Count White House budget director Mick Mulvaney among those who were stunned by President Trump's Oval Office debt ceiling deal last week with Democratic congressional leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi. "That was not the outcome that I expected from that meeting," Mulvaney told CBS News Chief White House Correspondent Major Garrett and Political Director Steve Chaggaris on this week's episode of "The Takeout" podcast.
While many congressional Republicans are livid at President Trump's unexpected debt-ceiling deal with Democratic leaders, one key Republican is arguing that this effort at bipartisanship is what Americans want. "I channel the middle of the country where I come from," Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, who hails from Michigan, told "The Takeout" podcast this week. "They're looking at Washington saying, 'Give us some solutions. I don't care how you do it, let's be pragmatic.
As Senate Republicans wrestle with their path forward on repealing Obamacare, the GOP's grassroots is increasing pressure on wavering senators to make sure the law is killed. "Our supporters want repeal of Obamacare," Tea Party Patriots co-founder Jenny Beth Martin told CBS News Chief Political Correspondent Major Garrett and CBS News Political Director Steve Chaggaris on this week's episode of "The Takeout."
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 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
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
