Media regulator probes Nongfu complaint, CNS says

The State General Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television is investigating a complaint by Nongfu Spring, a bottled-water maker, that a Beijing newspaper has deliberately defamed the company, China News Service reported Thursday, citing an online statement from the media regulator. Nongfu Spring filed the complaint on Nov. 4, claiming Beijing Times intentionally published as many as 76 negative stories about the company from April 10 to May 7, the report said. No media organization has singled out any company in this way, Nongfu was quoted as saying.
