The bet here is Garden boss James (Guitar Jimmy) Dolan felt no angst over the media fallout surrounding Phil Jackson’s willingness to jettison Kristaps Porzingis if the right deal came along. Dolan could not care less that Jax touched off a heated debate in the Valley of the Stupid, and other media precincts. The back pages expressed screaming outrage. In some quarters the Knicks organization was turned into multiple punchlines on the road to last Thursday’s NBA Draft.
Can Rex Ryan get into trouble in Bristol, Conn. on a Saturday night? The Free World will find out in a few months when Ryan begins spending his Sunday mornings as an analyst in ESPN’s “NFL Countdown” studio. Considering the Ryan brothers’ recent fandango, featuring minor scuffling and drink tossing in a Nashville bar, we wonder if the ESPN Faculty wishes it had put a Saturday night curfew clause in Rex’s contract. You may now be asking how can anyone get in trouble in a sleepy burg like Bristol.
From the ashes of many failed ESPN NBA pregame studio analysts, Paul Pierce has risen. Hear ye, hear ye: After years of unsuccessfully trying to produce an NBA studio show that is not totally unwatchable, the Faculty at Bristol Clown Community College has finally found a mouth with impact, a fearless cat who is likeable as well. All these players-turned-analysts know the game, but Pierce entertains as he analyzes.
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".
