Firecrackers, fireworks, fire!

The main Chinese propaganda outlets have shut out all comments on the recent fire at the CCTV's TVCC Tower. This grab from the China Daily Online website caught my attention because there's no link to an email address where they can be contacted!
How silly is that for "online" media?

Moreover, these outlets are suggesting that 'netizens' are demanding fireworks be banned in Beijing next year. Is that because CCTV can not afford another RMB1-million show or because it can not afford to burn down more buildings?
What would really suck is if fireworks for ordinary citizens were banned because of the negligent use of Class-A fireworks by CCTV.
