36 female former Saturday Night Live employees have released a statement in support of Al Franken. None currently work on the show, but are various staff members (plus original cast member Jane Curtain) from Franken’s era. All of them felt the need to let us know what a great guy Franken is, and that he never harassed or assaulted any of them. They write, “We feel compelled to stand up for Al Franken, whom we have all had the pleasure of working with over the years on Saturday Night Live (SNL).
I sat down to write about the above video, which features Greta Gerwig talking to Seth Meyers about the letter she wrote to Justin Timberlake, asking if she could use one of his songs in her new movie, Lady Bird. It’s an adorable video, but its real beauty is in how it reflects so much about the movie itself. And in watching this cute interview, I find myself flooded with admiration for the film all over again. Lady Bird is a spectacular film.
Make the Road is a New York organization dedicated to issues affecting the lives and rights of Latinx and working class communities of color. High school sophomore Gisele Mendez, who is a Make the Road youth member, showed up to a town hall with her congressman Dan Donovan, to talk about one of those major issues: DACA and the Dream Act.
@wearyourshaydes Totally true! I def remember feeling that stronger pre-9/11 but I also admit that at 17 I was more confused than motivated, and looking back, I can see how that might have translated to despondency
At one point #LadyBird, who is almost my exact age, says she wants to "live through something," which I remember thinking in high school & I just want to tell her to wait till she's 33 cause she's gonna live through some SHIT.
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".
