Amid the turmoil of the past year, the once-huge story of multiple rape accusations against television star Bill Cosby had been almost forgotten — until last week, when his trial in an alleged 2004 assault ended in a deadlocked jury and a mistrial. Given the number of accusers, many saw this as a devastating failure of justice, particular for women. “Survivors of sexual assault have to watch every day as the legal system calls them liars and denies their truth,” tweeted fellow actor Lena Dunham.
Another Father's Day has passed, with gifts and tributes and reflections on the role of the modern father. Fatherhood is at a crossroads. Millions of dads are involved in hands-on parenting as never before; millions more are absent or nearly absent from their children's lives. Some argue that fathers should reclaim their traditional roles; others say they should embrace new ones. But there are many ways to be a good dad -- and all kinds of fathers need more social support than they currently get.
Wonder Woman’s box-office dominance is no surprise. The lead character is the most iconic of superheroines, and the movie is hugely enjoyable: entertaining, often moving, visually gorgeous, appealingly fresh.
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".
