If you have never heard of Wordle.net, take a look at it as it is a quick way to see the key words from text - and in government to look for bias.  For example, the top set of words is from the text of Obama's speech (+ applause!), the middle is from the liberal leaning WashPost and the bottom from the conservative leaning WashTimes.  You can click on each of the images to make them larger.

No, in Wordle the largest words are the biggest ones so you can see if one paper has a different emphasis.

That's what I thought, thanks. I was going to use this today in class until it was blocked by our filter!
