The guess method offers a hard yes or no estimate. But keep in mind that this package is still embryonic and don't take its answer too seriously.

>>> import storysniffer
>>> storysniffer.guess("http://www.washingtonpost.com/investigations/us-intelligence-mining-data-from-nine-us-internet-companies-in-broad-secret-program/2013/06/06/3a0c0da8-cebf-11e2-8845-d970ccb04497_story.html")
True
>>> storysniffer.guess("http://www.washingtonpost.com/")
False
>>> storysniffer.guess("https://twitter.com/bartongellman")
False
