The larger point is that support and opposition to marijuana has swung like a pendulum back and forth over a period of many years. It was at first considered a harmless weed with some therapeutic effects, and President George Washington grew a variety of the plant, hemp, on his plantation at Mount Vernon, Va. At the turn of the 20th Century, it was used along the U.S. border with Mexico, where it was widely grown.
But the case of Monica Lewinsky, the 24-year-old former White House intern who has claimed in taped recordings to have conducted a sexual affair with the president, may test those limits like never before. If the allegations are true, the woman—the "girl," her lawyer keeps calling her—was only a few years older than Chelsea Clinton is now when she began a sexual relationship with Clinton.
But three decades ago, Baker, Cannon and Baker aide Tom Griscom came up with a plan. They and their allies in the White House would make it their secret mission to observe Reagan carefully as they assessed whether he ought to be removed from office under the 25th Amendment. They concluded that the president was doing fine, and that the complaining Reagan aides were resentful at being forced out and wanted to discredit their former boss.
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".
