Former Fox News host Bill O'Reilly is on something of a publicity tour to promote his new book, Killing England. But he's also interested in settling some scores. In particular, he's been hyping coverage on the conservative news site Newsmax that paints one of his accusers in a negative light. On Sunday, Newsmax reported that a woman who had accused O'Reilly of having acted inappropriately toward her while she worked at Fox News had been arrested in 2015 for making a false felony accusation.
On Tuesday afternoon, the website Mediaite published a video clip showing outtakes from a late August broadcast of Lawrence O’Donnell's MSNBC show, The Last Word With Lawrence O’Donnell. In the video clip, which was seemingly leaked to the publication by someone with access to the network's production process, O'Donnell expresses frustration with the actions of the control room and with a hammering sound that distracts him. "Stop the hammering!" O'Donnell shouts.
The 9 p.m. hour in cable news is shaping up to be the latest closely watched ratings race between Fox News and MSNBC. Starting Monday, Fox News host Sean Hannity will return to his old time slot, and will be matched up against one of his foes, MSNBC star anchor Rachel Maddow. The shift was made possible by the cancellation of Fox News' 5 p.m. program, The Specialists, which made it necessary for current 9 p.m. occupant The Five to move back to its namesake slot.
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".
