‘PBS Idea Channel’ Examines Three Internet Laws and the Impact They Have Online

A recent episode of PBS Idea Channel examines three Internet laws and the impact they have online. In the episode, host Mike Rugnetta explains Godwin’s law, Lewis’ law, and Poe’s law and how each impacts online interactions as they relate to Nazi analogies, feminism, and parody respectively.

The episode also introduces Rugnetta’s law, which states, “No matter how long and thorough a YouTube video is, there will always be at least one person who is ‘really disappointed’ that I didn’t mention their favorite thing which I have somehow never heard of.”
