Obama grilled by 11-year-old

Student Damon Weaver gives U.S. President Barack Obama a hard time over education, school meals and bullying.


The young journalist from Pahokee, Florida broke news about President Obama's plan to address students across the country on September 8th just after they return to school.

Weaver rose to fame online with his coverage of the 2008 presidential campaign for his school news team and has long sought an interview with Obama.

Until now he had only managed to pin down Vice-President Joe Biden in his short political reporting career.

Weaver pressed Obama on issues such as the White House's education plans, school meals and bullying.
