On Tuesday, WFAN sports-talk host Mike Francesa was fielding calls when Benny from Nyack called to talk about Game 4 of the ALCS between the Houston Astros and the New York Yankees. After paying Francesa a compliment and expressing sadness that the host would be leaving WFAN in December, Benny said this, which was caught by Bob’s Blitz:“I was at the game last night, incredible atmosphere, I'm still sick, the weather was cold.
No team in the NFL has done more outreach to the LGBT community than the New England Patriots. On the flip side, there are few teams that have done less than the Atlanta Falcons. Yet one man — Falcons assistant general manager Scott Pioli — has been a powerful link between the two. This year Pioli’s quiet support of the LGBT community has come out with the revelations by former NFL player Ryan O’Callaghan and current San Francisco 49ers coach Katie Sowers that they are each gay.
Esera Tuaolo, the openly gay former NFL player who is competing on this season’s ‘The Voice,’ cleared his second big hurdle on the show, winning his matchup Tuesday night in The Battles. “Vocally Esera really sang out and took possession of that song,” team coach Blake Shelton said of the performance. Tuaolo now moves onto The Knockouts round. Sadly, the producers opted to make Tuaolo’s performance The Battles part of a montage, so the public caught only a few seconds of it.
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".
