WHAT IT’S ABOUT Directed by Sonja Sohn (Det. Kima Greggs on “The Wire”), this 95-minute documentary follows activists, police and community leaders in the immediate aftermath of the death of Freddie Gray, the 25-year-old Baltimore man who died after being transported in a police van. His death on April 19, 2015, sparked riots across the city, and the state’s attorney later brought charges against six police officers.
WHAT IT’S ABOUT Introduced during the second season of “Daredevil,” ex-Marine Frank Castle, aka the Punisher (Jon Bernthal), finally takes care of the mobsters who killed his family in Central Park. Now, the Punisher — a popular Marvel anti-hero from the ’70s who killed bad guys without a second thought, and who is the antithesis to thoughtful, methodical Daredevil — faces a greater challenge. He’ll need an assist.
WHAT IT’S ABOUT South Asian-American comedian Hari Kondabolu has a mission — to get rid of Apu Nahasapeemapetilon, proprietor of the Kwik-E-Mart on “The Simpsons.” Why poor Apu, voiced by Hank Azaria for nearly 30 years? Lots of reasons, all of them having to do with racist caricatures and the facilitation of negative stereotypes.
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".
