Scurrying around at Geneva, from my lowly position near the floor, I couldn't help but notice how the journalistic art is becoming a strange and whimsical trade. Don't get me wrong, the business has always been an intermingled affair, with access to senior industry figures and the latest info on the latest model controlled and manipulated for the companies' interests. But it seems that in the last few years, both the journalists and car companies have entered a destructive spiral where one refuses to really probe and criticise and the other produces product entirely geared to pleasing these most unreliable of judges.
