Leave it to Kelli Ward to see Sen. John McCain’s brain tumor as an opportunity for personal advancement. And she, a doctor. How callous can you be? Ward, who was trounced by McCain in last year’s election is now trying to knock off Sen. Jeff Flake in next year’s election. Because apparently one drubbing by her own party isn’t enough. But now, it seems, Ward has figured a different way to get to Washington. Right over the still alive and kicking body of Sen. McCain.
Arizona Public Service has got to have the biggest set of brass balls around. The state’s largest utility actually tried to convince a judge to stall an investigation into whether it tried to buy itself a set of friendly utility regulars. This, until after those regulators have a chance to vote on the utility’s request to raise its rates. Who knew that audacity was spelled APS?
President Donald Trump is moving to immediately remove what surely must be a scourge from our midst. On Wednesday, Antonio Velasquez was ordered to report to Immigration and Customs Enforcement today for immediate deportation. So what dastardly deeds has he committed to require his removal after decades of living among us illegally? What threat does this Guatemalan pastor pose? Only our esteemed president knows for sure, I suppose.
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".
