Mad Men creator says criticism of Romney was based on facts

(CNN) - "Mad Men" creator Matthew Weiner says the George Romney criticism early in the fifth season is based on actual events. One of the show's characters, Henry Francis, is a political operative working for New York City Mayor John Lindsay.

In a phone call, Francis vetoes the idea of Lindsay traveling to Michigan, "because Romney is a clown and I don't want him standing next to him."

The year is 1966.

    Wouldn't know how true that is........but we ALL know that Hollywood is Dem socialists trying to turn America into their personal playground, allowing them free rein to control everything Americans see, hear, or do.

    They would be dictators, and indeed they are trying their best to make that happen.

    Rick, the.most accurate desciption of dictatorship is what the republican party is doing, control, control, control. ican twll you right now, your party is in serious trouble come next election, they push ideaology and policies favored by a minority, and that will get you voted out pronto. we will see how effecient their gerrymandering efforts were you can only rule from a minority platform for so long before you are banished from power

    Contol. AH! You must mean Rupert Murdoch. He's a conservative fighting for his rights to control his own company.

    Mitt, lost the very instant he opened his mouth. Once the trap was opened he couldn't keep it shut. He said what he felt in his heart about the American people. And yet some believe he was a victim of yellow journalism. What's it take to open the eyes of so many, that refuse to actually see?

    Crazy talk. The GOP does nothing that doesn't benefit the 1%- the people who own 90% of the weath of our nation and you stupidly talk about "personal playgrounds" and dictators". Projection, is what that is called.

    just more of the lefties re-writing history... pretty soon they'll have us all believing that joseph stalin and fidel castro were liberators and never hurt or imprisoned a single person. it was all just right wing propaganda.

    It is a "not meant to be factually correct" drama show. Anyone who believes otherwise needs to trun off the TV for a year or two.

    @just sayin, once again your watching faux news and listening to the fat boy are getting in the way of clear thinking. Your boy, shoot them in the face cheney, was the one who said that in Iraq we would be welcomed as liberators. It's on record. Really. I am not kidding. That IS the truth.

    right.... which is why he is using the names of real people and then put lies into their mouths so that people think it is factual. it is an old tried and true trick of the left. blurrying and perverting history to fool the weak minded and further their lies.

    I rarely, if ever agree with Rick McDaniel, but I respect that he has the courage to put his name on his posts, unlike most of the right wing nutjobs on here.
