Former Weather Underground member Judith Clark sued the state Board of Parole Tuesday, saying it had unfairly denied her bid to be released by treating her "as a symbol of crime rather than as an individual." Clark, the getaway driver in a deadly 1981 heist of a Brink's truck, has been widely praised as a model prisoner and ideal candidate for release. Gov. Cuomo granted her clemency in December 2016, making her immediately eligible for parole.
An appeals court upheld a decision Tuesday tossing a Republican commentator's $4 million defamation suit against President Trump, ruling his tweeted insults "were opinion and not fact." A lower court dismissed Cheryl Jacobus's suit in January, ruling she was engaged in a "petty quarrel" with Trump that did not rise to the level of defamation. Trump called her "a real dummy," among other jabs. The Appellate Division First Department unanimously upheld that dismissal in a two-page ruling.
The operator of a crane that collapsed and killed a passerby in Tribeca is suing over a probe that blames him for the catastrophe. Kevin Reilly’s operator’s license was suspended following a city Department of Buildings investigation into the February 2016 accident in which the crane fell on a gusty morning and killed a man on his way to work. The inquiry, released 10 months after the accident, determined Reilly failed to secure the crane the night before and lowered the boom at an improper angle.
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".
