On Wednesday's show, Alex and the panel discussed two GOP Senate candidates who came up short in November. In Indiana, Richard Mourdock is blaming his loss squarely on "media bias" and reporters who are "more interested in defeating conservatives than reporting the news."
A new bill-the Military Justice Improvement Act- would mark the biggest change to the Uniform Code of Military Justice in over three decades by taking the reporting process outside the chain of command and turning it over to military prosecutors. New York Sen.
If President Obama manages to win re-election Tuesday, it could be in spite of the enormous amounts of money pumped into the race by outside groups intent on defeating him. According to an analysis by the Center for Responsive Politics, the top 5 outside conservative groups have spent $416 million to date - more than double the $183 million spent by the top five outside liberal groups.
MATTIS on WH visits (Dec. 29): "I mean, I -- go there, I'm over there a couple of times a week. It goes fine. I say what -- I give my recommendation. No one elected me, but I get a full hearing... So yes, it's going fine."
"It is unclear how Ms. Thompson’s background in serving Mr. Pompeo — she has described her duties with him as “working on issues for the intelligence and Benghazi committees and on Iran, Guantánamo and Asia” — may help her in her new role." https://twitter.com/katierogers/status/951539213291474945
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
