I've been contimplating this...

Had this been a yellow cab...

It *MIGHT* have made local news.. maybe a snippet.

National news?

Nope Nopity Nope..

Cab companies have been able to isolate themselves by having a tolerable level of scandal every year and each company can survive because they aren't hindered by every other cab companies shenanigans.

Uber however?

1 million plus drivers all over the world doing the PR damage of 1000+ cab companies. Every small story is a scandal for uber.
