Chances are, you knew who Bill O'Reilly was even if you've never turned on Fox News. This week, Fox News fired the face that has symbolized the cable network for decades, after O'Reilly fielded allegations of sexual harassment and the network faced mass abandonment of his show by advertisers. But experts say don't expect Fox to lose much of the momentum it's enjoyed since the beginning of the U.S. presidential election campaign, when it comes to either ratings or cultural importance.
In the days before travelling to Dublin to compete in what will be her last World Irish Dancing Championship, Michaela Hinds admits she's nervous. "When you go back to defend a title, I find it a lot more stressful than winning the first time because everyone's expecting so much from you already, and you have to give that much more than you have in the previous years to keep standing out from everyone else," the 21-year-old Brampton, Ont., native said in a phone interview with CBC News.
Its promotional posters confidently called it "Broadway-bound," but Sousaztka, the musical that was supposed to serve as the comeback vehicle for disgraced theatre producer Garth Drabinsky, may have more than a few roadblocks on its journey to the Great White Way. With poor reviews and lukewarm ticket sales, the show is not exactly a shoo-in to make Broadway. "If I were a betting man, I would probably not bet on it going to Broadway," says Alan Henry, senior editor of BroadwayWorld.com.
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".
