Downworthy, a browser plug-in.

Worth a post. Don't know how good it is yet.

From the Chrome Store description:
Replaces hyberbolic headlines from bombastic viral websites with a slightly more realistic version.

Downworthy replaces hyberbolic headlines from bombastic viral websites with a slightly more realistic version. "Literally" becomes "figuratively", "Will Blow Your Mind" becomes "Might Perhaps Mildly Entertain You For a Moment", and so on.
I've installed it. If I run into problems with it I'll report back.

In the future we may be able to have all sorts of agents filtering our incoming news.

ETA: Crap, it filtered its own description! Hang on, let me fix that. :)
