The legendary filmmakers talk to GQ about their incredibly ambitions 18-hour documentary and how the war was a failure of human behavior on every level. “The veneer of civilization is very thin.” Those are the words of one veteran interviewed by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick for The Vietnam War, a new 18-hour PBS documentary, attempting to explain what he saw young men doing to each other after they’d been shipped off to fight a war that many didn’t believe was worth dying for.
Take one part hipster rejuvenation, two parts industrial character, and mix well. The result is one authentically cool scene. The bones of Pittsburgh, the iconic buildings from the industrial age, have been through a century of economic ups and downs. Now they're bursting with new places to drink and eat, and we're here to celebrate in true local fashion: by throwing one back.
We went to Seth MacFarlane with a simple question. In this new robust era of musical theater and film—with the roaring successes of newly minted classics like Hamilton and La La Land—what was his favorite show? It seemed like an obvious pairing: The creator of Family Guy, Ted, and this fall's space adventure The Orville, who is himself a Grammy-nominated crooner (his new album In Full Swing drops in September), must be loving this musical moment. Right? Actually, no. He thinks it’s… unremarkable.
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".
