It's a high stakes week for President Trump, with the fate of a Republican repeal and replacement for Obamacare on the line in the Senate. Plus, the Supreme Court weighed in on the travel ban. ARI SHAPIRO, HOST: The Supreme Court's announcement that it would take up the travel ban is one thing that makes this a big week for President Trump - another, Senate Republicans' effort to pass a replacement to the Affordable Care Act or Obamacare by July Fourth.
Two huge issues loom over Capitol Hill and the rest of the country: the Republican-engineered overhaul of the health care system and the Russian campaign to influence the last election. LULU GARCIA-NAVARRO, HOST: And where to begin? Health care, where there may be a vote next week on a Senate version of the bill to replace the Affordable Care Act, or the ongoing Russia investigation? Well, let's do both. And joining us now to do just that is NPR political correspondent Mara Liasson. Hey, Mara.
It was President Trump's fifth campaign rally since he was inaugurated in January. The frequent return to the campaign trail is a huge deviation from past presidents. DAVID GREENE, HOST: People in Iowa know the political calendar better than anyone. They know when in the election cycle presidents and presidential hopefuls come knocking. This is not typically one of those times. But there was President Trump last night in Cedar Rapids for a rally that felt like a throwback to 2016.
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".
