WASHINGTON (WUSA) - Trent Murphy was supposed to miss the first four games of the season, now it looks like he'll miss all of the 2017 campaign. Per a report by NFL insider Ian Rapoport, Murphy tore his ACL in Thursday's preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens. The Redskins linebacker was suspended four games by the NFL for violating the league's performance-enhancing drugs policy. Murphy, 26, was second on the Redskins with nine sacks last year, trailing only Ryan Kerrigan.
WASHINGTON (WUSA) - We've all heard the numbers in John Wall's new contract. Four years, $170 million. But we wanted to get to know better John Wall as a person. We got that opportunity on Friday as Frank Hanrahan chatted with the Wizards' superstar. Perhaps the biggest takeaway from listening to John Wall's press conference on Friday, is his loyalty to the Wizards, and the team's city and fan base.
WASHINGTON (WUSA) - The 2018 Midsummer Classic might be 356 days away, but that didn't stop the Nationals, Major League Baseball, and the DC Mayor Muriel Bowser from being in an All-Star state of mind. Major League Baseball Commissioner Robert Manfred, and Mayor Bowser unveiled the logo for the 2018 All-Star game on Tuesday at Nats Park. Next year's All-Star game, which will take place July 17, will be the first in DC since the Nixon administration, a fact that isn't lost on MLB's commissioner.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
