Brian Keith Terrell maintained his innocence until the end. It was a painful conclusion that may have been unconstitutional, he sought to argue. Convicted in 1992 of killing 70-year-old John Watson of Covington, Georgia, Terrell appealed and lost, then challenged Georgia’s secrecy law which shields the source of drugs used in executions.
COLUMBIA – In asking a federal judge not to dismiss County Administrator Joe Kernell and Greenville County from her lawsuit against Greenville County Sheriff Will Lewis, attorneys for Savanah Nabors allege Kernell witnessed inappropriate conduct by Lewis and failed to stop it or protect Nabors. Nabors, a former assistant to Lewis, filed the lawsuit against Kernell and Lewis on Oct. 16, and she alleges Lewis sexually assaulted her on an overnight business trip to Charlotte last year.
COLUMBIA — In the wake of a Texas church shooting last November that left 26 dead, an Upstate lawmaker wants to allow concealed weapon holders permission to bring their guns to certain churches as long as they have the blessing of their pastors. Last month, South Carolina Sen. Richard Cash, an Anderson County Republican, drafted a bill to allow guns inside of churches that meet in schools. Cash said he got the idea from a member of a local security team at an Anderson County church.
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".
