WALLACE: How has celebrity changed in your life? SMITH: There are always two classes: the rich and the poor. Celebrity came to the people standing in the street, looking at the king passing by. But America didn’t really have any celebrities. Not true ones. They had Washington, Jefferson, and Ben Franklin. But that was different. I think [Charles] Lindbergh was the first real American celebrity. And then movie stars started being made. So people wanted to touch and know these people they idolize.
NEW YORK, United States — Kudos to Andre Agassi and Canon, whose 1991 advertising slogan captured the future of photography better than they could have known: today, image is everything. In our increasingly virtual experience of the world, the mundane scrimmage of our “real” lives seems to have dropped in pre-eminence — even in ontological significance — behind the manicured “reality” of the image we post and project.
MOCK: I’ve been watching the show from the very beginning, and while there’s obviously the beauty component—the eye candy of how you all look—what I’m most attracted to is the connection between you and your siblings. I’m one of five. I understand what it’s like to grow up in a house full of people who are always in your business. I see some semblance of that in all of you.
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".
