From China Media Project:

According to a story from China’s Economic Observer, a reporter with the Morning Post has been sentenced to labor re-education after posting “unacceptable speech” on the Tianya Forum in the wake of the recent raid on the Hilton Chongqing.

The Economic Observer also said two other reporters from Chongqing Morning Post, a commercial spin-off of the official Chongqing Daily, were taken in for questioning by police after sharing “unacceptable content” (不当内容) through the QQ instant messaging service.

The Chongqing Morning Post has reportedly requested that its employees keep quiet about the matter as they deal with the authorities.
