It’s no contest for college students; Bieber trumps Obama

mrctvMedia Research Center did a few man-on-the-street interviews Wednesday at George Mason University that are sure to reinforce the belief held by some that the apocalypse is upon us.

If nothing else, the effort shows that keeping up with pop culture continues to be a higher priority for younger folks that staying informed on current affairs.

On the day after President Obama‘s State of the Union address, MRCTV’s Dan Joseph went to Virginia’s largest university to ask students if they knew the president had given a major national speech, and then asked if they were aware of what had happened to pop star Justin Bieber.

Bieber was arrested in Miami for driving under the influence, resisting arrest and driving without a valid license days before Obama spoke to the nation.

Few students knew that the State of the Union address had just occurred, and those who did know had no idea what Obama said. But to a person, the same students not only had heard about Bieber‘s troubles, but could recite specific details.

And this is at a leading public university!
