BOSTON (CBS) — With 7 seconds remaining in the first half of Monday night’s game between the Seahawks and Falcons, the replay officials decided to take a closer look at a Paul Richardson catch along the sideline. This proved to be very bad news for the Seahawks — not because Richardson’s catch was in question, no. But rather, because it gave Pete Carroll some time to think. And when Pete Carroll has time to think, bad things happen for the Seahawks.
BOSTON (CBS) — People always wonder, “How in tarnation are those rapscallion Patriots always so doggone good? Some illegal tomfoolery and chicanery must be afoot, for there is no reasonable explanation for this balderdash.”It’s true. People really wonder this. And while there’s no single neatly packaged, easily digestible reason for the Patriots’ unprecedented run of success over the past 17 years, Sunday afternoon’s massacre in Mexico City provided a fairly comprehensive picture of how they do it.
BOSTON (CBS) — Prior to kickoff on Sunday afternoon in Mexico City, far away from the rabid Foxboro fans who don’t care much for his style, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell casually strolled the sidelines and enjoyed a nice chat with Patriots owner Robert Kraft. What the pair discussed is anybody’s guess; billionaires and multi-millionaires-who-are-pursuing-lifetime-access-to-private-jets might speak in their own secret language for all I know.
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".
