You Can Make Your Own Hilarious Political Attack Ads Using Your Facebook Data

PBS Newshour has a wonderful new tool that lets you make political ads quickly and easily. Ostensibly, it's to show you how cookie cutter campaign ads are. But in reality? It's a great way to make a dumb video of you being the villain of a political attack ad.


And it works wonderfully! You stop at various points in the video to pick which of your idiot Facebook posts or photos you want to insert, and it renders them into the ad's template. So, what do you stand for? [PBS via Nieman Lab]
