In recent days, there has been a flurry of activity on the issue of net neutrality. On Tuesday, we learned that 50 Senators have now committed to a bill under the 1996 Congressional Review Act that would block the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) December repeal of net neutrality rules. And, as the New York Times reported this week, more than 20 states and a host of public interest groups have now begun the legal battle to block the FCC’s repeal.
What Does Fire and Fury Tells Us About the Library E-Book Market? On Monday, Michael Wolff, author of the blockbuster book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House appeared on The Last Hour with Lawrence O’Donnell for an interview. At the very end of a rollicking opening segment, O’Donnell asked Wolff a cringe-worthy question: “When will people be able to buy this?” Wolff didn’t have an answer.
The sudden success of Michael Wolff’s Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House has publisher Henry Holt rushing back to press. And while booksellers eagerly await the new printing, overwhelming demand for the book has also put pressure on libraries, many of which were also caught by surprise and are now seeing wait lists for the book that rival all-time bestsellers like Harry Potter and Fifty Shades of Grey.
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".
