launched in August, 2016, the country has been rocked by one political crisis after the next, and the national election of 2018 ensures that this climate will only intensify. Both the demands, and opportunities, for an independent news organization are greater than ever, and so we are happy to announce a critical addition to our team who will lead our efforts to meet those challenges in the coming year. Leandro Demori is joining our team as The Intercept Brasil’s Executive Editor in January.
de The Intercept Brasil, em agosto de 2016, sucessivas crises políticas sacudiram o país, e a proximidade das eleições de 2018 deve intensificar esse processo. Mais do que nunca, aumentarão as demandas e as oportunidades para uma organização jornalística independente. Assim, temos o prazer de anunciar uma aquisição estratégica que irá comandar nossos esforços para fazer frente aos desafios no ano que se inicia.
we were deeply disturbed by the reports of rape and other abuses by former staff member Morgan Marquis-Boire that were described in detail this past weekend in The Verge. We had no knowledge of any such allegations against him until they surfaced publicly last month, at which time his employment with the company had already ended. (He left The Intercept in 2015, and First Look in September of this year. ) Our organization has no ties whatsoever to him now.
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".
