Exclusive!!! Questions Submitted In Advance Of Obama/MTV Town Hall Forum

Emily Miller wrote a great piece today over at Human Events about the soon-to-be Obama/MTV infomercial. (Oops, I mean town hall meeting)

The kids at MTV claim that this event is not political–and that there is no need to provide equal time to a Republican.

From Human Events:

The so-called “A Conversation with President Obama” will be live and commercial-free on six Viacom networks at 4 p.m. on Thursday. The networks will not give equal time to a Republican before the election, according to a spokeswoman.

MTV denies that the Obama hour of TV is political, despite the timing, weeks before the midterm elections.

“We’re not giving an hour of free time to the president to freely express his views. We’re hosting a town hall with 250 young people to ask questions of the president,”Viacom spokeswoman Kelly McAndrew said to HUMAN EVENTS.

“This is not a campaign appearance. This is a town hall discussion.”

Later in the article, the Viacom mouthpiece was asked if the questions will be screened.

Asked if the audience questions are submitted in advance, McAndrew said “absolutely not.”

I didn’t believe that for a second. So I called my contact at MTV and asked for some of the Obama questions.(And I made a request for them to play a Lita Ford video, yeah I loved her back in 1988)

Just as I suspected, the questions–much like the people entering the town hall–are pre-selected by MTV. Here are some of the questions that were sent to me by my MTV source: CONTINUE
