Cave In: How Industry And Inattention Killed Mine Safety Bill
Less than a week after Jim Comey transfixed the nation at a Senate hearing in which he claimed, among other things, that President Trump lied about the circumstances of his firing , another hearing in the same room is set to rock the capital. Though it hasn’t gotten quite as many headlines, the testimony of Attorney General Jeff Sessions today could prove to have even more serious consequences—and contain more damaging revelations.
All eyes will be on the Senate Hart Building’s Room 216 today at 10 a.m. when former FBI Director James Comey testifies about his conversations with President Trump. It’s the climax of a simmering dispute between the two men and the first time that Comey has spoken in public since being unceremoniously fired by the president almost a month ago amid an investigation into possible links between Russia and Trump campaign officials.
For the last few months, the conventional wisdom had it that President Trump’s senior adviser Steve Bannon was on his way out. First, there were reports that his increasing visibility—from the cover of Time magazine to endless memes on social media and those SNL skits depicting him as “President Bannon”—had so enraged his boss that Trump was on the verge of booting the ruddy-faced alt-right nationalist.
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".
