WASHINGTON — Four years ago, after Congress failed to agree on funding and the government shut down, National Park Service employees rolled out barricades at many D.C. monuments and other national parks nationwide. Things might look a little different this time if Congress can’t come to an agreement.
WASHINGTON — Arizona Republican Sen. Jeff Flake took to the Senate floor to deliver a scathing rebuke of President Donald Trump’s attacks against the media — and media advocates are cheering the senator’s stand. Trump’s frequent invocations against “fake news” are “shameful” and “repulsive,” Flake said Wednesday morning. The senator also said the president’s use of the phrase — “enemy of the people” — to describe the free press is “chilling” and reminiscent of Soviet dictator Josef Stalin.
WASHINGTON — Police in Prince George’s County said they are responding Thursday morning to a knife assault at Central High School in Capitol Heights, Maryland.

Police said they are still trying to determine what led to the altercation. WTOP has a reporter on the way to the scene. This story will be updated.
Bad news if you wanted to get some work done in the new @dcpl West End library. There is insipid pop music blasting into the common library area from the new cafe. Whose idea was this? I was looking for peace and quiet, now it feels like I'm in a Starbucks
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".
