The 12th National Games enters the final day, and the competition will end today. The closing ceremony of the current National Games will also be held at 4 pm today. According to the notice received by the National Games Propaganda Department last night, the men’s basketball finals interview reporters will implement a quota allocation system, and the closing ceremony will use cell phone signal jammer for communication control.
Not long after the men’s basketball semi-finals ended on the evening of the 11th, around 22:00, many reporters covering the National Games received a text message. This official notice from the National Games Propaganda Department stated: Adopt reporters to implement a quota allocation system” and attach the phone number of the forecast name.
The phone of the media director of the Tiexi Gymnasium in Shenyang Division instantly became a “hotline”, and the incoming calls were almost unbroken. More than 50 calls came in within an hour. And these reporters have only one purpose, which is to win interviews for tomorrow’s men’s basketball final.
According to the person in charge, according to the notice issued by the superior, there will be only 20 photojournalists in the men’s basketball final at 13:00 tomorrow, and the relevant photo vest must be obtained to enter the infield. At this time, it is almost impossible for reporters who call to make an appointment to get another photography spot. They can only “register first, and then see the situation.” Regardless of whether it is from the central government, the Liaoning and Guangdong sides in the finals, other provinces, cities, and even Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan reporters, they can basically get the quota of journalists.
For such a difficult situation, the person in charge is also very embarrassed. “That is 20 places. Xinhua News Agency and CCTV will account for one half. Other mainstream media such as Liaoning and Guangdong will also Give priority to it, so I can only ask media reporters to understand.”
Immediately afterwards, the National Games Propaganda Office issued a notice on the closing ceremony interview. The original text read: “On September 12, during the National Games closing ceremony, communication control will be implemented on the closing ceremony venues, and mobile phone calls cannot be made in the venues. , You can’t use your mobile phone to access the Internet. Please understand that this will cause inconvenience to your work.”
When the reporter called the relevant person in charge of the Propaganda Office, the news was confirmed. As for the consideration of “communication control”, the other party’s initial response was “just received a notice from the superior, and it is not clear.” But then, the Propaganda Office replied: “The main reason for communication control is to worry about malicious hype about the National Games during the closing ceremony, hoping to guide positive reports on the National Games.”
