GoFundMe is America's answer to mass shootings and other national tragedies. Within hours of the Nov. 5 shooting that left 26 dead and 20 more injured at a rural church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, GoFundMe campaigns had been established in the names of victims. Two days later, more than $1.2 million had been raised from 17,000 donors. And the money keeps coming in. A week after the shooting, nearly $1.5 million had been raised on 28 different GoFundMe accounts.
Robert "LaVoy" Finicum told police they would have to shoot him. The Arizona rancher and anti-government protester died on the side of a remote Oregon road in 2016. He was shot after he ran a police roadblock, plowed into a snowbank, got out of his truck and advanced on authorities. The Mohave County Board of Supervisors this week voted to rename another remote stretch of road after Finicum, calling him a patriot who died defending his beliefs.
LAS VEGAS — A day after the trial of Cliven Bundy was delayed, a federal judge ordered prosecutors to turn over records about surveillance cameras and armed agents positioned around the Bundy home during the 2014 standoff. U.S. District Court Judge Gloria Navarro said Wednesday the issues raise "sufficient evidence of materiality," meaning the records could be used to challenge some or all of the charges against the defendants.
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".
