First, the good news – Ozark (new and now streaming on Netflix) is an entertaining, energetic thriller and very binge-worthy. It’s all twists and turns, high tension and is anchored in the fraught situation of a seemingly bland Chicago financial adviser who has broken bad – he’s laundering money for a Mexican drug cartel. The guy, Marty Byrde (Jason Bateman), is your white-collar anti-hero driven to crime because he lives a soulless existence.
There’s a new supernatural/horror series starting on Monday and starring a fine Canadian actor. But it’s so ridiculously bad it’s barely worth telling you about. And then there’s an excellent sort-of horror series starting later this week that you definitely need to know about. Stick with me here. Midnight, Texas (Monday, NBC 10 p.m., Global, 9 p.m.) is a way, way too wild and crazy ride into the schlocky supernatural.
In the end, it wasn’t the raging mockery of Melissa McCarthy that drove Sean Spicer from his job at the White House. Nor was it embarrassment at all too obviously lying to the press on TV. It was being sidelined and being expected to suck it up. Sean Spicer didn’t lie enough and do it with enough gusto on TV. That’s the gist. That’s why he was sidelined. He became an eyesore to the TV-obsessed Donald Trump and has been replaced with eye candy.
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".
