New Year’s Day television programming is historically dedicated to movie marathons, college football, and “whatever won”t make the hangover worse.” But Funny or Die and Amazon Prime are betting that they can make their own event out of one of the true hallmarks of New Year’s programming, the Rose Parade, which kicks off the Rose Bowl college football game in Pasadena.
Eight women who either worked with or aspired to work with broadcast journalist Charlie Rose have accused him of making unwanted sexual advances, in new reporting from Irin Carmon and Amy Brittain at the Washington Post. The women, three of whom spoke on the record, accused Rose of actions ranging from lewd phone calls to groping. “He was a sexual predator, and I was his victim,” one woman, Reah Bravo, told the Post, recounting her time working for Rose at his private estate in Bellport, New York.
There is never a particularly bad time to revisit the life of Ben Bradlee, The Washington Post editor who oversaw some of the most defining reporting of the 20th century, including the Pentagon Papers and the entire Watergate sandal. But with that paper currently enduring coordinated, political attacks as a result of its reporting, it really seems like the right time for not one, but two films about Bradlee and his work.
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".
