Sme is the largest liberal daily newspaper in Slovakia. During the Robert Fico era (2012-2018) it was seen as the mouthpiece of the opposition. In 2014, after its German co-owner Rheinische Post sold its stake to the Slovakian investment group Penta which had been implicated in a large corruption scandal, its senior editors and half of the editing staff left the paper. These journalists are now publishing the independent newspaper Dennik N, which was launched on 1 January 2015.
