very important week,” Upton told The Detroit News outside a crowded reception he hosted on the island.
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".
