Antes que las primeras ráfagas del huracán Irma se acercaran a la Florida, casi cuatro docenas de periodistas del Miami Herald y el Nuevo Herald ya estaban listos en la Redacción, a la que habían llegado con sus almohadas, frazadas y provisiones suficientes para las próximas 48 horas. Docenas de otros periodistas se dirigieron a todas partes del sur de la Florida, la Costa del Golfo del estado, los Cayos y el Caribe, las comunidades que estaban en la posible trayectoria de Irma.
Before the first gusts from Hurricane Irma approached, nearly four dozen journalists from the Miami Herald and el Nuevo Herald settled into the newsroom — toting enough provisions for the next 48 hours, blankets and pillows in tow. Dozens more fanned out across South Florida, the West Coast, the Keys and the Caribbean, the communities on Irma’s projected path.
The Storm Lake Times, a 3,000-circulation newspaper in Iowa, wrote editorials challenging the state’s powerful agricultural interests that were secretly funding a government defense against an environmental lawsuit. In the heart of the country’s opioid crisis, the Charleston Gazette-Mail in West Virginia exposed how drug wholesalers flooded the state with 780 million hydrocodone and oxycodone pills over six year, the same time frame where 1,728 people overdosed on the painkillers.
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".
