Oprah Winfrey’s former Oxygen business partner Geraldine Laybourne was the keynote speaker this week at an Alliance for Women in Media lunch, where she revealed that she and Winfrey are not into the new Oxygen. “Before she started her acceptance speech she basically said . . . ‘I want to say how sad I am at what Oxygen has become. It should not be an all-crime network. That is not what Oprah, Marcy [Carsey] and I set out to create and it makes me very, very sad,’ ” a spy told us.
Janet Jackson brought out all her hits at the Brooklyn stop of her “State of the World” Tour for an adoring crowd including Naomi Campbell, Questlove, Alexander Wang, Maxwell, Gabrielle Union and more. “So many hits,” she told the crowd before belting out “When I Think of You.” The singer honored her late brother Michael with “Together Again.” “Miss you, Mike,” she said as she looked skyward.
Sylvester Stallone made it known that he needed more than passed hors d’oeuvres to satisfy his manly appetite when he popped into a Discovery Land Company party at Los Angeles hot spot Doheny Room over the weekend. “He took the passed apps from the server and said, ‘What is with the rabbit food? Although it’s delicious, I need some meat,’” a spy told us. We’re told Stallone mingled at the party for about another 45 minutes before heading next door to iconic Italian-and-steak staple Dan Tana’s.
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".
