Our Week In The Web: March 6, 2015

Is it always clear where we're getting the quotes we post on our various social channels (Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr)? Apparently, it isn't! As recent adventures in night Twitter show us, some of you are, well, angry about things we post there and on Facebook. We try and share interesting quotes from callers and guests during and after our broadcast, as well as promote upcoming shows and relevant past programs as news breaks. But the quotes we post aren't a reflection of the show's opinion on the issues at hand. (Recent angry tweets, Facebook posts and emails to the contrary suggest this line isn't always so clear to everybody). We don't take too many positions on the news here; if there's a question about the provenance of a quote, feel free to ask us more about where it came from on the platform where you saw it before a knee-jerk "YOU'RE WRONG" reaction. You're welcome to have that kind of a reaction, of course, but we'd like to imagine tat a more thoughtful back and forth could nevertheless result in the alternative.
