The New York Jets were thoroughly embarrassed by the Oakland Raiders on Sunday. (Spoiler alert: they will be similarly shamed in an overwhelming majority of this year’s games.) Raiders running backMarshawn Lynch enjoyed the 45-20 victory with his new team. We know this because he danced as if no one was watching on the sidelines with the outcome salted away. Did Lynch’s prolonged choreography run afoul of the NFL’s unwritten rules?
The 69th Emmy awards were appropriately nice. And controversial. They contained all the hallmarks of bauble-based self-aggrandizing yet were a perfectly fine way to spend a few hours. Like sneezing, giving out awards is very contagious so let’s lavish some material goods at the feet of some standout college football players and programs from the weekend. Outstanding Drama Series: USC 27, Texas 24. Many critics wrote this remake of the 2006 classic off after a few plodding and sloppy episodes.
Mike Francesa may be nearing the end of his run at WFAN, or he may opt to stay on for a little longer as a port in the Craig Carton-blown storm. Well-rested and full of vinegar, today he reached back and delivered some vintage heat in the direction of Penn State coach James Franklin for calling a timeout in the final seconds of Saturday’s 56-0 victory over Georgia State. Oh yeah. That’s the good, somewhat informed stuff. “It’s 56-0, let him kick the ball! And then try to lie about it.
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".
