About This Ad

Wall Street banks shower Washington politicians with campaign contributions and speaking fees. But what do they get for it? A rigged economy, tax breaks and bailouts, all held in place by a corrupt campaign finance system. And while Washington politicians are paid over $200,000 an hour for speeches, they oppose raising the living wage to $15 an hour. $200,000 an hour for them but not even 15 bucks an hour for all Americans. Enough is enough. I'm Bernie Sanders and I approve this message.

Sanders ad claims: "Washington politicians are paid over $200,000 an hour for speeches." PolitiFact rules "mostly false."

About the Dataset

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.
