Summary/Abstract: This study takes advantage of Human Assisted Computer Analysis (HACA). In particular, this paper analyses selection, coverage and portrayal of various corruption-related issues and subjects by selected newspapers in Slovakia. HACA revealed that the best coverage of corruption as well as relatively widest variety of different types of corruption was provided by Sme, distantly followed by Pravda and Hospodárske noviny, and finally by Nový Čas. The results of our analysis have suggested that also the largest number of corruption-related articles published during the monitored period appeared in the liberal daily Sme. Yet, reviewed literature further revealed rather confusing and partially contradictory results in related research areas.
