At this point, the only thing you probably want to know about the education funding fight in Springfield is whether the Illinois House is going to override Gov. Bruce Rauner’s veto and if the schools will get their money. The simple answer is: not yet. The House is scheduled to meet Wednesday, but no action is expected on the veto other than a mostly symbolic gesture by Democrats to show that Rauner’s own proposal has little support, even among Republicans.
James Alex Fields Jr., the 20-year-old Ohio man accused of crashing his car into a crowd of Charlottesville, Virginia, demonstrators, is a hate-filled, racist murderer from what I can tell. But is he a terrorist? A lot of people on both ends of the political spectrum have rushed to say so, among them U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Sessions said Fields’ “evil attack,” which killed one woman and injured others, meets the legal definition of domestic terrorism and is being investigated as such.
Conservative provocateur Ann Coulter gave Gov. Bruce Rauner’s first national television interview a bad review Friday, telling her 1.6 million Twitter followers that Rauner “either is retarded or playing retard.”“His answer to every Q is, “Our system is broken.” Fascinating!” Coulter tweeted during an interview on FOX News Channel by host Bret Baier. Rauner was his normal evasive self, sidestepping Baier’s questions about President Trump, Chicago’s sanctuary city status and Obamacare.
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".
