Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or

searching Obama AND Romney or Obama +Romney.
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

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

Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
