There apparently are three bidders who remain standing in the contest to purchase Rolling Stone, the iconic music magazine. Rolling Stone founder Jann Wenner put his 51% stake in the magazine and website up for sale in September. An auction for the business initially attracted as many as 30 bids. But the field appears to have narrowed the three, according to Peter Kafka of Recode, a business and tech news site. They are:• Jay Penske.
Billionaire Joe Ricketts shut down the local news websites DNAInfo and Gothamist at 5:00 p.m. yesterday, hanging out the internet equivalent of a gone-out-of-business sign on the front door. Both sites -- and Gothamist’s companion sites in Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Washington -- all point to a memo in which Ricketts said he was shuttering the business with regret.
America’s newspaper publishers say their ad revenues likely will be the same or down in 2018, according to a new survey. But in the same poll, many of those publishers say that they think their businesses’ bottom lines will be up or stay the same. Viewing those two responses together, employees should be on guard for cost cuts or even staff reductions: When ad revenue is expected to be down and the publishers think the bottom line will improve, something’s got to give.
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".
