Brazil's Foreign Ministry removed Folha from the roundup of daily news clippings accessed by the ministry's employees.
The roundup compiles news from national and international media outlets, and Folha has become the only major newspaper not included.
According to the Foreign Ministry, Folha was excluded because President Jair Bolsonaro's (PSL) planned to cancel subscriptions to the newspaper by the federal government.
On Thursday (31), Bolsonaro stated that he had decided to cancel all Folha subscriptions in the Executive government. In a threatening tone, the president also said the newspaper's advertisers "should worry".
The roundup is a daily selection of foreign policy news produced by the Itamaraty press office. It is available on the internal network, and all ministry staff can access it.
