We don't call him "Shooter" for nothing: Rep. Don Shooter, R-Yuma, shot off his mouth at a public hearing, revealing news that the director of the Department of Child Safety would have preferred to keep private. “As a side note, Director (Greg) McKay was being heavily recruited by other political subdivisions, and he has decided to stay," Shooter said at a hearing this week where the agency reported strides in reducing its backlog and caseloads to the Joint Legislative Budget Committee.
What's Donald Trump in for with his latest addition to his legal team? According to one former client, the president has a bulldog in attorney John Dowd. "He's a tough guy; he's not scared of anyone," former Gov. Fife Symington said of John Dowd. He should know: Dowd started representing Symington during the governor's first term as federal investigators were looking into his involvement in a failed savings and loan.
Two people were arrested Friday during a downtown Phoenix protest about the Arizona Department of Child Safety. About two dozen people blocked Van Buren Street outside The Arizona Republic offices to air complaints that the agency wrongly takes children. People like Thomas Beil complained his children were taken for alleged "neglect," with no elaboration of the harm they reportedly suffered. DCS removes most children for neglect, but doesn't delineate the various types of neglect.
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".
