“The National desk didn’t hand off the story to other editors until well past midnight,” Mr. Lacey said. “We were here again maybe five, six hours later, starting up again.” By early Thursday afternoon, less than 24 hours after the shooting, he estimated at least 25 reporters and 15 editors were working on the story. Elsewhere in the newsroom on Wednesday, the video and graphics teams began spinning up.
François Girard’s production of Richard Wagner’s “Parsifal,” opening at the Metropolitan Opera on Monday, is an affair drenched in blood. It stains every aspect of the show, a meditation on the knights of the Holy Grail, the vessel that supposedly caught Jesus’ blood as he hung from the cross. It also floods the Met’s vast stage: 1,250 gallons of fake blood “made from a recipe that includes tap water, glycerin, and red and blue dye, mixed to taste,” writes Michael Cooper, who attended a rehearsal.
When Jada Yuan got the news two weeks ago that she’d landed perhaps the most coveted newspaper writing job ever, she was, as she puts it, “basically as far as you can get from the New York media world”: in rural New Mexico, in the single corner of her childhood home, where an Ethernet cord provided access to high-speed internet.
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".
