Welcome to The Wonderful World of Stu! Why are they so intent on killing us just to score an extra private jet for their personal fleets? Why do they create medications just to slowly incapacitate our bowels and make our pancreas explode? Why do people believe this crap? Let’s think of the business model of a big drug company for a second. They spend years and years and billions of dollars developing products with no promise or timeline for success.
Welcome to the Wonderful World of Stu! America! America! God shed his grace on thee. And crown thy good with brotherhood from sea to shining sea! That version is now available on iTunes. We’re the land of the free and the home of the brave. And also, the land of free and brave people that spend a lot of time talking about bathrooms. Who can go into the men’s room? Who can go into the lady’s room? Is it right to even have men’s and lady’s rooms anymore?
Welcome to The Wonderful World Of Stu! If a Boeing 747 filled with people crashed into the ocean, killing everyone on board, would that make the news? What if the plane was entirely filled with children? Then it’s a huge story – particularly because no airline should employ child pilots. What if a plane carrying 620 children crashed – not into the ocean – but instead into a Chuck E Cheese, killing another 620 children – and also catching Chuck E Cheese himself on fire.
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".
