LISTEN: Why Marvin Booker’s family is alleging a coverup in their son’s deathMarvin Booker died seven years ago this month at the hands of officers at the Denver jail. But serious questions linger about the authenticity of the homicide weapon that the City and County of Denver produced as evidence in one of its most notorious excessive force cases. Tonight, The Colorado Independent is hosting a televised conversation with the Booker family about their lack of closure in the case.
CENTENNIAL, Colo. — Her words slid out like a flagging exhale, leaden and weak. Once spoken, they seeped into the courtroom, thickening the noiseless air with the burden of their truth: Ashley Moser has lost everything. Moser, the prosecution’s final witness, testified from her wheelchair Friday about the extent of her losses from the July 20, 2012, Aurora theater shooting. Mobility, and the dignity it preserves. A child waiting to be born.
“Count one, Jonathan Blunk. Count two, Alexander Boik. Count three, Jesse Childress. Count four, Gordon Cowden. Count five, Jessica Ghawi. Count six, John Larimer. Count seven, Matthew McQuinn. Count eight, Micayla Medek. Count nine, Veronica Moser-Sullivan. Count ten, Alex Sullivan. Count eleven, Alexander Teves. Count twelve, Rebecca Wingo.” — Judge Carlos Samour, reciting the first 12 counts against defendant James Holmes during jury instructions, Tuesday, July 14, 2015.
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".
