When House of Cards premiered its fifth season back on May 31, no one was quite sure what we were in for. Frank Underwood’s (Kevin Spacey) ascent to power was complete, and while his chances of remaining in the Oval Office for very long weren’t stellar, it was hard to imagine that he wouldn’t somehow claw himself out of his self-dug holes as he’d done on so many previous occasions and still manage to come out on top.
Between Bette and Tina’s dysfunctional and disloyal marriage, Shane’s insistence on bedding anything that moved, Alice’s bunny-boiler tendencies, Dana’s untimely death, and Jenny’s complete insanity, it was often hard not to cringe slightly while watching The L Word—if not outright scream at the TV.
Good TV has never been easier to find, but it’s still sometimes nice to enjoy a series you know you really shouldn’t. Syfy’s new supernatural series Wynonna Earp isn’t just a guilty pleasure—it goes above and beyond into “so intentionally bad it’s good” territory, like no other series on television right now. The drama, based on the comic-book series of the same name by Beau Smith, is ridiculous even in premise.
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".
