NORRISTOWN, Pa.—Every day in court, they were there—the other women who said, like Andrea Constand, they were drugged and sexually assaulted by Bill Cosby. Victoria Valentino always wore her button, saying “We stand in truth.” Lili Bernard always wore white; on the first day she carried in pink gladiolas. Every day they sat in court, listened, and followed all the rules: No food, no water, no ringing phones, no disturbances.
NORRISTOWN, Pa.— A mistrial has been declared in the criminal trial of Bill Cosby, an entertainer so beloved he was dubbed America’s Dad, so powerful his value was estimated at $400 million, and who in recent years has watched his entire empire crumble as dozens of women came forward saying he drugged, then raped them. It was in the case of one of those women that Montgomery County prosecutors brought charges of three counts of aggravated indecent assault.
NORRISTOWN, Pa.—When word came out Thursday night that Bill Cosby spokesman Andrew Wyatt would talk to the media, everyone started running. The camera operators grabbed their gear and hustled, with reporters trailing behind them. They moved like a school of fish; you couldn’t miss it. The microphones quickly collected at the podium beside the main courthouse entrance; a large, formal circle formed; and stragglers had to make due by craning their necks or stealing views from the nearby steps.
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".
