“Yeah, we’re still friends. Look, I said what I said…I didn’t think what she said was appropriate. I wish her the best and I hope she bounces back and is back on the road. She’s incredibly funny, and a lot of people love her.” – Anderson Cooper tells Andy Cohen about the status of his friendship with Kathy Griffin. It’s over – our great national tragedy is coming to a close. Kathy Griffin is back. Well, not back as in working. But back as in ready to work. “I am no longer under federal investigation.
“Actually I had to lose 20-30 pounds for the movie because nobody was that big in the ’60s,” Colt Prattes talks about preparing for ABC’s version of Dirty Dancing. Three guesses where those 20-30 pounds ended up. Let’s call this a tale of two shows: The Bodyguard and Jersey Boys. LA recently played host to touring companies of both shows. The Bodyguard is, of course, based on the Whitney Houston film of 1992. Alas, the stage adaptation is short on dialogue – or plot.
"If he took a dump on his desk, you would defend it. "Anderson Cooper chastises Jeffrey Lord after the political commentator once again defended Donald Trumpthis time, in light of the Russian inquiry. Coop later apologized for the statement: "I regret the crude sentence I spoke earlier tonight and followed it up by apologizing on air. It was unprofessional. I am genuinely sorry." Still, it was great TVand, of course, we'll run it on our website. "If he took a dump on his desk, you would defend it.
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".
