Ladies and gentlemen, you can take off your tinfoil hats from this point forth!
As I understand it, fox news teach is working on perfecting this new technology and making it world-class.

-----------------

A group of Korean researchers said Friday they have developed technology to filter rumors from postings on social networking sites (SNS).

Researchers at the Graduate School of Culture Technology at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) analyzed more than 100 cases of rumors and non-rumors spread on Twitter in the U.S. between 2006 and 2009, according to KAIST.

“This research integrates statistics and mathematics with theories from sociology and psychology. We drew characters of rumors by analyzing an abundance of data,” Cha Mee-young, an assistant professor at KAIST who led the team, said.

“It is still difficult to classify rumors at the very early stage of their dissemination. But it is possible to do so, using big data, once some time has passed.”
