WASHINGTON – President Trump’s rhetoric has altered the dynamic in South Korea regarding fears over a U.S.-North Korea conflict, a former special assistant to President Reagan said Tuesday. Doug Bandow, a senior fellow at the Cato Institute who has visited North Korea twice, said Trump’s talk has worried some of his friends in Seoul, which is about 30 miles from the North Korean border.
WASHINGTON – The normalization of marijuana use in America has weakened the country’s fight against the opioid crisis, a senior drug policy advisor to President Obama said Monday. Kevin Sabet, president of Smart Approaches to Marijuana, who served as Obama’s chief drug policy advisor in the late 2000s, argued that that’s a clear link between alcohol and marijuana and the abuse of other substances, noting that the vast majority of heroin users have also used marijuana.
WASHINGTON – When tax reform discussion begins, a topic sure to get attention is the Low Income Housing Tax Credit program, an $8 billion subsidy program lacking basic oversight that has been criticized as wildly inefficient. According to the Government Accountability Office, of the 58 housing finance authorities that allocate subsidies through the LIHTC program, only seven have been formally audited in the past 30 years.
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".
