For a premier who has spent most of her time trying to calm the political waters, it may not be the most welcome award: Gladys Berejiklian has been crowned "NSW newsmaker of the year", but in part not for reasons she would have hoped. Ms Berejiklian was nominated as top newsmaker by 27 per cent of 893 Herald readers over rivals including the volatile Sydney property market (18 per cent), disgraced former TV gardener Don Burke (12 per cent) and the $16.8 billion WestConnex tollway (9 per cent).
An escalating dispute over "iconic views" of Sydney Harbour from James Packer's planned $2 billion Crown casino resort at Barangaroo and nearby apartments proposed by developer Lendlease is threatening to boil over into the courts. Crown has permission to build a 71-storey casino, hotel and apartment complex at Barangaroo South, while Lendlease is set to construct three high-rise residential towers on the same site.
Seven and a half years ago a little-known Labor politician, Karyn Paluzzano, found herself gracing the front page of the Herald, courtesy of a stint in the witness box at the Independent Commission Against Corruption. Paluzzano, the member for Penrith, was accused of rorting her staffing entitlements. As it transpired she was also caught lying to ICAC under oath, putting a swift end to her political career and membership of the ALP.
Quite the lead par: "GREENVILLE, S.C. — Year 2 of the Trump presidency began here overnight much like Year 1 had ended: with his alleged ex-mistress smashing people's faces into her bare chest at a strip club between an airport and a cemetery." https://twitter.com/washingtonpost/status/955112978206085120
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".
