After the arrest of the ex-prime-minister, Correio da Manhã news denounced his illegal activities. From jail, he used his network of influence to impose a court order to silence Correio da Manhã.So, we remembered our 48 years of dictatorship, a period without free press, using the blue pencil used by the secret police to censor news.The day after the gag order, we had the cover censored with blue ink. Through the censorship, one could read: We will continue to inform you.
