If you’re one of those people who actually believes that Facebook is going to start charging users tomorrow, you’re probably going to want to skip this post. LazyTruth is working on a Gmail widget — something that could’ve easily been borne out of Google Labs — that will automatically vet your messages and determine if they’re full of viral misinformation. When it detects specific unique phrases that are consistent with known fallacies, it immediately circles back to Snopes.com and Factcheck.org (a pair of myth busting portals, if you couldn’t guess) to provide original source links and even rebuttals. It seems like it could be a great way to make us all even
lazier more efficient when it comes to debunking some of the wilder rumors that tend to affect our most gullible friends. Of course, given that there’s no set release date just yet, perhaps the source link could use a scrubbing itself. We kid… we think.
