Fact checker check thyself


As you probably noticed, the fact checkers are often or even usually the enemies of truth. Here is a good example. The Cambridge Dictionary (something I had never heard of till today but which dates back, apparently, to the remote era of 1995) changed the definition of woman to include transgender man. 

Or rather, not. 

This was not, say the fact checkers, a change of the definition, only the addition of a subsidiary definition. 

So that is cleared up.
