About This Ad
The Political TV Ad Archive, powered by the Internet Archive, is pulling together resources from a variety of sources to create an archive of political TV ads in key primary states. Each ad has its own canonical web page (sample here), and associated downloadable metadata. Some metadata are added by the Internet Archive; some generated via the media itself (such as count of ads, how many times an ad has aired, etc.); and some come from our partners.
10 most aired political ads, fact-checked
This ad from Trump’s campaign replays a clip of Clinton asking, "Why aren’t I 50 points ahead?" (The comment came during a video conference with the Laborers’ International Union of North America.)
An announcer then answers, "Maybe it’s because the director of the FBI said you lied about your emails. Or maybe it’s because your policies have allowed ISIS and terrorism to spread or maybe it’s because you called Americans ‘deplorables.’ "
These attacks on Clinton are exaggerated.
