One question serves here. If out of a needle in a haystack (the real info in an article) you build another haystack then the net effect is just rearrangement. Turning it into a searchable database is an improvement. On the other hand the opinions are also important information - they prove to be the statistical probability-possibility space of the domain of interest on the subject at hand.

He predicted that "truth predictor" software would, within five years, "hold politicians to account." People would be able to use programs to check seemingly factual statements against historical data to see to see if they were correct.
... see also flushgov.net & in particular 4513 on Project Vote Smart.

too bad it's 5 years off - needs to be accelerated for the 2008 election.

4607 may someday be relevant here. There is another item referring to a study of what people hear from through their biasses that is relevant, but I have temporarily lost it.
