Our endorsement of Sen. Clinton Got Prominent Coverage80-20 held a press conference in SF Bay Area on Jan. 18 to announce our endorsement of Sen. Clinton for the Calif. Democratic primary. Prominent leaders from many Asian Am. ethnic communities attended. 80-20 Board members Joel Wong and Frank Lee co-chaired
the press conference.
In the print media, the news was covered by a mainstream news outlet, the News Media Group in the Bay Area, which included Oakland Tribune (front page), San Jose Mercury and Contra Costa Times. Almost all ethnic media gave us very prominent coverage. The World Journal, Sing Tao Daily and the China Press helped spread the news nationally.
In the visual media, the endorsement was reported by Bay Area's KRON 4 (mainstream), KTSF 6 (Asian) & NTDTV 32 (Asian), each lasting about 2 minutes. To see the broadcasts of the first two channels, click on http://www.80-20initiative.net. The videos are right on the Home page.
