News Or PR?

In the UK, churnalism.com helps you filter truth from truthiness, or at least spot PR-driven "news."

Do we have one of those over here, or do I just have to keep turning the crank on search-engines?

Nope I we have to do it the old fashion way of checking sources and facts ourselves. I wouldn't trust anyone to do it for me anyways. We have a few websites that say they do this, but to me they're pretty biased.

Cnurnalism seems to be more of an app: they sign up for everybody's press releases, then users can plug in news stories and it finds matching phrases.
