The Political TV Ad Archive is a project of the Internet Archive. This site provides a searchable, viewable, and shareable online archive of 2016 primary election political TV ads, married with fact-checking and reporting citizens can trust. Political TV ad spending is expected to be in the billions. Yet the same local stations that air the ads provide very little solid reporting on politics. Even fewer correct political misinformation. In partnership with trusted journalistic organizations, the new Political TV Ad Archive provides a free service for journalists, civic organizations, academics and the general public to track these ads in context. The project is open source and available on github: this site and the Duplitron
