At least 14 arrested as counterprotesters clash with police in Portland, Oregon, amid rally by far-right activists. More than 1,000 people descended on the northwestern US city of Portland on Sunday for an "alt-right" rally and a large counterprotest, just nine days after two men were stabbed to death on a train.
Portland riot police forcefully muscled antifascist protesters out of Chapman Square this afternoon as an alt-right rally continued across the street. Citing "criminal activity" among the crowd of at least 500 antifa protesters, Portland police deployed stun grenades to disperse the crowd. Riot cops formed a line to press antifa out of the park, using "flash bangs" when the crowd wouldn't move.
A friend who showed up in court to support the accused murderer, Jeremy Joseph Christian, offered a clue to how Christian came to be shouting anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim slurs on a MAX train last Friday. In an interview with WW correspondent Mike Bivins, the friend, who wouldn't give his full name, said he had known Jeremy Christian, 35, for 15 years and explained Christian's views with reference to his experience in prison. Christian has spent more than half of his adult life in prison.
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".
