The National waited until the one-year anniversary of Donald Trump’s inauguration to release their video for Sleep Well Beast’s “Walk It Back”, as the song itself has always carried political themes. A spoken word section at the center of the six-minute track incorporates an infamous quote that’s been attributed to George W. Bush advisor Karl Rove, one that speaks to the concept of politicians being “history’s actors.” Rove denies it, of course.
In 2011, Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky was convicted on 45 counts of child sexual abuse over a 15-year period. It’s a wretched, terrifying story, one that was chronicled in Amir Bar-Lev’s documentary Happy Valley. What that documentary also touched on is the disgraced legacy of Penn State’s head coach, Joe Paterno, who was fired after evidence surfaced showing he was aware of Sandusky’s behavior.
Jim Rodford, a founding member of Argent and bassist for The Kinks and The Zombies, has died at the age of 76. Rodford’s passing was confirmed by his cousin and bandmate Rod Argent, who posted the news on the Zombies’ Facebook page. Rodford apparently died Saturday following “a fall on the stairs.” The exact cause of death remains unknown at this time. “To the end, Jim’s life was dedicated to music,” Argent wrote in his tribute.
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".
