Pasadena, CA -- The two days of PBS panels at every Television Critics Association tour are often the least attended, which doesn’t mean the turnout is anemic – only that it is not as robust as the broadcast and cable networks. Especially noticeable is the absence of younger TCA members, who tend to clear out when PBS comes in. This was not the case when I joined the TCA way back in 1990 and for many years thereafter. PBS panels were packed back then.
Pasadena, CA -- In yet another example of how perceptions of television, video content and entertainment programming are changing every day, Snapchat on Monday appeared for the first time at a Television Critics Association tour. They were here to educate (a surprising number of) critics as to what Snapchat is and how it is used, provide data on the depth and breadth of its usage and make clear that it, too, deserves the attention of critics and reporters who cover programming.
Pasadena, CA – The Winter 2018 Television Critics Association tour is turning into quite the stream show, with first-class presentations from Hulu, YouTube, Sundance Now, BritBox, Acorn TV and Crackle all merging into the cable days of this marathon event. The only streamers in absentia are CBS All Access (which put on a strong presentation at the Summer 2017 tour and will certainly do so again), Amazon and Netflix.
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".
