Last year, Illinois Rep. Carol Ammons was raring for a fight with the temp industry. “The industry is exploiting Latino workers, black workers, white workers,” the Democratic lawmaker told Reveal from The Center for Investigative Reporting. “The goal now is to expose the exploiter.”After slogging it out in Springfield, Ammons now has something to show for her efforts.

An Iraq War veteran nominated by President Donald Trump to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission once called a military diversity commission “silly” and the idea of women in ground combat “laughable.” Retired Lt. Col. Daniel Gade, who was wounded in action twice and lost his right leg, wrote on a military blog in 2011 that allowing women in combat positions would be “to the gigantic detriment of the warfighters and our national security.” Standards at military schools “WILL be...
Samantha Elauf loves sushi, Netflix and most of all, trendy clothes. When she’s not busy as a Forever 21 store manager in Tulsa, Oklahoma, she tends to her fashion blog. On it, she sports frayed H&M jeans, an Urban Outfitters hoodie, Target shoes, or whatever combination suits her. And in every photo, Elauf, who is Muslim, wears a headscarf to match her outfit. Years ago, Elauf’s hijab and her love of fashion took her on an unlikely journey to the U.S. Supreme Court.
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".
