Top Democrats seem to think they've handed Governor Rauner a choice that could hurt him politically, no matter what he does. This time it involves a bill on his desk to license Illinois gun dealers. Rauner faces a conservative challenger in next week's Republican primary, and he's hinting he will not sign the bill into law -- a position that might help him now but hurt him in the fall. Nearly every day now, Mayor Emanuel or other top Democrats are demanding Gov.
He's won world-wide attention by calling himself the "cannabis candidate" -- and, apparently, by becoming the first politician to place campaign ads on PornHub, an adult video website. But now a Chicago-based journalist reports there may be a much uglier side to Benjamin Wolf. “This is an AR-15 assault rifle. This is the same weapon I carried in Iraq,” Wolf said in an ad while holding an AR-15.
Thirty members of the U.S. House are calling for an investigation into fellow lawmakers sleeping in their offices. They say their colleagues are creating a "hostile work environment" for staffers. One former representative estimated 100 members of the U.S. House convert their Capitol Hill offices each night into studio apartments. “I want you to know I do shower on a daily basis. I do go down to the House gym. And we have a toilet and a sink in our offices,” Rep. Jason Chaffetz said.
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".
