MTV Denies That Telecast is Political
Wednesdays with Emily Miller | 10.13.10

Viacom networks MTV, BET and CMT are giving an hour of free air time to President Obama less than three weeks before the midterm elections. The networks will NOT give equal time to a Republican before the election.

The so-called “A Conversation with President Obama” will be live and commercial-free on six Viacom networks at 4 p.m. on Thursday.

MTV denies that the Obama TV hour 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," a MTV spokeswoman told me.

Does Viacom and its networks have any intention of holding a town hall for a Republican?

“There’s nothing on our current schedule,” responded the MTV spokeswoman.
