The season seven opener finds us in familiar territory with Carrie out on a limb, Saul stubborn as ever and O’Keefe peddling his garbage to an ever more receptive audience. For the most part, it’s tidying up the fallout from season six. The battle lines are drawn and it’s the Keane administration against the world. Less than two months have passed since Carrie was ushered out of the White House and little has changed.
Has victory ever tasted so sour? Professionally, Laure’s crew walked away with a big win. Drissa and Calvi confessed, Jolers died and Moldovan was captured. Personally, however, they are in abject disarray, with Tintin resigning, Laure absconding and Gilou stuck in a hospital car park with only a giant panda for company. Ultimately, it was Mercier stumbling across the baby-trafficking operation that led to his murder.
Actions have consequences in Spiral. For various reasons, Roban, Mayor Mangin and Gilou are humbled this week as past sins come back to haunt them. How they react will define their fortunes as we enter the finishing straight. To a backdrop of riots, the big players move their chess pieces around before the final double bill next week. The unrest in Cléry puts the investigation on pause for a while, which frustrates the hell out of Laure.
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".
