We study the conditional probabilities of the Curie-Weiss Ising model in vanishing external field under a symmetric independent stochastic spin-flip dynamics and discuss their set of points of discontinuity bad points. We exhibit a complete analysis of the transition between Gibbsian and non-Gibbsian behavior as a function of time, extending the results for the corresponding lattice model, where only partial answers can be obtained. For initial temperature \\beta^{-1}\,{\geq}\,1\, we prove that the time-evolved measure is always Gibbsian. For \\frac{2}{3}\,{\leq}\,\beta^{-1}{ < }1\, the time-evolved measure loses its Gibbsian character at a sharp transition time. For \\beta^{-1}\,{ < }\,\frac{2}{3}\, we observe the new phenomenon of symmetry-breaking in the set of points of discontinuity: Bad points corresponding to non-zero spin-average appear at a sharp transition time and give rise to biased non-Gibbsianness of the time-evolved measure. These bad points become neutral at a later transition time, while the measure stays non-Gibbs. In our proof we give a detailed description of the phase-diagram of a Curie-Weiss random field Ising model with possibly non-symmetric random field distribution based on bifurcation analysis.
