Cablegate is fascinating (and validating) to those of us who want to see the machinery of the American empire laid bare. This reminds me of The Wire, which used the city of Baltimore to explore with journalistic precision, the intricacies of power relationships and make a systemic critique of capitalism. Both Cablegate and The Wire have a cult-like following among a handful of liberals, and are ignored by nearly everyone else. Like The Wire, Cablegate is also threatened with cancellation. Hopefully, its fans will be able to keep it on the air.
