This week on “The Deuce,” it’s a triumphant day for the porn industry in New York City. The courts have dropped all charges against pornography producers, who are now free to film and sell as much porn as they’d like. Though it’s a relatively tame episode in comparison to last week’s shell-shocking “What Kind of Bad?”, it sets up the next chapter in the Golden Age of Pornography with anticipation. The episode’s title, “Why Me?”, stems from an existential moment that Vinny has with Rudy.
Vinny, Candy and Doreen peer through the looking glass, and we discover how others see them and they see themselves — and it’s not always pretty. “I See Money” is the most honest and poignant episode of “The Deuce” yet. Directed by Alex Hall, the episode shows deep and key conversations where characters only speak to each other through mirror reflections rather than face to face.
There’s no honor among thieves, but there is among prostitutes. The third episode of “The Deuce,” titled “The Principle Is All,” is inspired by the line that a john yells at Lori after he claims she charged him too much ($10 to be exact). But beyond his platitude to justify his nickle-and-diming, the title refers to the principles that the sex workers and pimps follow to live and thrive in their world.
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".
