The characters are


which literally translate to media warriors. The only thing I can find about this is a CGTN announcement about a competition for the next face of CGTN ("CGTN The Media Challenges"), which only happened in the last week or so (as of July 27 2021).

Notes on character identification

  • 「媒」 has the phonetic component 「某」. The top component of 「某」 (plum tree, now written as 「梅」) is 「甘」 (sweet, delicious), depicting a mouth 「口」 with a piece of food in it.
  • 「勇」 (courageous) is composed of semantic 「力」 (strength) and phonetic 「甬」. Here, the components 「甬」 and 「力」 are written side-by-side as 「勈」.
  • 「士」 is written with an obsolete variant with two extra strokes on the sides. See e.g. 小學堂傳抄古文字・士
