Alec Baldwin understands his success performing as President Trump on Saturday Night Live. He's channeling the world's pain directed at the controversial president. A subdued Baldwin said as much backstage at the Emmy awards, showing off his best supporting comedic actor award. Reporters asked Baldwin about the social importance of his Trump portrayal. "I find myself a conduit. People are suffering a great deal. They are confused and in pain," Baldwin said, without cracking a smile.
Harrison Ford has finally addressed the still-shocking revelations that he had a real-life affair with his Star Wars co-star Carrie Fisher. Sort of. Ford has been the missing information link in this story since November, when Fisher told People magazine, while promoting her book, The Princess Diarist, about the "intense" affair the two had 40 years prior — when he was Han Solo and she was Princess Leia in Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope in 1976.
Sandra Bullock is giving in a big way toward relief for Hurricane Harvey victims. The actress, 53, donated $1 million to the American Red Cross for its efforts in devastated regions of Texas, according to People magazine. “I’m just grateful I can do it,” Bullock said.
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".
