    Martina Navratilova said "29 states". PolitiFact agreed, but some cities in those states have protections, so she's only half right?

    Someone at PolitiFact either flunked or didn't take elementary logic in college. Navratilova didn't say "all the citizens in 29 states; 100% of citizens in 29 states" can be fired. She said you can still get fired for being or suspected of being gay in 29 states....and she's absolutely right.

    PolitiFact bends over backwards to split hairs, frequently based on what they surmise must have been the intent of the speaker whose statement they're parsing. It's intellectually dishonest, and they know it.
