Back when Justin Trudeau was leader of the third party in the House of Commons, and the Liberals were mired in third place in the polls, Conservatives and New Democrats would grumble about all the media attention he was getting. It was yet more evidence of the media’s Liberal bias, they muttered. At the time, a reporter for one of our big newspapers mentioned to me that there was a display in the newsroom that showed which stories were playing best online.
Canadians handed Justin Trudeau and the Liberal Party a stunning majority Monday, repudiating Stephen Harper’s epic bid for a fourth term as prime minister and, as Trudeau himself framed it in his victory speech, rejecting a brand of politics that had become a trademark of Harper’s tenure. “We beat fear with hope,” Trudeau told supporters in Montreal. “We beat cynicism with hard work.
From vampires and werewolves through to disembodied skulls and murderous ghosts, PAUL ADAMS looks at the British composers whose specific task was to chill and terrify. The lure of the supernatural in the Gothic tradition left its mark on numerous occasions in the world of European classical or ‘serious’ music throughout the 19th century. Many continental composers were inspired by or drew from new or established stories and legends to create popular and enduring works.
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".
