Protesters interrupted former FBI Director James Comey as he gave a convocation speech at Howard University on Friday, chanting "we shall not be moved," "no justice, no peace" and "black lives matter." "Welcome to Howard. I'm honored to be here and I'm looking forward to adult conversations about what is right and what is true," the former FBI director said at the conclusion of his remarks.
The Department of Justice on Friday announced it is boosting its efforts against the prescription drug and opioid epidemic by nearly $60 million. The money will be doled out through federal grants, the National Institute of Justice, drug and treatment courts nationwide, and other grant programs. According to Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who has made fighting drugs a top priority, the money shows that the Trump administration is making the current drug crisis in America "a top priority."
Attorney General Jeff Sessions will appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Oct. 18, the office of Chairman Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, announced Wednesday. The hearing is a routine oversight hearing of the Department of Justice and it's budget proposals. Sessions' staff and Grassley's top people had been working on a date that worked for the attorney general's testimony for a few weeks.
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".
