The rest of the story. What's behind political ads?

Have you noticed that a presidential election is right around the corner? How could you not with the seemingly endless political ads during every commercial break. When you view a political ad, do you ever find yourself wondering if the claims being made are true and who and how much money is behind it ? Now there’s an easy way to find out with the SuperPAC app for IOS devices. While viewing a political ad, hold up your IOS device to get objective, third-party information about what is being said.

Why not have your students play detective? Share this app with them and challenge them to look below the surface. What do they learn from the app that the ad “forgot” to mention?
