Started in The Post's sports department in 1978. Nothing much has changed since then ... well, except for going from typewriters to computers and covering four pro franchises in this market instead of one and flying to games in jets instead of on the backs of pterodactyls. If you have been a loya...

While being approached for an interview request coming off the practice field Thursday, the Miami Dolphins’ No. 1 draft pick stopped short. He searched the field for one of the team’s media relations staffers. He wanted to know if it was allowed to speak to a reporter without prior approval, if it was within the Dolphins’ protocols. No big deal, right?
LONDON, ENGLAND - APRIL 17: Lawrence Okoye poses for photographs during the NFL Media Day at The London Soccerdome on April 17, 2013 in London, England. (Photo by Tom Dulat/Getty Images)Oh, and there’s the natural curiosity of an explorer within Okoye, who could be studying law at Oxford this summer rather than trying to make the Miami Dolphins roster as a defensive tackle. Already he has played rugby at an elite level as a junior and represented England in the 2012 Olympics as a discus thrower.
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".
