There are a few rules around political advertising. First, political ads must be clearly labeled as such. Second, they must be placed where they will be seen by adults, not children. Finally, they must not be false or misleading.
While there are some restrictions on what political ads can say, there is no law against making false or misleading claims in political ads. However, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) does have the authority to take action against false or misleading advertising, including political ads.
The FTC has a few tips for spotting false or misleading political ads:• Look for ads that make claims that seem too good to be true.
• Be wary of ads that attack a candidate without providing evidence to back up the claims.
• Be skeptical of ads that rely on emotion rather than facts.
f you see a political ad that you think is false or misleading, you can file a complaint with the FTC.
