Michael Bloomberg, former New York City mayor and a billionaire investor and businessman, said the latest version of GOP tax bill is “a politically-driven document that amounts to economic malpractice” and that “it’s pure fantasy to think that the tax bill will lead to significantly higher wages and growth, as Republicans have promised.” In an op-ed published early Friday morning on Bloomberg, the former New York City mayor criticized three areas of the tax reform plan, and explained how...
The Walt Disney Company’s $52 billion acquisition of 21st Century Fox has flooded news headlines this week. Plenty of reports have analyzed the deal’s small details, its impact on the media industry and the dynamics of the Murdoch family. Another takeaway that’s worth some attention is the roster of female executives from 21st Century Fox who will join Disney, where every business unit is headed by a man.
After weeks of on-and-off talks, The Walt Disney Company sealed a deal to acquire the majority of 21st Century Fox’s assets for $52.4 billion, plus $13.7 billion of the company’s debt. The Wall Street Journal first reported the detailed terms of the deal. However, Rupert Murdoch and his sons, the owners of the decades-old media empire, are unsure of their positions in the new company.
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".
