Money, News and Deception in Denver

Our new report tracks political ad spending in Denver. Since Aug. 1, campaigns, Super PACs and other groups have bought time to air more than 26,000 ads on the city’s four major-network affiliate stations.

Many of the ads — if not most of them — contain misleading information. But that hasn’t stopped these stations from continuing to do business with the groups that have purchased ad time — even groups that local newscasters called out for spreading dishonest information.

In this report, Free Press focuses on ads from the five Super PACs and outside groups spending the most in Denver: the Republican-leaning American Crossroads/Crossroads GPS, Americans for Prosperity and Restore Our Future, and the Democratic-leaning House Majority PAC and Priorities USA Action.
