It’s Wednesday, and I’m scratching my head after getting my health-care news from Jimmy Kimmel and my Emmy Awards ratings from Donald Trump. Hello from Los Angeles, where we’re flexing Linda Hamilton’s muscles, basking in Harry Dean Stanton memories, and taking a peek at Adam Sandler’s surprising screen re-invention.
It’s Tuesday, and I thought last night’s 3.6-magnitude earthquake in mid-L.A. was just the sound of Rex Reed walking out of Mother! Hello from Los Angeles, where we’re watching Oscar’s foreign-language race heat up, channeling Shonda Rhimes as she channels Oprah Winfrey, and scratching our heads about John Stamos’s next big gig. Major players in Oscar’s foreign-language category are starting to stake out their territories, ahead of the Academy’s October 2 submission deadline.
It’s Monday, and Emmy season is over—but the age of Sean Spicer has only just begun. Hello from Los Angeles, where we’re tearing off our Handmaid’s Tale bonnets to celebrate, building a Julia Louis-Dreyfus wing at the TV Academy, and trying to join Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon’s book club. Here are my observations from the room where it happened; Hillary Busis and Katey Rich sum up the rest of the night below.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
