Badger's Law states that the content of any website which contains the word "truth" in its name or URL contains anything but that.
The law states:
“”Websites with the word "Truth" in the URL have none in the posted content.
In practice, this means that websites with this word in their name and/or URL can be considered webshites. Citing such webshites as a credible source is in turn a violation of Scopie's Law. WorldTruth.TV is a prime example of this.
Note the Badger's Law has exceptions; in particular, it does not apply recursively (for example, "example.com/blog/my-experience-with-foobartruth-dot-org" is probably an acceptable primary source about "foobartruth.org"), and applies less strongly when the URL is in the form of a question ("example.com/blog/is-frank-telling-the-truth-about-his-encounter-with-mr-badger").
Exceptions to the rule
- AIDSTruth - debunks AIDS denial
