Trevor Noah was announced as Jon Stewartâ€™s replacement on The Daily Show in March 2015, but just a few months into his new job, he started to worry producers with predictions that seemed obviously untrue. Specifically, as early as autumn 2015, Noah told executive producer Steve Bodow that he thought Donald Trump might win the presidency. â€œI thought maybe weâ€™re in a little bit of trouble,â€?
Certain as the sun, Dame Judi Dench is back playing a British monarch this fall â€” specifically Queen Victoria in Stephen Frearsâ€™s Victoria and Abdul. As it seems with each passing year, the British national treasure (who would really prefer you stop calling her that) grows closer to Tracey Ullmanâ€™s impression of her. Dench has spent her press tour for the film doing everything possible to seem as fun as possible. In short, sheâ€™s having a great time.
Though it might have seemed like it, Tom Hanksâ€™s SNL skit about the great David S. Pumpkins did not spring fully formed from the minds of Mikey Day and Bobby Moynihan. Instead, as Day has discussed before, they worked their way to the idea slowly â€” from a sketch about a guy dancing, to a Halloween sketch, to David Pumpkins, to David S. Pumpkins.
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".
