UK reporters locked out of White House press conference over birth date confusion
A cohort of British journalists were refused entry to the White House for the Donald Trump and Theresa May press conference due to confusion over the formatting of birth dates between US and UK English.

As most people know, dates within the two strands of English are written differently, which apparently caused the Secret Service to become confused. Some of the hacks expressed anger on Twitter after being refused entry to the inaugural press briefing.
