This week, the critics discuss Steven Spielberg’s The Post, starring Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks as Kay Graham and Ben Bradlee during the Washington Post’s publication of the Pentagon Papers. Does the movie take full advantage of the talent involved, or is it too cheesy? Next, they talk about Netflix’s new series The End of the F***ing World, a British import about a self-identified teenage sociopath. Is this one of the best shows Stephen Metcalf has ever watched?!
This week, the critics discuss Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water, a Cold War thriller/monster movie starring Sally Hawkins as a woman who falls in love with a fishlike creature. How does the unique film stack up against other del Toro masterpieces, like Pan’s Labyrinth and The Devil’s Backbone? Next, the gabbers talk about the Golden Globe Awards, how the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements dominated the night, and the presidential speculation that followed Oprah’s acceptance speech.
I meant to spend this morning writing up a quick wrap-up post for this year’s wonderful Club, maybe something in a lighthearted, goofy mode, like the poem that served as 2015’s final entry. But after watching the Golden Globes on Sunday night, my mood is different—reflective, a little uneasy.
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".
