The road to city hall would have been a rocky one for Brandon Micheal Hall, who plays Courtney Rose, an accidental politician on ABC’s “The Mayor,” if he weren’t already a recurring cast member on the quirky TBS sitcom “Search Party.” “The show put me with great actors who are trained, dominant with comedic timing and just being on-screen, and they gave me the room to play and fail and succeed,” said the theater-trained Juilliard grad, who plays Julian, a journalist and ex-boyfriend of Dory...
The surname Clutter may not ring a bell, but it’s seared in literary and cinematic history. The brutal 1959 murders of Herbert and Bonnie Clutter and two of their children, Nancy and Kenyon, were chronicled in Truman Capote’s “In Cold Blood” and a 1967 movie directed by Richard Brooks. For the film’s 50th anniversary, Sundance Channel will air a two-part documentary on the case, “Cold Blooded: The Clutter Family Murders,” by filmmaker Joe Berlinger.
Brooklyn native Jonathan Lung nearly missed his chance to become a “MythBuster.”Lung had set aside an online application to compete on “MythBusters: The Search,” a contest to replace previous hosts Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman on the popular Discovery Channel reality show. He remembered it the day the application was due — as he was moving out of his studio after graduating with a Masters of Fine Arts from New York’s School of Visual Arts.
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".
