Television broadcasts in the coastal Chinese city of nine million were hacked, with messages superimposed over normal programming.
"Damn the Chinese Communist Party's mouthpieces: China Central Television, Peoples' Daily, the Propaganda Department and the State Radio and Film Administration" -- references to China's state-run broadcaster and newspaper, and the state agencies responsible for censorship, respectively.
Other messages read: "the Communist bandits are the real criminals" and "Friends, do not cooperate with Communist devils," according to Foreign Policy.
Another called for the release of Liu Xiaobo, a jailed dissident. There has been no claim of responsibility for the incident, and no immediate response from the Chinese government.
