👋 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.

Matt

Let me email you this
I'll never share your email with anyone.

Today in one sentence: Trump discussed withdrawing the U.S. from NATO; a federal judge ordered the Trump administration to remove a citizenship question from the 2020 census; Trump ordered thousands of furloughed federal employees back to work without pay to limit the impact of the shutdown; Trump's Attorney General nominee William Barr faced questions from the Senate Judiciary Committee during his confirmation hearing; and Trump served fast food to Clemson football players.
