Journalists and Taxi Drivers

There was a fair amount of self-doubt the other day, when I extrapolated the decisive influence of taxi drivers on journalists from a tiny pause in a radio presenters' question to a foreign correspondent. By now I have made the transition from wild surmise to dead certainty when I watched the late night news yesterday. There must be a 1001 interesting things to report on egypt. Yet the human intest slot at the end of the programme showed a feature on the plight of cairo taxi drivers.
