Chicagoans may have become almost as desensitized to President Donald Trump bashing their city’s violence problem and leadership over the last couple of years as they have to the violence itself. But there was a time when Trump had only nice things to say about Chicago: way, way back in the 1980s and 1990s, when the homicide rate was, er, almost as high or higher than the 762 people killed in 2016. “Chicago is a first-class, first-rung, first-rate city.
John Canning Jr. is one of Chicago’s biggest philanthropists — and a major supporter of Catholic nonprofits. But that didn’t stop Cardinal Francis George from giving the private equity investor an irreverent nickname, Canning revealed to laughter at a City Club of Chicago luncheon filled with business and civic leaders this week. “I’m not a Catholic, so the former cardinal called me ‘The Heathen,’” said Canning, a Methodist.
The military coup that led to the resignation as president of Zimbabwean strongman Robert Mugabe made international headlines Tuesday. But the spectacle of tanks on the streets of Harare could have been avoided if meddling “deep state” feds in the U.S. Justice Department hadn’t derailed a South Side vegetarian restaurant owner’s plan.
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".
