Fairfax Media half-year profit has slumped by more than half and the company has announced it will close or sell off 28 of its New Zealand newspapers. The drop in earnings to $38.5m, down from $83m a year ago, comes a day after real estate listings company Domain, which Fairfax spun off into a standalone entity in November, also reported a drop in profits.
A radio producer has alleged in a social media post that he was raped by a male executive at the commercial radio station 2DayFM in 2013. Video producer Blake Phillips wrote in a blog post on Tuesday that he reported the rape to 2DayFM management and the police at the time and the man was fired. “Being raped by your manager is horrific enough … but the real trauma can be in how you recover from that,” Phillips wrote.
Real estate listings company Domain Holdings has reported a drop in profit in its first half-year results since spinning off as a stand-alone entity from Fairfax Media in November. Operating profit fell to $24.7m, dragged down by costs associated with its spin-off from Fairfax Media, with a statutory loss of $3.4m. But revenue has risen 62.3% to $112.7m, driven by the residential listings segment which grew revenue by more than 19%.
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".
