North Korean ruler Kim Jong-un engineered the assassination of his half-brother to be so ‘gruesome’ that it would ‘horrify the rest of the world’ and intimidate his adversaries, it was claimed in a new report on Monday. On February 13, Kim Jong-nam was killed by two women who smeared him with what turned out to be VX nerve agent in Kuala Lampur International Airport in Malaysia. He was 45 years old.
Iran's much-touted test launch of a new medium-range ballistic missile last Friday which prompted an angry response from President Donald Trump was a fake, it was reported on Monday. The Iranian government on Friday released video footage of the supposed launch just hours after it displayed what it claimed to be a new type of missile at a military procession in the capital Tehran. But the footage of the launch was more than seven months old, two US officials told Fox News on Monday.
Former Dukes of Hazzard star Tom Wopat’s legal troubles continue to mount. The actor, who pleaded not guilty last month to grabbing the buttocks of a woman during a local production of 42nd Street, is now being accused of poking a 16-year-old girl co-star in her stomach with his finger on the set of the same play, it was reported on Monday. Wopat was arrested in Massachusetts on August 2 by police and charged with indecent assault after he allegedly put his finger between a woman’s butt cheeks.
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".
