Software Spots Spin In Political Speeches

According to an article in NewScientist Tech, there is now software that can identify the amount of spin in a politician or candidate’s speech.  The article goes on to analyze the amount of spin in each of the candidates running for president.  Obama spins the most while McCain clinically depressed.

In another article about six months ago recall reading about new software to detect lies from phone calls.

Think of a new reality TV show which shows politicians being monitored while speaking.  I imagine it would be a strange mix of candid camera and the morning political talk shows.  The right producers could make it rather funny and at the same time inject a bit of wonkishness into the American population.
