NEXT WITH KYLE CLARK - Say what you will about the political ads on television, at least they weren't paid for by the Russians. We can't say the same about social media advertising. The law is fuzzy on that. But there are Republicans in Congress who think the next time Russians want to help elect Republicans - that voters see that disclosed online. Republican Congressman Mike Coffman of Aurora is one of the sponsors of a bipartisan bill to force disclosure on online political ads.
DENVER - Komen Colorado's Race for the Cure is in financial free fall. This Sunday's race will be 80 percent smaller, and will raise 80 percent less than the race at its peak. It used to be the largest breast cancer fundraising race in America. What once was an annual sea of pink is not yet a trickle, but it is striking. Komen Colorado's 64,000 race participants has fallen to 12,000. $2.3 million in fundraising has dried up to reach a goal of $450,000.
KUSA - Cheyenne Mountain Resort announced Wednesday it would not host the annual conference of a white nationalist group, VDARE, planned for April 2018. VDARE, which advocates for limited immigration while extolling the virtues of the white race, had previously been forced out of a venue in California. The conference at Cheyenne Mountain Resort drew media attention following the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia last weekend that ended with the death of a counter-protestor.
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".
