Since The Guardian’s editor-in-chief Katharine Viner published her essay on the mission of journalism in a time of crisis, she has had a huge number of responses – from readers, media commentators and others passionate about the future of independent, public-interest journalism. So we invited her to the studio to discuss why she was moved to write the essay, the feedback she has received, and to answer questions on the future of journalism from the Guardian’s supporters.
Welcome to a new look for the GuardianThe Guardian website and apps have been redesigned for our global readership onlineMon 15 Jan 2018 00.52 ESTLast modified on Mon 15 Jan 2018 00.54 ESTToday, our newspaper is being printed in a new tabloid format for the first time, a decision we took seven months ago. We decided then that we also wanted to redesign the Guardian for our global readership online – to create a beautiful new design that works for readers across mobile, apps and desktop.
I wanted to write to you personally to remind you that on January 15 there will be a significant change to your newspapers, when the Guardian and Observer will be redesigned in a beautiful new tabloid format. The new design is the result of months of thought, creativity and vision by a team of talented designers and senior editors, and I hope you love it as much as I do. We are thrilled by the new papers. They are visual and serious; explanatory and keepable; full of life and stories and ideas.
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".
