From "The Real Housewives" to "The Bachelor," most so-called reality shows are technically more scripted and staged than they are portrayals of real life. While there are exceptions, many top reality shows seem to revel in their participants’ failures or petty personal dramas. There is no such voyeuristic bias, however, behind the A&E reality series "Born This Way."
These days, Giancarlo Esposito is best known for portraying Gustavo "Gus" Fring, the iconic drug lord, fast food chain proprietor and villain in the groundbreaking television shows "Breaking Bad" and "Better Call Saul." But Esposito has a long career as a character actor in which he's put his own stamp on roles such as Buggin' Out in Spike Lee's "Do the Right Thing" and the narrator in Justin Simien's "Dear White People" series on Netflix.
The lead character in Greta Gerwig's new movie, "Lady Bird," is not trying to land the affection of that one cool guy at the school. Gerwig tells The Frame: "I love 'Say Anything.' I love 'Pretty in Pink.' I love 'Sixteen Candles.' And I love the modern versions of them too. But I feel like that's not what life is like." Instead, Lady Bird (played by Saorsie Ronan) is an independent-minded high school senior who is desperate to break out of her ordinary life in Sacramento.
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".
