On an article-by-article basis, look in the ~news/log/news file.  It lists
each article offerred, where it came from, whether it was accepted or not
(+ or -), the message-ID, and some other information as well.

In general, you should be getting nightly reports via email from
news.daily that will summarize your incoming and outgoing feeds.
