  • Only one student watched the address.
  • Students guessed Obama spoke about raising the minimum wage "by force," said "something about teachers."
  • Multiple students at George Mason University revealed they know more about Justin Bieber’s recent arrest than what President Obama spoke about in his State of the Union address.

    The Media Research Center’s Dan Joseph visited the Fairfax, Virginia school and asked students if they knew what Bieber had been arrested for and what Obama had said in his address.

    Few knew the president had spoken and fewer knew that it was the State of the Union address.

    “I think he was probably talking about…maybe…the situations on [sic] Syria,” one student said.

    The student admitted that he had watched the State of the Union address last year but he had been bored and didn’t bother to watch this year’s.

    Other students guessed that Obama had talked about raising the minimum wage “by force” or had said “something about teachers.”

    “I go to George Mason pretty frequently for these types of videos but this trip was more depressing than usual,” Joseph told Campus Reform. “Typically there are at least a few students that I talk to that are informed and knowledgeable on the news item that I'm asking about. But this time, there was only one guy who had actually watched the speech. Everyone else either didn't know that the State of Union address had actually occurred or had heard about it but didn't have any idea what issues the president spoke about.”
