It was 1971. American combat troops had been in Vietnam for six years. More than 50,000 U.S. soldiers had already died. And a military analyst leaked a top-secret study, informally called the Pentagon Papers, that showed the government had lied about U.S. involvement in the conflict. The New York Times broke the story. Richard Nixon’s Justice Department sued to stop them from further publication. The Washington Post, at great risk, then published its own story about the papers.
When anyone asks me about our newsroom’s mission, I have a simple answer: To educate. To inform. To empower. That also was our mission for our ambitious new project, The Wall: Unknown stories. Unintended consequences. Candidate Donald Trump made building a wall along the 2,000-mile U.S.-Mexico border one of his signature campaign promises. President Trump now is asking for money to get started. Congress will decide this fall whether to fund the first $1.6 billion requested for construction.
Reporter Jason Pohl worked his way to the front of the barricades at Second and Monroe streets. Cydney Henderson and Medha Imam were livestreaming video at the same intersection. Rob Schumacher was taking photos in front of the Herberger Theater. President Donald Trump had just finished his downtown Phoenix rally Tuesday night. Anti-Trump protesters and police faced one another across barricades near Second and Monroe, where peaceful protesters had been gathering all day.
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".
