NBC shuts down fake Studio 60 blog

The Defaker website, a mock blog linked off NBC's Studio 60 website, has been pulled off the internet. The LA Times has a great rundown about the rapid rise and fall of Defaker (obviously a spoof of Defamer). The fake blog, meant as a publicity stunt for Studio 60, was supposed to be a fan journal with gossip about the cast and crew of Studio 60 and thoughts on the fake show (Aaron Sorkin had nothing to do with it). The first entry on the blog basically recapped the season premiere. But, it was dumb. And it had open comments-- which summoned some Studio 60-haters and general hate toward NBC.
