BBC mistake cabbie for IT Expert

Mail on Sunday: The BBC's latest star - a baffled cabbie

Sky ran this article a couple of days ago.,,30000-13523760,00.html

This piece just goes to show the validity of the "experts" journalists use to support their article. I do not think this would have worked if it had been fiction.
