David Cassidy, the shaggy-haired star of The Partridge Family whose teen heartthrob appeal made him one of the most enduring male icons of the ’70s, passed away Tuesday at a Florida hospital following organ failure and a battle with dementia. He was 67. Born in 1950 in New York, Cassidy was the son of performers Evelyn Ward and Jack Cassidy, and though he grew up out of the limelight, he ultimately followed in their footsteps.
Charles Manson, the notorious cult leader whose instigation of the brutal Manson Family murders in the late 1960s profoundly bruised American culture, died on Sunday night of natural causes after a brief period of hospitalization in Kern County, California, according to the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. Manson was 83, and had been imprisoned since April 22, 1971, on a commuted death sentence for the infamous Tate-LaBianca murders of August 1969.
One of the best cultural examinations of the late Charles Manson in recent memory just became its own series. In 2015, the podcast You Must Remember This, which explores “the secret and/or forgotten histories of Hollywood’s first century,” dedicated an entire season to Manson, who died on Sunday.
@EarlGreyTea68 But then tonight someone sent us an (otherwise totally fine) audition submission, and their monologue of choice was...... from the POV of a skeevy pick-up artist bragging about his conquest of a sobbing woman, presented as a comedy. It was deeply unsettling to be sent this.
So @EarlGreyTea68 and I have seen a bit in our attempts to cast our sweet silly rom-com podcast via Backstage, the pinnacle of which, up til tonight, was a dude whose entire demo reel is an extended Nazi joke. (Maybe don't do that.)
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".
