|Was a story of Xi Jinping taking a Beijing taxi a propaganda stunt gone wrong?|
The taxi driver, Guo Xin, 46, started chatting with the two men in the back seat and at first didn't look closely to see who his passengers were.
The man replied, "You are the first taxi driver to recognize me."

But now we are informed the story was fake!!!
But now the story has been deleted from practically all the news websites in China, making one wonder why the story was made up in the first place. The "ride" allegedly took place on March 1, before Xi was confirmed as president, and then why report it seven weeks afterwards?
