A screenshot of a video showing a man in a suit rearing back to punch a protester who is being dragged out of the Marriott in Midtown on Thursday. Months after a mob of Turkish security officials beat up a handful of protesters in full view of both Washington D.C.’s police and authoritarian Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan, another group of protesters was assaulted at a Midtown Manhattan hotel during a speech by Erdogan on Thursday afternoon.
Mayor de Blasio, clearly squinting through exhaustion, during his electric car charger announcement on Wednesday. (Ed Reed / Mayoral Photography Office)At a press conference touting a bevy of new electric car charging stations in Gowanus on Wednesday, Mayor Bill de Blasio seemed cranky, confused, and misstated some facts. In other words: the mayor needed a nap.
Discerning and discreet customers never really had to pry their white knuckles off cans of the old, psychosis-inducing recipe of Four Loko that was taken off the market because it was never actually taken off the market: five brave bodegas throughout the East Village still sell it to a satisfied public. But these heady days may be numbered, as the same Local East Village that went all Serpico on our stash last week has awoken the New York State Liquor Authority.
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".
