Thatâ€™s the advice Samantha Bee gave all of the women in the comedy industry at the end of her Full Frontal program this week, days after the disturbing revelations of Louis C.K. finally came to light after years of hushed rumors. But you know what really pisses Bee off even more? Just how shitty it is to be a woman in the comedy industry in general. â€œHereâ€™s what itâ€™s been like for me and a lot of the women I know.
Publicly responding to a sexual harassment claim brought forth by former Mad Men writer Katie Gordon last week, Matthew Weiner is denying that he acted inappropriately to her while she was employed by the show. Specifically: He mightâ€™ve been a tough boss, but he never sexually harassed anyone. Participating in a Q&A with Jenji Kohan at Chevalierâ€™s Books on Friday evening, Weiner categorically denied that anything transpired between the two of them. â€œThe allegations are not true,â€?
Lending her voice to the chorus of brave women who are speaking out against sexual harassment and assault in Hollywood, Meryl Streep has revealed two instances in which she was subjected to â€œreal terrorâ€? and â€œreal physical violenceâ€? in her life.

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".
