A group of protesters voiced their concern to take down a Confederate flag in Kennesaw. While some argue it honors an era, others say it's offensive and needs to go. The back and forth over what should happen to the flag is only getting started. Reid Jones is a self-proclaimed political activist speaking out against the flag that honors a Confederate-era train conductor. "People don't want to talk about it because they're set in their ways, won't hear the side of education," he says.
A man told CBS46 he was held at gunpoint at a cemetery. His alleged attacker surprised him as he used the graveyard as a shortcut home, and now the victim's concerned this could happen to someone else. The Carrollton man told his story only to CBS46, explaining his usual shortcut home through the cemetery almost became his final resting place. "I wasn't going to look at his face because something in my mind started telling me if I looked at his face, he would probably shoot me," he said.
People living in a metro Atlanta neighborhood are on the lookout for a black bear. It's been roaming through backyards in the River Laurel Community in Suwanee. The concern now, particularly with children living nearby, is what could happen if the animal gets aggressive? "I think he got halfway up and then he must have reached out because I don't see any marks up there," says Jonathan Schaefer. So just how did the bear manage to help himself to a feast meant for the birds?
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".
