"Websites cannot privately gather information on the accident, and when publishing news cannot add individual interpretation without authorization. Do not make live broadcasts." the directive said.
Meanwhile, the Tianjin propaganda department put out a directive banning editors, reporters for city TV stations, radio stations, newspapers, and new media or TV anchors from posting to social media about the blasts, CDT said.
A Chinese journalist in Tianjin, who declined to be named, said access to the blast site was getting more difficult, with security checkpoints on major highways.
"They allowed journalists to get closer to the area yesterday, but today we're not allowed," the reporter said. "They have set up police cordons on the major roads, for various reasons, including safety."
China's Internet censors were also out in force, deleting posts about the Tianjin disaster, netizens told RFA.
"I retweeted a couple of items that were critical about the blast, but they were all deleted," a netizen who declined to be named said. "Of course, I expected it."
Meanwhile, the editor of a local news site confirmed he had received warnings from China's Internet police to "be careful" about items from Tianjin. But he declined to comment further.
Online free speech activist Xiucai Jianghu said that any account of the Tianjin blasts that didn't accord with official statements would be treated as "rumor-mongering."
"They will take legal measures against this, not based on the facts, but based on what they ordered to be published," he said.
"The police think the Internet is territory they have to hold, but this obsession with toeing the party line is pretty old-fashioned," he said.
Sichuan rights activist Huang Qi, who founded the Tianwang rights website, said it is very difficult for any journalist to approach the blast site now.
"But the crucial thing is that they are deleting all of the photos and videos posted by netizens from the scene," Huang said.
"That's the thing we should really be concerned about."
