China silences netizens critical of "disgraceful" blast coverage

Authorities in China have over the past 24 hours silenced social media users who have criticised the coverage of the Tianjin explosions.

Posts condemning "disgraceful" local TV coverage of the two blasts on 12 August have been removed from Sina Weibo, China's Twitter-like micro-blogging platform, as have posts suggesting that local authorities restricted international media reporting on the incident.

So far, at least 50 people have been confirmed dead, and more than 500 injured, following the blasts in the port city.

The blasts have become one of the biggest talking points on Chinese social media in the last 24 hours, with Weibo posts on the explosion being viewed more than 590 million times.

More than a million users have also been actively posting about the blast.

However, according to Free Weibo, a website that captures deleted social media posts, messages that include the words "Tianjin" and "explosion" have also become the most censored. The website collected more than 50 posts from individual users.

"Disgraceful" TV coverage

Most posts that were censored were critical of the local broadcaster, Tianjin TV, and how it had refrained from reporting on the incident.

According to the Taiwanese newspaper Want Daily, Tianjin local television "only showed soap operas" after the incident. "Netizens were censored."

One user complained that Tianjin TV was showing a South Korean drama after the blast.

"I was watching Tianjin TV at 8am and they were still showing 'First Wives' Club' - I could barely breathe! I feel as though this country's media… shows an inhumane response to emergencies," posted "Xing zhi a fei" on Weibo...
