Cited News presents the most important citations on Wikipedia

Citations on Wikipedia should be verifiable, resulting in high quality news sources. Through analysing citations, it is possible to determine how reliable a source is (how many different Wikipedia articles use it as a source) and how newsworthy a Wikipedia page is (how many different sources are writing about a topic). These metrics are combined to determine the most important news story for any given date.

Being based on Wikipedia citations, Cited News should not suffer from problems such as fake news or being an echo chamber. But in practice, Cited News is only as good as its source.

If you're unhappy with the news presented below, consider contributing by editing Wikipedia pages on current events. Your changes will be visible on this page within minutes.
