👋 Whoa! WTF is this?

Current Status is the consensus view of the current top U.S. political stories from a cross-section of the news media ecosystem.


There are three components that determine the Current Status: First, there is an editorially-responsible algorithm that considers the signals news editors send about a story's news value. Second, there's a human-in-the-loop curating the list and providing oversight to ensure that the Current Status is a fair and accurate representation of the day's essential political stories. And third, Current Status is biased toward recent, highly-cited stories, with an emphasis on depth and accuracy. The stars are a reflection of a story's current relative news value.

This is what the political web is talking about right now.

    Jake Sullivan, now 43, will be the youngest national security adviser in nearly 60 years when Joe Biden is inaugurated in January. And he's prepared for this moment his entire life. https://t.co/XvZfhr8NPc

    ⁦Quote of the day on the incredible Jake Sullivan comes from ⁦@PhilippeReines⁩ - “It’s clear Sullivan is on the Benjamin Button track. He is the equivalent of at least a decade, if not two, beyond his biological years.” https://t.co/lf7m6jhpnm

    There's something wrong about this headline: "Trump commits to stepping down if electoral college votes for Biden." https://t.co/VOUrrThddg It's simple, and we all sense it. It's not up to him! The event does not depend on his commitment. To frame it that way credits his crazy.

    “Trump said Thursday he would leave the White House if the electoral college voted for President-elect Biden next month, though he vowed to keep fighting to overturn the election he lost & said he may never concede.” I really don’t care. Do u? https://t.co/f9YYkHdak4

    Trump commits to stepping down if electoral college votes for Biden - (SO.... Trump says when he loses the election ... he will agree to leave the White House. He has not a shred of American values. His option was being handcuffed.) https://t.co/sRXAj3r5aG

    The President should not get credit for agreeing to leave when he loses the electoral college vote. That is literally what is required by law and for a democracy; if he stayed, he’d be a dictator. So this is better than the alternative but still appalling. https://t.co/eERHNB1F1R
