👋 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.
