Finding the right comedy special on Netflix all depends on your mood. Do you want dark? Political? Mainstream? Jeff Dunham? In the past few years, Netflix has stepped into the standup market with its own original comedy specials, but it’s still home to dozens of must-see classics and more contemporary offerings to fit any mood. If you need a quick laugh, start here.
One of the two men convicted of murder, as depicted on Netflix‘s documentary series Making a Murderer, has had his conviction overturned. On Thursday the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed the August ruling of U.S. Magistrate Judge William Duffin, who ruled that the confession used to convict Brendan Dassey in the murder of Teresa Halbach was obtained illegally. Making a Murderer sparked a great deal of debate when it debuted on the streaming platform in December 2015.
Four days after Bill Cosby’s mistrial, his spokespeople shared on Good Morning Alabama that the comedian wants to get into teaching about a topic he’s familiar with: How to avoid being accused of sexual assault. According to Andrew Wyatt and Ebonee Benson, the 79-year-old wants to host a series of town hall-type talks aimed at young people. The tour is slated to kick off in July and is not focused on survivors.
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".
