MTV Slates President Obama Interview, Invitation Extended To Mitt Romney

MTV will interview President Obama for a live half-hour special to air on the MTV channels Friday at 5 PM. MTV correspondent Sway Calloway will interview Obama in the White House, while Andrew Jenks will be at a nearby college campus watching with young voters. Jenks will also host an online discussion before and after the interview.

MTV will be soliciting questions from viewers on its Facebook page, with Calloway choosing the best ones to ask the President. As for Obama’s GOP challenger Mitt Romney:  ”MTV has invited Governor Romney to participate in a live, 30 minute special as well, and hopes to also conduct a sit down interview with him in advance of Election Day,” said the network in a statement.

Much friendlier than MTV’s cold-hearted colleagues at Nick News. In 2008, Obama participated in a similar MTV forum, while Sen. John McCain declined to appear.
