This study compares reactions of two selected Czech daily – Lidove noviny in 1930 and Mlada fronta in 2008 – to expansion of economic depression which forces employers to reduce cost of production and cost of labor force. The easiest way of reducing costs was cutting-down the number of employees. I tried to compare statistics considering the unemployment with media contents of economic news in selected newspapers. Study compares the influence of the rate of unemployment in various Czech and Moravian regions to their representation in selected medias and also compares the influence of the rate of unemployment in selected sectors of Czech economy to their representation in medias. Study also analyses subjects of business news which concerned the problem of unemployment. This study should answer the question about influence of unemployment development to contents of selected newspapers.
