  • U.S. Rep Beto O'Rourke is trailing Sen. Ted Cruz in the latest poll

Facebook has launched a new searchable database for buyers of political ads in the United States, Reuters reports. The Ad Archive feature was launched in May.

"We're introducing the Ad Archive Report for ads in the U.S. related to politics and issues of national importance", Facebook product manager Arti Kulkarni said in a blog post. This ad archive details which page or group paid for the campaign, how much they spent on it, its reach and other ads the page has stumped up for.

LeBron James isn't one to shy away from political statements.

Texas Senate candidate Beto O'Rourke says "there's a lot of paranoia and fear" about a caravan of Central Americans walking toward the Mexico-U.S. border, and blamed the Trump administration for stoking those with Election Day looming. The social media network showed that $256.4 million (R3.6bn) was spent on political ads since May. Other big spenders include Trump's "Make America Great Again Committee"-which has spent $3 million on more than 50,000 ads since May-and ExxonMobile, which has spent almost $2 million on 1,758 ads during the last six months".

But that claim was contradicted when a Times reporter dug into who sponsored anonymous ads that called Jennifer Wexton, the Democratic candidate for Virginia's 10th District, an "evil socialist" and depicted her alongside Nazi soldiers.

Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D-Texas) is reporting historic fundraising totals, but it's not translating to higher poll numbers against Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas).

"Our job is to detect ... anyone trying to manipulate the public debate", Nathaniel Gleicher, a former White House cybersecurity policy director for the National Security Council who is now heading Facebook's cybersecurity policy, said when AFP visited the war room last week.
