Stephen Colbert started tonight’s episode of “The Late Show” with a talk about the latest disappointing entry in the 2017 sexual harassment scandals, accusations made Thursday against Senator Al Franken. “Every day it seems like we find out about another high profile sexual harasser, and today is no exception,” Colbert said at the top of the show. “Come on, Franken! I guess there are no good people left. Let’s just get it over with.
After being curiously silent on the matter for most of the day, President Trump decided Thursday night was a good time to weigh in on the sexual harassment accusations made against Senator Al Franken by KABC radio anchor Leeann Tweeden. So it was that POTUS took to Twitter, where he offered up his latest insulting nickname, “Al Frankenstien” [sic], followed by a pointed question that many Twitter users agreed was painfully un-self aware.
A former CAA client is suing the agency and agent she says sexually assaulted and harassed her, accusing the company of refusing to meet with her when she attempted to report the agent’s behavior. In a lawsuit filed in L.A. County Superior Court on Thursday, actress Demi Mann accused agent Cameron Mitchell of a long-term campaign of sexual harassment, of forcing her to perform sex acts and, in one instance, of drugging her.
This is the true story of the time the Lightning and the Thunder song came on the radio and I angrily declared it the worst pop song since Welcome to the New Age to the New Age and only then learned it is also by Imagine Dragons
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".
