There were two competition-show finales on Wednesday night, and ventriloquist Darci Lynne Farmer won a million dollars on Americaâ€™s Got Talent, while Josh Martinez was released from the Big Brother house to claim a half-million-buck first prize. Both shows featured tight competition: Josh squeaked past Paul Abrahamian to win by a single vote, while 12 year-old Darci, a season-long favorite, faced a final-week surge in popular sentiment for 10 year-old singer Angelica Hale.
The Good Place was one of last season’s interesting curiosities — a funny little sitcom starring Kristen Bell, whose Eleanor was supposed to be in the Bad Place (i.e., Hell), but instead wound up in the Good Place (i.e., Heaven), overseen by what seemed like a sort of guardian angel, Michael, played by Ted Danson. The show, created by Michael Schur (Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Parks and Recreation), seemed like a primary-color-bright novelty amid NBC’s other wacky sitcoms (welcome back, Good News!).
The Handmaid’s Tale is “wooden and stupid.” Most of the winners are “hacks, their shows are dumb, their art is crap.” John Oliver’s Last Week Tonight win was a victory for a “weekly sanctimony-fest.” Thus did Tucker Carlson slam the Emmy awards on Monday night’s Tucker Carlson Tonight.
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".
