They join five other Chinese outlets - Xinhua News Agency, China Global Television Network, China Radio International, China Daily Distribution Corporation, and Hai Tian Development USA - which were designated as foreign missions on February 18.
The four, which include state-run CCTV, will be required to submit a list of everyone who works for them in the US and any real estate holdings.
"Entities designated as foreign missions must adhere to certain administrative requirements that also apply to foreign embassies and consulates in the United States", Ortagus added. "China-US relation is so tense that market-oriented media like the Global Times has been affected".
The escalating media row has added to tensions between the 2 superpowers, with China expelling more than a dozen U.S. journalists from the country this year.
Over the weekend, President Trump referred to coronavirus as "Kung Flu". In short while the Western media are beholden to the truth, the PRC media are beholden to the Chinese Communist Party, the U.S. department of State said.

China raises the Huawei stakes by charging two Canadians with spying
Late last month, a BC Supreme Court judge ruled that Wanzhou must stay in Canada and keep fighting the USA extradition order. The daughter of Huawei's founder was arrested December 1 at the request of USA authorities who want her on fraud charges.
"We strongly urge the United States to abandon the Cold War mentality and ideological prejudice, and immediately stop and correct this wrong practice that serves no one's interest". The five Chinese media outlets initially reclassified as foreign missions earlier this year were required to dismiss almost half the Chinese nationals on their staff, according to AFP.
Then the USA administration capped the number of journalists from the five allowed to work in the U.S.at 100, down from about 160.
Stilwell brushed aside concerns that China could retaliate to Monday's move by the administration by kicking out more American journalists, saying there was no "moral equivalency".
