But shortly after the release, the Ministry of Truth issued instructions to all media to "refrain from further promoting 'Under the Dome'" and to regulate relevant "online public opinion." By March 3, Ms. Chai's People's Daily interview video was deleted, along with the media giant's own links to the documentary. The Shanghai Propaganda Department issued instructions to all levels of media to "absolutely discontinue coverage, reports, commentaries, interviews ... [and] take down special features" regarding "Under the Dome." It added instruction to "resolutely block and delete speech that uses this as an opportunity to cast doubt or attack the government." The Beijing Internet Management Office released a similar directive. On March 4, the People's Daily original Weibo (China's Twitter) post that announced the documentary release was finally deleted, and by March 7 , within a week of its release, "Under the Dome" was removed entirely from China's Internet, just like it never happened.
