At one point in the latter stages of Netflix’s fantastic women’s wrestling series GLOW, Ruth Wilder (played by Mad Men’s Alison Brie) goose-steps into the ring wearing an ushanka. She is carrying a boombox, which is playing a Russian tune, but the noise is drowned out by thunderous boos from the audience. “I will neuter your pet dogs, and fill your swimming pools with borscht!” she screams at a predominantly male crowd.
Ed Miliband has begun his week-long stint filling in for Jeremy Vine on his Radio 2 show, and unlike the British voting public during the General Election in 2015, most people seem to agree that he is the right man for the job. In his first show he interviewed Labour MP Chuka Ummuna, chaired a delicate discussion about islamophobia in the wake of the terrorist attack at a Mosque in Finsbury Park, and played Lovefool by the Cardigans (a certified banger).
Perhaps it’s time to put those Doctor Who rumours to bed: Phoebe Waller-Bridge has a new show called Killing Eve in the works, and it has been announced that she has landed Sandra Oh to star in the title role. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the eight-part series is a dramatic thriller from BBC America about a psychopathic killer and the woman charged with hunting her down. Oh will play a bored security services operative who dreams of becoming a spy.
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".
