Hillary Clinton may have flunked out of the Electoral College, but she remains a big winner when it comes to popular votes. Last Thursdayâ€™s edition of The Rachel Maddow Show, which was devoted to a live one-on-one interview with the former secretary of State, was cableâ€™s most-watched news broadcast of the week, as well as the No. 1 non-sports show on cable. Per Nielsen, the Clinton-centric episode of Maddow notched 2.95 million viewers in its initial telecast, edging out last weekâ€™s No.
Sean Spicerâ€™s Emmy cameo was instantly iconic â€” and immediately controversial. Sunday nightâ€™s sudden appearance by the former White House press secretary prompted laughter and applause inside Los Angelesâ€™ Microsoft Theater, but it also resulted in scorn from left-leaning Twitter and more than a few professional TV critics (including our own Matt Zoller Seitz). Detractors argue Colbert and the TV Academy â€œnormalizedâ€? Spicer by allowing him to poke fun at his White House tenure.
This story originally ran on June 15, 2017. Weâ€™re repubbing it given the networkâ€™s six Emmy wins Sunday night, including Best Drama. Given its current status as one of the foundational networks of the Peak TV era, itâ€™s easy to forget that prior to the premiere of The Shield in 2002, FX was a sleepy little cable backwater known primarily for reruns of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and The X-Files.
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".
