The Arizona Republic and four other media outlets have filed a special action in the Arizona Court of Appeals to protest a Maricopa County Superior Court judge's order barring publication or airing of a prosecutor's name or image in coverage of a high-profile murder case. On Nov. 6, Judge Erin Otis ordered that the media neither photograph nor even mention the name of the lead prosecutor, a longtime deputy county attorney.
It took three different juries to send Shawn Lynch to death row for his conviction in a grisly 2001 Scottsdale murder. And though the Arizona Supreme Court upheld his death sentence despite multiple allegations of prosecutorial misconduct, the U.S. Supreme Court threw it out because the court did not inform the jury that Lynch would never be eligible for release on parole. Parole had been abolished in Arizona in 1993.
When police came to the little house in southwest Phoenix in July 2011, they found a ten-year-old girl on her back on a towel in the living room. Her clothes were wet, her hair matted, her fingernails and ankles turning purple, her skin yellow, and her lips were blue and pulling away from her teeth. What also struck the officer was how her hands were raised to her shoulders and frozen in claws. And though a woman was performing CPR on the girl, the officer was pretty sure she was already dead.
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".
