Let me make one thing clear from the start…I do not know whether former St. Louis police officer Jason Stockley is innocent or guilty of first degree murder in the shooting death of Anthony Lamar Smith. Sure, I’ve seen the dashboard and witness video of the initial confrontation with Smith, the high speed chase that ensued and the four shots fired into Smith’s car by Stockley that killed him. But none of that proves conclusively whether Stockley is guilty or innocent.
Former KMOX producer and St. Louis native David Belleville started a new job at WBBH-TV in Fort Meyers, Florida, last week and right away found himself in the middle of the biggest story in the country: Hurricane Irma. When KMOX’s Mark Reardon spoke to Belleville on Thursday, the path of the hurricane wasn’t projected to have much of an effect on Fort Meyers. But that soon changed.
After former Missouri Senator John Danforth’s column that ran in the Washington Post saying that President Trump is the most divisive president in our history, I had the senator on my show to talk about the column. Several listeners emailed me after the interview and most of them made some of the same points. Here’s a sample:I always find claims that politicians like Danforth and even House Speaker Paul Ryan are RINOs (Republicans in Name Only) rather comical.
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".
