I am a huge Mad Men fan and watched the season premiere on Sunday night. I thought the episode was great as usual, but did notice the mention of Ad Age in the episode. Though I don’t think it warranted this response.

Rance Crain:

What’s wrong with this picture? No. 1, we never did interviews over lunch; No. 2, we didn’t take notes in shorthand; No. 3 we didn’t ask cute-ass questions; and No. 4, our pictures were never bigger than our stories.

Sounds awfully defensive especially given the fact that Mad Men was not making fun of Ad Age, they were making fun of one of the characters. This is most likely a link bait play for Ad Age to publish this.
