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.
Today in one sentence: Attorney General William Barr concluded that Robert Mueller's investigation found no evidence that the Trump campaign "conspired or coordinated" with Russia; Trump declared that Mueller's report was "a complete and total exoneration" despite Mueller saying the report "does not exonerate him"; Mueller told the Justice Department three weeks ago that he wouldn't reach a conclusion on whether Trump obstructed justice; Trump said it "wouldn't bother me at all" for Mueller's report to be released in full; and Mitch McConnell blocked a non-binding resolution to make Mueller's full report public.
