In response, ETTV said it did not carry a live broadcast of the show, but simply ran a special report on the event, while CTi News declined to comment.

The Ministry of Culture said it would look into the matter to ascertain whether the stations in question really had “sneaked the Chinese show into the nation” before it could impose disciplinary measures.

The NCC said it would not intervene in news content.
