Douglas2’s Law

“I’ve even postulated versions of “Douglas2’s Law”, which are:

  1. if you can’t get to primary sources within 3 clicks of hyperlinks (such as to a transcript or video of the talk or interview, the actual court decision, or the journal precis of the scientific paper), they are intentionally lying to you.
  2. sensational articles will include links but trust that very few of their readers will actually click and read what is linked, as it nearly always contains the refutation of their headline claim.”
