The Greatest ShowmanRuntime 105 minutesPGOne of the many terrific things about La La Land (2016) was that it opened with a captivating production number that set the audience in an upbeat mood for a good time to come. This film mimics La La Land with a smashing production number that ended far too soon for me. That’s not too surprising since Benj Pasek and Justin Paul wrote the music for both. This one opens with a number as entrancing as the opening of La La Land.
Lincoln Riley, meet Dave Roberts: As someone who has had the misfortune to have viewed all of the Los Angeles Dodgers games over the past two years I’ve seen more than my share of illogical, imbecilic decisions that defy common sense and cost their teams wins. So I thought I might be immune to the stupidity of coaches. Then I saw Oklahoma play in the Rose Bowl.
The film tells the story of Katherine Graham (Meryl Streep) who, as the owner of the Washington Post, had to make a decision on whether or not to publish the Pentagon Papers after the New York Times had been enjoined by a court from doing so. The decision was made even more difficult because the Post had gone public on June 15, 1971 and published the Papers on June 18, risking a breach of its covenants with its financiers, at least according to this film.
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".
