The Cyberspace Administration of Beijing summoned the editor-in-chief of news portal iFeng.com, which is owned by Phoenix TV in Hong Kong, over the violations of Chinese media regulations. They include "'gathering news information and editing news headlines,' using journalists before they had been officially accredited by the authorities, and providing an online news service without a proper license from China’s media watchdog."
