When he took over as the boss man at General Electric in August, John Flannery must have felt at least a subtle jolt of excitement that he was stepping into an iconic role of American business. As a GE lifer who came up in the age of Welch and ran everything from Latin America to India to M&A under Jeff Immelt, Flannery must have felt like he knew GE inside out.
It’s been a rough go of things for ESPN lately. The Worldwide Leader in Sports has come under attack from the White House for “SC6” host Jemele Hill’s tweets about Donald Trump, while also getting blowback from the public over Hill’s suspension for a tweet that didn’t even present an opinion, only the simple fact that targeting advertisers is an effective way to protest corporate behavior.
Thanks to the actions of an eagle-eyed friend of Dealbreaker, we are now in possession of an image that sums up this zeitgeist with near perfection. This is a shiny red Tesla Model S parked on Madison and 87th St, a car with a sticker price of at least $68K. It is perhaps even parked illegally by a few inches, broadcasting the insouciance that many “Tesla owners” are feeling in today’s economy. It is a lovely image. But zoom in to feel the true power of its message…There it is.
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".
