Obama v. Bieber

Come September, American tweens may have to decide whether they want to watch heartthrob Justin Bieber or President Barack Obama now that it has been revealed that Obama will accept the Democratic presidential nomination on the same night that the MTV Video Music Awards is to air.

CNN reports:

A source close to MTV told CNN the station would air the awards from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. Eastern, rather than their usual 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. "to avoid conflict with the Democratic National Convention proceedings that evening." The source commented to CNN on the condition of anonymity.

The Obama campaign had no comment.
