Last weekend, the New York Yankees took two of three games from the Blue Jays at the Rogers Centre, but Yankees starting pitcher CC Sabathia suffered a defeat in Toronto without even hitting the field. Early Saturday morning, the veteran left-hander got into a tense shouting match with fellow patrons outside an entertainment district nightclub. The incident, captured on video, didn’t turn violent but Sabathia lost a shoe and some dignity in the showdown, and later apologized for his role.
Some games streamed without commentary, while other viewers reported disjointed, choppy transmissions that failed to capture fast-paced action. Other games simply didn’t show. But then the games began and complaints from Canadian subscribers paying a $20 monthly fee for DAZN (pronounced Da Zone) piled up quickly. And the deal appeared to offer us a glimpse into the future of live sports broadcasting, where online streams come first and TV becomes an afterthought.
During the 2016 Summer Games in Rio, the Canadian Olympic Committee’s brain trust was pondering ways to grow the organization’s sponsorship portfolio. They figured new sponsorship categories were key, and wondered if they could become the first major national Olympic committee to sign on with a commercial real estate partner.
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".
