👋 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.

    A Guatemalan mom had her 7-year-old son taken away from her after being detained at the border. She's now suing immigration officials, saying they would not tell her where her son is, even though she has now been released from custody. https://t.co/sZiYIIHgzS

    Wilbur Ross wants you to believe it was just a coincidence that he made money short-selling stock of a company he had inside information about last October. He didn't necessarily intend to make money! https://t.co/zj3daQrY4S https://t.co/kbcDzuuMLE
