It’s almost possible to feel sorry for ESPN lately. Everything it does is cause for outrage. In February, when the network made a staffing change in its 6 p.m. weekday slot, it did not seem like a move that would lead to nationwide controversy and the President of the United States demanding an apology. But here we are. Last Friday, between proclamations on fighting ISIS and immigration policy, President Trump tweeted this:Trump did not mention Jemele Hill, but the implication was clear.
Running back Ray Rice of the Baltimore Ravens during a news conference with his wife Janay at the Ravens training center on May 23 in Owings Mills, Md. Ray Rice was cut from the Baltimore Ravens on Monday afternoon and, at almost the same moment, suspended indefinitely by the National Football League. Both actions came after the gossip website TMZ released video of the star running back knocking his wife unconscious with a punch. Without the video, it seems clear Rice would have kept his job.
“He is somebody that I have always looked up to and admired, and we thought it would be great to have a more diverse set of investors at the table," said Gigster co-founder and CEO Roger Dickey. The company has been in talks with leagues and teams about becoming customers, he said, and Jordan could help with those efforts.
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".
