With an increasingly competitive holiday season for retailers, some are getting a jumpstart on sales. T-Mobile is celebrating Black Friday a full week early—starting today, the carrier is offering a “buy one get one” promotion for a wide range of phones. Anyone who buys a new iPhone 7, 7 Plus or 8, or one of several Samsung or LG phones, will be eligible to get another phone of equal or lesser value for free—after adding an additional line.
Actor Jeffrey Tambor is denying allegations of sexual harassment against him. Last week, actress and Tambor’s former assistant Van Barnes accused Tambor of inappropriate behavior. And this week, another actress, Trace Lysette, who appears with Tambor on the Amazon series Transparent has alleged that “the actor made lewd, sexually suggestive and un-welcomed remarks to her on a number of occasions,” according to Deadline.
As more and more high-profile men are accused of inappropriate behavior and sexual harassment, some are bringing attention to older cases as well. Such is the case with former president Bill Clinton, who was famously impeached for having a relationship with then-White House intern Monica Lewinsky. On Thursday, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) became one of the most prominent liberals to assert that Clinton should have resigned following his relationship.
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".
