Deceptive Advertising in Presidential Campaign

by Kellye
FlackCheck.org released a video on 6/20/12 (see link below) concerning deceptive ads that were released by the four biggest spending 501(c)4 groups between 12/1/11 and 6/1/12.  According to their source, 85% of the money spent on presidential ads by these four “social welfare organizations” during this period supported ads that contained at least one deceptive claim according to fact-checking groups.  After watching the video, scroll down the page to see a list of some of the misleading attacks. You will note that some of those attacks were made by these Republican-leaning 501(c)4’s against fellow Republicans during the primaries.
