Tech Talk: Super PAC App | VideoJerame Novak | 9/6/2012
"They`re probably pretty close, but I think they put a mean message on with it to make them look worse than they actually are," said Paden Peterson from Velva.
"It`s a bunch of garbage. No, I don`t believe everything I see. It`s everybody trying to hurt each other," said Mary Bartsch from Bismarck.
"I`d say they`re about 90 percent," said Marc Schmidt from Bismarck.
"I mean you can`t always believe what you hear and you really have to do a lot of research and digging to find out what`s going on. I just like to find out for myself and research on my own," said Callie Wachendorf from Washburn.
"You can`t really say, `Are all of those ads true or false?` I mean a lot of the ads, a lot of the best ads, most effective ads, have some truth in them but don`t tell the whole story. That`s usually the result of the findings when you delve into those ads," said Politico National Political Reporter David Catanese.
The Super PAC App for iPhone can give you a little more information about the presidential ads you see on TV or online. The app listens to the ad and then gives you information on that ad from third-party websites.
"I think the more information out there for people to mine through, the better," Catanese said.
You can also rate the ads that you see, which can be helpful to the people who produce them.
"They can see that data and say, `okay this message is working, that message is not,`" Catansese said.
The Super PAC app is a free download. Right now, it`s only available for the iphone and only works for ads for the upcoming Presidential race. For more information on the app, visit their website at www.superpacapp.org.
