Mad Men’s menu of managerial mendacity

t think it was the great Jeremy Bullmore who observed that Mad Men wasn’t actually about advertising. If it was, nobody would watch it.

And he’s right – mostly.

But some of it is about companies, the way people in them behave and certainly behave in ad agencies from time to time.

Here, inter alia, is that master of managerial mendacity Roger Sterling at his best/worst. It’s worth seeing through to the end.
