You may have noticed Rosie O’Donnell has been spending a lot of time in Boston. There’s good reason: O’Donnell is hard at work on Showtime’s new South Boston-based series “SMILF,” which most critics agree is good and could, eventually, be great. On the show, O’Donnell plays Tutu, a tough, narcissistic mom who struggles with manic depression. But there’s something — or someone — else keeping O’Donnell in the area.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Hammer said he doesn’t understand how Affleck was able to win the best actor Oscar despite past sexual harassment allegations, while director Nate Parker’s career is in ruins after a long-ago rape allegation resurfaced. Hammer, who starred in Parker’s film “The Birth of a Nation,” said Parker, 38, was treated very differently than Affleck, 42, when it came time for Hollywood to hand out awards. “I’m not saying Nate should not have been in trouble.
Anyone who’s been paying even casual attention to the news lately might conclude that sexual harassment is a problem everywhere. Apparently not. Andris Nelsons, the music director of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, was asked the other day if sexual harassment is — or has ever been — an issue in the classical music world, and his answer was unambiguous. Hmm. We were surprised, but Twitter was angry. And some who heard Nelsons’s response took to social media to react.
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".
