Trojan Horse Blogging?
As Gabriel Sherman’s Roger Ailes book is now out, parts of it are getting spread around the internet. One of the more interesting tidbits is the allegation that the blog The Cable Game was actually an FNC front operation.
I frequently disagreed with what The Cable Game wrote. It was definitely pro-FNC in ways and to a degree that legitimate blogs like Johnny Dollar’s Place were not. I do consider it telling that the blog just up and died without even a farewell message. Even the most off the beaten path media blogs who had been at it for a year or more would tend to leave some sort of message saying that it was stopping and why. Another weird aspect is that the blog was set up not to be searchable according to its robots.txt file.
We’ll never know for sure if The Cable Game was indeed an FNC Trojan Horse Blog. But it would not surprise me if it was.
