Speaker Paul Ryan’s aides dismissed a report by Politico Thursday afternoon that the Wisconsin Republican plans to retire following the 2018 midterm elections. “Speaker Ryan is fully committed to advancing a bold conservative agenda in 2018 and protecting the majority,” AshLee Strong, Ryan’s spokesperson, wrote on Twitter. Politico cited interviews with three dozen people who know the lawmaker, all of whom believed that he would resign in the coming year.
A watered-down version of the Republican tax reform plan unfurled by the Senate Finance Committee Thursday afternoon made several, significant changes to an earlier plan released by House Republicans, but Senate leaders and White House officials remained stoic that the bill would still provide the long-awaited tax system overhaul. “It’s apparent that this country is lagging behind a lot of other countries,” Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) said during a press conference.
President Donald Trump made a public pitch on Saturday to Saudi Arabia, asking the oil-rich country to start selling shares of Saudi Aramco, its state-owned oil company, on the New York Stock Exchange when the company goes public in the second half of 2018. “Would very much appreciate Saudi Arabia doing their IPO of Aramco with the New York Stock Exchange,” the president wrote in a Tweet.
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".
