White House attorney Ty Cobb says not only did President Trump not collude with Russia to win the 2016 U.S. presidential election, but the term "collusion" is being misused. "Is collusion in the federal code?" CBS News chief White House correspondent Major Garrett asked Cobb Wednesday on "The Takeout" podcast. "Nowhere," Cobb responded.
Just two weeks into the new year and there's no shortage of political news -- a glimpse at the headlines of the past couple of weeks reveals escalating tensions with North Korea, punctuated by the battle of the nuclear buttons. Then, the president won praise this week for inviting reporters to view nearly an hour of negotiations with lawmakers over immigration, in particular, how to address the plight of DREAMERS, immigrants brought to the U.S. as children.
Former Rep. Donna Edwards, D-Maryland, is calling for major changes to the way the House handles sexual abuse allegations, particularly in light of the events that led to the resignation of Rep. John Conyers, D-Michigan, in December. Conyers was forced to resign as an increasing number of women accused him of unwanted sexual advances. He represented the Detroit area for nearly 53 years, and to the end, denied wrongdoing.
More than 80% of Secret Service workforce will continue to work "based on operational mission requirements & legislation that authorizes certain duties to be performed during a lapse in appropriations." One officer told me he can go 2-3 wks w/out check. After that? "I'm hosed."
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".
