In an increasingly chaotic and fractious political season that promises to offer the largest volume of ads ever seen in US history, the new Political TV Ad Archive — powered by the Internet Archive— is preserving ads online and making underlying metadata on airings, sponsors, and more available to journalists. Come hear from the Internet Archive, along with journalism and fact-checking partners who are using the data in novel ways, to find out how to make the most of this resource. The project is funded via the Knight News Challenge.
