OH the pain of headline writers when someone steals their gag. The story was bra fitters Rigby & Peller losing their royal warrant after its owner wrote a book mentioning her famous clients. The subs went through the motions with the likes of “Palace bust-up”, “Stripped”, and “Royals get knickers in a twist over book”, but the cliche they all wanted to use, Storm in a D-Cup, had already been snapped up by June Kenton, who used it as the title of her book, published last year.
WELL hello there, the first week of television 2018! How different you look to the first week of television 2017. No escapist dramas to lift the January blues, no attempts at highbrow telly to give a comforting sense of a fresh start, and no how-to-lose-weight shows because you’ve eaten your body weight in Celebrations. Ah, hang on. The first week of television 2018 is exactly the same as every other first week.
AS the events in Ridley Scott’s drama show, all the money in the world could not buy the Getty family good fortune. The same ill luck looked like it had transferred to the film itself when its lead, Kevin Spacey, playing J Paul Getty, was accused of sexual harassment and airbrushed out of the picture. What could have been a disaster turns out to be a boon in that Spacey’s replacement, Christopher Plummer, is so outstanding one wonders why he was not chosen for the role in the first place.
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".
