Aside from a few flubbed lines and sound issues, A Christmas Story: Live went off without a hitch. Well, except for one big hitch: the show itself. We at Vulture had never seen the stage version of A Christmas Story: The Musical, so this was our first look at it in any format. And we were not crazy about the adaptation of the 1983 holiday movie classic, itself an adaptation of portions of Jean Shepherd’s book In God We Trust (All Others Pay Cash).
The Walt Disney Co. has announced that they are acquiring most of 21st Century Fox in a deal worth $52.4 billion. The deal has been in the works for weeks, and includes Fox’s film and TV studio, the National Geographic and FX cable channels business, regional sports networks, international networks (including Star of India and and Sky of Britain), and Fox’s 30 percent stake in Hulu. Disney CEO Robert Iger has also announced he’ll extend his contract through the end of 2021.
people often ask me, what makes a @vulture story? it's hard to pinpoint, but today we have: jesse with a high-key silly take, a reality tv debate, a bad movie taken way too seriously, unadulterated thirst, and a deeply reported piece of film journalism. im going to print this. https://t.co/3U49u7qg0M
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".
