Spinspotter is a new web browser tool that claims it can detect spin in news stories. When you run the program, it will scan articles for potential indicators of bias. You can also flag words and statements that seem to be unfounded, or that don’t tell the whole story. Flagged items can then be run through collaborative tools (think Wikipedia) that will allow users to be rated on the accuracy of their spin-finds by fellow spinspotters.
