O.J. Simpson was a media critic long before Donald Trump fashioned the phrase Fake News. One day, at Buffalo Bills training camp in the 1970s, Simpson slipped a coin in a news box at Niagara University and lifted out every copy of the Courier-Express, then Buffalo’s morning newspaper.
The Canadian History Hall will open on Canada Day in the Canadian Museum of History, where the fingerprints of Douglas Cardinal are everywhere. He is the architect who designed the museum in the 1980s and who designed the hall that has its grand opening Saturday — just in time for Canada’s 150th birthday. The history that the new hall will tell, though, goes back 15,000 years. Cardinal, 83, is a celebrated Canadian architect of Blackfoot ancestry who sees the world always through aboriginal eyes.
Ralph Wilson won a tennis trophy when he was 12. Mary Wilson, his widow, plans to bring it along to a news conference in Detroit on Wednesday. She sees the tinny token as a touchstone for his 95 years. Wilson’s sporting life began in childhood and continued through his ownership of the Buffalo Bills, which led to a fortune that will now mostly be given away, some of it for encouraging kids to play sports, just as he did at their age.
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".
