Everyone thinks Kid Rock is going to win when he runs for one of Michigan’s seats in the US Senate next year. Everyone. Well, some people. And all this still hangs on him actually running. But there’s been a poll and some quotes, so let’s continue gawping at this whole sorry charade. As previously reported, the musician announced his intention to run for office earlier this month.
• Dan McCarroll is leaving Warner Bros Records in the US, the record company has confirmed in an internal memo. He joined the mini-major as President of WBR in 2013. • The 2017 Festival Congress from the Association Of Independent Festivals will take place in Cardiff on 30-31 Oct with a keynote from Artistic Director and CEO of the Manchester International Festival, John McGrath. Info here. • Vessels have released the video for their collaboration with The Flaming Lips, ‘Deflect The Light’.
Justin Bieber has cancelled the last fourteen dates of his world tour, on account of some “unforeseen circumstances”. As well as a handful of dates in the US and Canada – the first in Dallas this Saturday – this means scrapping the entire Asian leg of the tour. That may at least be some solace to Chinese fans, who recently learned that Bieber was banned from the country due to past “bad behaviour”, so that the Asian tour couldn’t include any shows in China.
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".
