Just when you thought 2017 was winding down, a band of bad-mouthing, gun-wielding, whip-smart women have appeared on the horizon, ready to take down a gang of unlawful men. As the trailer for Netflix’s “Godless” boasts: “Welcome to no man’s land.”The limited series, written and directed by Scott Frank and produced by Casey Silver and Steven Soderbergh, follows criminal Frank Griffin (Jeff Daniels) as he hunts down his former gang member and son-like protégé, Roy Goode (Jack O’Connell).
Numerous stories about men in Hollywood have emerged over the past several weeks, detailing how figures like Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, Brett Ratner and Louis C.K. have taken advantage of less powerful women and men in their industry. And these stories have only opened the floodgates for more truths in other fields to be told.
Over the last year, many of us have felt downtrodden by a slew of tragic events. The Charlottesville rallies. Hurricane devastation after Harvey and Irma. The Las Vegas shooting. Unimaginable violence in Sutherland Springs. Even the traditionally escapist realm of Hollywood has narrowed as more and more sexual assault allegations emerge from behind the curtain. That’s why it’s a better time than ever to embrace a film genre long maligned: the classic tear-jerker.
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".
