Forget what you've been told about accused MAX murderer Jeremy Christian and the tragic events of May 26, 2017: A lot of it has been wrong. That at least was the message underlying Christian's legal defense at a Wednesday bail hearing in which both sides presented evidence in Multnomah Circuit Court. Though it fell well short of a trial, the hearing provided important clues as to how the case is likely to play out.

(PORTLAND TRIBUNE) — Despite the Multnomah County board’s vote last week to finally sell the never-opened Wapato jail, the saga of the longtime political albatross may not be over. Not only does developer Marty Kehoe have until April to close the deal by transferring $10.8 million to the county, but it appears the facility could yet become a homeless shelter and service hub — which was the goal of many of those who opposed last week’s deal.
The Oregon Secretary of State's office plans to fine Multnomah County Commissioner Loretta Smith $250 after investigating a complaint that her staffers were made to work on her campaign events, but says several allegations could not be proven. While the fine is small, it's significant because it comes as Smith is campaigning for another office. Facing county term limits, she has declared that she is running for Portland City Council, though she has not formally filed.
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".
