His popularity is at historic lows and a majority legislative priority is in jeopardy. But President Donald Trump put on a confident face Monday, praising a proposal that has many calling him hypocritical. Josh Robin filed the following report. The president says he can put out fires. But political flames have only been rising. And the gravest remains Russia. Last week, Donald Trump Jr. admitted taking a meeting with a Russian lawyer and others during the campaign.
As Sheldon Silver savors his freedom, observers of the State Capitol are wondering if his arrest — and that of fellow former leader Dean Skelos, also on corruption charges — changed anything in Albany. The answer, at least in small part, may surprise you. Josh Robin has the report. The day Sheldon Silver was arrested, they locked the Assembly doors. Across the Capitol more than two years later, something similar happened as legislators and Governor Cuomo hashed out a $153 billion budget.
SPECTRUM NEWS VIDEO: The scandal involving Russia is following President Trump to France this week. Before leaving, he said he did not know at the time about a meeting his son and other top aides took during the campaign with a Russian lawyer to get damaging information on Hillary Clinton. And the president's annoyed take on the resulting investigation is seemingly at odds with his own pick to lead the FBI. Our Josh Robin has the latest.
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".
