👋 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.

    New documents the Postal Service fought to hide show that Louis DeJoy was too slow to take necessary steps to address conflicts of interest. It raises questions about whether we can trust DeJoy and the Postal Service to make the right call in the future. https://t.co/Cq4jEGfBre

    Bannon has argued he can’t respond to the subpoena because of executive privilege asserted by former president Donald Trump. That’s BS. The matter now goes to DOJ to decide whether to pursue the contempt referral. DOJ must do so!! https://t.co/AspdN69CzO
