Still undecided about the upcoming presidential election? Can’t figure out if you’re getting fair and balanced news? Spinspotter.com is at your service, advising weary voters which way their news is slanted.

By downloading the Spinspotter toolbar, appropriately dubbed ‘Spinoculars,’ Spinspotter instantly advises Internet users if the website they’re viewing leans in one political direction or another.

The toolbar also allows Spinspotter users to highlight parts of articles that are slanted, allowing other Spinspotter users to see their markups.

They offer advice on creating new spin markers and journalism ethics. Spinspotter could be the most entertaining web tool/real life distraction since StumbleUpon.
