1. According to Hillary's surrogates, it's telling the truth about her.

Karen Finney claimed Bernie went "negative" by pointing out that Hillary voted for the Iraq War, and supported every trade bill that ever came down the pike until TPP. Since when is the truth a negative? I guess, when it's about Hillary.

Whether an add is negative campaigning or not has nothing whatsoever to do with whether it's true or not - they're unconnected questions one can ask.
