WASHINGTON — In the hours leading up to the federal government shutdown, a common refrain was heard from both Democrats and Republicans: President Trump, who campaigned as a master negotiator, needed to take the lead and bring both sides together to strike a deal. But by yesterday, after the White House again torpedoed the prospect of a deal to keep the lights on in federal offices, many Democrats and Republicans sang a different tune: The president should stay out of it.
WASHINGTON — The House last night passed a temporary funding measure that would avert a government shutdown on a largely party-line vote, sending the bill to the Senate, where the chances of passage are much slimmer. The 230-197 House vote came after a day of legislative wrangling and confusion as the government neared a Friday night deadline.
WASHINGTON — Republicans have made one thing clear about the looming threat of a government shutdown: They may not agree on how to stop it, but they’re united in their plan to blame Democrats for it. This is despite the fact that, by Republicans’ own admission, members of the GOP are responsible for blowing up a potential deal to fund the government while providing relief to young immigrants who were brought into the country illegally by their parents.
@kkondik The filibuster is not long for this world - not in the deeply partisan, govern-by-crisis political environment of the last decade. Doesn’t matter which party is in charge. Both have been slowly killing the 60-vote threshold for 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 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".
