Read This Before Commenting


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.


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.
