Well, there are some directional cables. Cables that use what's called a telescoping shield, such as a twisted pair with an overall shield that's tied to ground at only one end. The shield is intended to be tied to the source end, which gave rise many years ago to cables with arrows on them to indicate which end was supposed to be the load end.
I believe it wa this which led some people to believe there was some directional peproperty to the wires themselves.
