Little Miss Perfect’s campaign can’t seem to get anything right (via SFGate):

Clinton staff’s gaffe with local ethnic papers

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton’s presidential campaign excluded reporters for the Bay Area’s two largest ethnic newspapers from a fundraiser Friday at the Sheraton Palace Hotel — a perceived snub that led to days of harsh coverage…

…Reporters from Sing Tao and Chinese-language daily World Journal, as well as the smaller China Press were denied entry to the noon fundraiser.

It turned out that the three papers had not been included in the mailing list for a press advisory sent out two days ahead that instructed media representatives to check in by 11:45 a.m. World Journal reporter Portia Li said she arrived about 10 minutes before noon.

Li, a prominent journalist who has worked for more than two decades in the Bay Area, said she knew such events routinely begin late and that reporters often are allowed in after they start.

But a staffer told her she was too late to get in. When Li argued, the staffer explained that because she was considered “foreign media” — which were limited to a single pool reporter — she could not go in.

Any local media who checked in by the cutoff were admitted.

When Li showed her business card, the staffer asked for two forms of identification, which seemed to Li to be insulting. She said she had never had to show identification at similar events.

“She kept saying this is only open for local media, not foreign press,” Li said. “I told her, I’m not foreign press. I’m local media. I was really angry. It’s not about myself. It’s about how the mainstream looks at Chinese (people) as a whole. Why do they call us foreigners, even [though] we have a local address on our business card?”
