US federal govt working on "Truthy Database" for internet memes

The federal government spent $1 million to create an online database that will collect “suspicious” memes and track “misinformation.” The project, which is known as the “Truthy Database” is being funded by The National Science Foundation, but it seems as if the operation has some powerful political motivations.

...

The project will seek to understand how misinformation is spread online, but it will be up to a team of government-funded researchers at Indiana University to decide what type of political speech is true and which is false.

According to the grant for the project, the operation will be open source and the database will be open to the public.

Guess they're getting rattled by Bernie's seemingly awesome taste in punk rock. :baton:
