A debate about the color of a dress on Wired.com has been consuming people. Some say the dress is blue and black, while others say it is white and gold. Each side emphatically believes it is right.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning, I'm David Greene, thinking maybe we should reconsider how we use our time. A debate about the color of a dress on the Internet has been consuming people, including people in this studio.

LINDA WERTHEIMER, HOST:

Definitely looks black and blue to me.

GREENE: You're wrong, Linda, it is totally white and gold - whatever. This image we're looking at here was posted on Tumblr. People online took sides and yelled at each other. Wired magazine put a neuroscientist and a photo editor on the case. They say the dress is blue, and they are wrong. It's MORNING EDITION.
