There has been considerable speculation about potential changes at Time Warner and its subsidiaries if and when AT&T’s takeover of the content behemoth goes through. The merger would make AT&T the country’s largest media company, combining the telecom’s distribution infrastructure with prestigious properties ranging from HBO to TBS to Warner Brothers.
With Steve Bannon on the outs and Breitbart out for blood, can Donald Trump survive whatever pivot he is inelegantly executing? Will he cluster-bomb his Cabinet? Will Jared and Ivanka stand in his way, or go on another long vacation in Vermont? And what role do tech leaders like Mark Zuckerberg and Jack Dorsey have to play in cleaning up Trump’s mess? The Hive’s crack team of reporters discuss these pressing questions, and more, on the latest episode of V.F. Hive on Cheddar.
In Donald Trump’s White House, it turns out that being a “paranoiac” doesn’t mean they’re not out to get you. Less than two days after the president’s new communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, went on a late-night, profanity-laced rant in which he threatened to oust “fucking paranoid schizophrenic” Reince Priebus, the beleaguered chief of staff was unceremoniously ejected from his job and replaced with John Kelly, who had been serving as secretary of homeland security.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
