Discussing “The Year of Outrage”


    Guests: Julia Turner

    To those who frequent social media and other online news outlets, 2014 seemed like the year that more people we outraged with more regularity than ever before. From “Bridgegate” to Ray Rice, the street-harassment video to Uber, Darren Wilson to the CIA torture report, there were many stories that boiled our blood this year – and many online reactions to that outrage. Slate recently chronicled the daily phenomenon of public uproar in a recent feature called “The Year of Outrage.” Slate’s editor-in-chief, JULIA TURNER joins us to discuss the feature and we’ll take your calls this hour to hear about the things that had you up-in-arms in 2014.
