If you've been following Kylie's reality spinoff, Life of Kylie , this summer, you'll know that she's been vocal about wanting to have children. And if not, then why waste the energy judging a woman that you neither know, nor care about? The Kardashians have always been a lightning rod for controversy. The news that Kim Kardashian West had been the victim of armed robbery in Paris was immediately followed with a slew of conspiracy theories naming all the ways it could have been a hoax.
In fact, many times throughout the 2-hour run time, I had to remind myself that the events pictured had taken place more than 40 years ago. So much of the almost comically sexist dialogue felt like something I had heard recently — on the campaign trail, in the news, on Twitter. Almost half a century later, women are still having to defend their right to share a stage with men, from boardrooms, to political parties, to tennis courts, and beyond.
"I can’t say that I think the landscape has changed all that much. I think that the thing that has changed is that it is in the forefront of people’s minds right now that women have so often had to take seven-year gaps between making badass films to when they get their next gig. It’s become very obvious. Our production company is in the independent space, the lists that we put together are always diverse, from gender to color. That’s just the way that we think.
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".
