This week, Crain’s published an important look at the sexual harassment scandal in New York by reporter Cara Eisenpress, who looked well beyond the high-profile cases involving Hollywood and media figures. It suggests that this scandal is only just beginning and will spread to many other sectors of the city’s economy. The story in part came out of work I did for my class at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism on covering the city economy, markets and companies.
So much attention has been devoted to the Republicans' attempt to restrict or eliminate SALT—the state and local tax deduction—that other provisions of their plan that would also have enormous consequences for New York have gotten too little attention. Start with high-end housing. Three provisions of the House plan would substantially change the economics of owning a home in Manhattan and the New York suburbs.
Three quarters of a million. As of October, that is the number of jobs added during what should be called the Bloomberg-de Blasio expansion. Seasonally adjusted numbers released Thursday put city employment at 4,437,500, up nearly 70,000 over the past year. Just as important, the Bloomberg-de Blasio boom has now lasted 96 months. As the table shows, this is clearly the strongest period of economic growth in recent decades. It could soon be the longest.
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".
