Zhou Yongkang's Alama Mater Scrubs Him From the History Books

On August 8, 2014, China’s state run media published a report entitled “China University of Petroleum Deletes Zhou Yongkang Reports From Its Official Website” (中国石油大学官网删除涉周永康报道). According to that report:
China University of Petroleum, which once reported “Zhou Yongkang Returns to Alma Mater to Participate in 60th Anniversary Commemorations,” has been inextricably drawn into the vortex of this "exceptionally big tiger's" downfall. Today, that school launched an "expunge Zhou" campaign: first they painstakingly placed a model rocket to obscure an inscription of Zhou's name, and recently completely deleted all reports about "Zhou Yongkang" from the school's news web pages.
Below is a screenshot of that report as it appeared on May 28, 2014 (via Google cache), and as it appeared on August 16, 2014.
