Al Franken didn’t resign today and I know the reason why! The Minnesota Molester didn’t resign today and he didn’t apologize today. So, I have a conspiracy theory to explain why Senator Al Franken did NOT resign today. Less than two hours ago, at the time of this writing, Franken took to the floor of the U.S. Senate and gave a speech. Every news site out there describes Franken’s statement as a “resignation speech” but it was nothing of the kind.
Ted Wheeler came into office as Mayor of Portland less than a year ago and he’s already turned into a whiner. Case in point, his Twitter war with the U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban development Dr Ben Carson. Wheeler ran for the office he holds promising that he knew how to get the job done. But Dr Carson got on the radio this week and said that government funding is not the only solution to the housing and homeless problems of west coast cities.
The Capital of Israel is Jerusalem, a city with huge significance to Christians, Jews and Muslims. The problem is, Muslims in the countries around Israel refuse to accept that the Jews have a right to live. The Palestinians in particular have promised to “drive the Jews into the sea”. For almost a quarter of a century, our country has had a law on the books to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem. Bill Clinton signed that law when he wasn’t otherwise occupied.
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".
