Speaker Nancy Pelosi enters today’s leadership elections at one of the weakest points of her career, forced to stare down a series of challenges to her stewardship of the Caucus and the structure she created. House Democrats are scheduled to gather at 10 a.m. to elect their leaders for the next Congress, one day after they spent hours locked away in an emotional, soul-searching Caucus meeting. The Member session was the first since Democrats lost the majority by a landslide on Nov. 2.
Grenfell Tower is rapidly becoming a symbol for many Londoners of everything that is wrong with their country and their government. The death toll from Wednesday’s inferno is already at 17 and police say it could exceed 100. As Charlotte Ryan reports, anger is palpable. Locals are directing their fury at what they see as an uncaring Conservative government that ignores the poor and failed to deliver on a promise to tighten fire regulations in tower blocks.
The shooting of a top Republican lawmaker on a suburban baseball diamond is the kind of shocking event that normally would galvanize Washington for weeks, even months. It barely lasted a day. Because the day ended, as so many do now, with ever-deepening legal peril for Donald Trump.
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".
