After WKYT's five-month investigation into customers of Auto Plaza USA receiving unexpected tax bills, one of the customers we interviewed got their money back. WKYT met Lori Taylor at her home in May. "I immediately thought, they're committing fraud," she told WKYT's Miranda Combs at the time. She showed proof that she had paid a tax bill that was already paid when she bought the vehicle. WKYT uncovered hundreds of similar stories over the next few months.
The Kentucky Attorney General's office has concern that sex trafficking will increase with the amount of people that will be in Hopkinsville for the solar eclipse. "Through no fault of their own, we see increased trafficking, we see increased regional trafficking, and we see people being brought in from the outside," explained Attorney General Andy Beshear.
Brenyo's county is a perfect example of the pain not having a enough paramedics can put on a region. At midnight, Owen County's hospital will close it's doors for good. "We just don't know where this is going to go. And that's a scary place to be," Brenyo told WKYT's Miranda Combs. He said because the hospital is closing, transport times go from an average of 20 minutes to 40 minutes. Add the increased transport time to a skeleton crew and Brenyo said they could have a big problem.
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".
