HUD Secretary Ben Carson blamed the media Monday for “trying to stir up controversy” over the president’s remarks regarding the Charlottesville violence, saying we should not “get caught up in these little squabbles.”In an appearance in Louisiana, Carson downplayed the issue, saying: “We’re spending so much time fighting each other when we have real enemies in this world who are acquiring the means to destroy us.
Evacuation and shelter plans were lacking and communication between airport officials and law enforcement was limited, according to an outside review released Tuesday of the January shooting at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. The 82-page report said that the response to the shooting was “disjointed, misinformed and conflicting” due to a lack of information and control.
Taxpayers paid nearly $47 million more than necessary to replace 15 Broward elementary school cafeterias, according to a scathing new audit that says the School Board and administrators sidestepped state laws when awarding the contracts to six construction companies. In one project, at Margate Elementary School, school district auditors say they found indicators of potential fraud when the $5.6 million contract went to a Pompano Beach firm, the only company to bid.
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".
