Joe Arpaio, welcome to your day of reckoning. Today begins the former Maricopa County sheriff’s trial to determine the penalty for blatantly thumbing his nose at a federal judge. Will he or won’t he be found guilty of criminal contempt of court for ignoring U.S. District Court Judge Murray Snow’s order to stop enforcing federal immigration law? Will he or won’t he be sent to prison? There is little doubt (in my mind, at least) that Arpaio is guilty.
Here are another 7.1 billion reasons why Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake should vote no on the Senate’s health-care plan. Besides the fact that it would devastate the poor, the disabled and the elderly and dramatically drive up insurance costs for people over 60, that is. And besides the fact that the Senate plan doesn’t actually do anything to actually lower the cost of insurance.
Apparently, some celebrities have learned nothing from the career suicide undertaken by comic Kathy Griffin when she posed with the bloodied head of President Donald Trump. Apparently, Johnny Depp, too, thinks the subject of presidential assassination is a real knee slapper. Here’s how the New York Times described Depp’s comments Thursday, at an arts festival in England. “The remark was met with booing and jeering, and he continued: ‘You misunderstand completely.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
