Documents obtained by I9 are raising new questions about why it took so long for prosecutors to release a wrongly accused man from the Linn County Jail. The man's attorney says he first got a photo proving his client's innocence in September but didn't give it to prosecutors for almost a month. Joseph McBride was charged with taking part in a robbery at a Cedar Rapids apartment around New Year's Day. Police arrested him at his home in Arizona in August and brought him to Linn County.
You may have seen a new TV commercial that is calling for the impeachment of President Trump. I9 looked into the claims made in the ad and then had the fact checking team, made up of partners from TV9 and the Gazette, grade them. Trump is “accused of obstructing justice at the FBI and of violating the constitution by taking money from foreign governments and threatening to shut down news organizations.”Source: 1-minute television ad by billionaire Tom Steyer now airing in Iowa and New Hampshire.
Joseph McBride, an innocent man from Arizona who spent two months in jail, is questioning why it took the Linn County attorney's off so long dismiss the case against him so he could be released. Authorities had accused McBride of taking part in a robbery at an apartment complex in Cedar Rapids around New Year's Day. McBride says law officers arrested him in Arizona on August 24th and then transported him to Cedar Rapids where he faced a charge of first degree robbery.
After an I9 investigation found @CRSCHOOLS frequently placed students in seclusion and may not be following federal reporting requirements for them, the Iowa Department of Ed has announced plans to launch their own investigation. https://t.co/wuRUo4KmXa

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".
