Human Assisted Content Analysis of the print press coverage of corruption in Italy

As stated in the Italy Computer-Assisted Content Analysis (CACA) report, during the 2004-2013 period, selected Italian newspapers produced a high number of articles on corruption (46.239). The observed newspapers are la Repubblica, a centre-left paper; il Giornale, a centre-right paper; Corriere della Sera, a centrist paper; and the business newspapers il Sole 24 Ore, which lacks a clear political affiliation. In contrast to the CACA analysis, which was conducted on all the articles published in this period, the “Human Assisted Content Analysis” (HACA) study is based on a sample of 2.952 news articles.
