Read This Before Commenting
STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. Ever wonder if people actually read an article online before commenting? The Norwegian public broadcaster NRK wondered that, so it started testing readers. Would-be commenters now must pass a quiz before they're allowed to add their thoughts below a story, which is making for more civil discussions.
RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:
You know, Steve, I have a lot of thoughts about that news.
INSKEEP: Oh, that's interesting. I bet you do have interesting thoughts, and I'd be happy to hear them after you answer a few questions. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
