This case became news in a number of mass media, especially mainstream media, through their journalistic products. Referring to the mediatization theory of Stig Hjarvard complemented by the mediatization of journalism from Kammer, this short article attempts to unravel how corrupt behavior in the form of bribery carried out by grafters in Sukamiskin Prison was constructed into news in the comics jouralism format in Tempo Magazine February 12, 2017 .
