"The sleeves-rolled-up, megaphone-in-hand image of the premier directing rescue efforts at the scene has become a recurring feature of China's domestic media coverage of disasters," said Nicholas Dynon, an expert in Chinese media at Macquarie University in Sydney.
"Media at the scene of the sinking has been restricted, including foreign media, which is unsurprising," Dynon told AFP.
"For Beijing, this is an exercise in managing domestic emotions, which means controlling unequivocal messaging around who exactly are the heroes and who are the villains," he said.
"While there clearly has been no news blackout as such, there has been a careful coverage management favouring stories about the rescue effort, the role of political leaders and the measures taken by the state to swiftly respond," Dynon said.
"Ultimately, Beijing's primary audience is its citizens, and satisfying international media demand comes a very distant second," said Dynon.

Nicholas Dynon, who researches Chinese media and propaganda at Macquarie University in Sydney, stressed that analysing the causes and effects of violence in Xinjiang was never easy given the difficulty of obtaining independent and unbiased information from the region.
But coverage in state-run media had increased, he said, amid a broader crackdown by new President Xi Jinping on a range of issues in China, although Xinjiang itself had seen far more violent periods in the past.
"I don't think there is necessarily a causal relationship between the recent crackdowns and higher rate of violent attacks in Xinjiang," he told AFP.
But he added: "I do believe there is a direct relationship between the crackdowns and higher rates of openness in reporting on events occurring in Xinjiang this year."

China has found it useful to blame ethnic tensions on outside interference, undermining sympathies at home for legitimate grievances, Nicholas Dynon, a researcher at Macquarie University in Australia, told CNN.

"The state-sponsored press has adhered largely to officially sanctioned themes, including the responsiveness of the central government and military," said Nicholas Dynon, who researches Chinese media and propaganda at Macquarie University in Sydney.
Other key messages included the "swiftness and professionalism of rescue and recovery efforts", he added. "These themes reinforce the key messages that authorities have reacted appropriately and that the nation is united in its support."
Li's visit followed in the footsteps of his predecessor Wen Jiabao, who would commonly don his New Balance trainers and meet disaster victims with rolled-up sleeves, earning him the nickname "Grandpa Wen" and building his "man-of-the-people" credentials.
But China's "disaster reportage is staying more on-message than was the case under the previous Hu Jintao administration", Dynon said, adding that Xi views the media's role as "correctly guiding public opinion".
While there had been "some negative press around non-quake-resistant buildings", Dynon said, "these feature neither prominently nor extensively".
