我们现在经常说的腐败,不代表诚实和信任,
Lack of integrity or honesty (especially susceptibility to bribery); use of a position of trust for dishonest gain
比如亩产万斤,很少有人说这是腐败。
人们现在常常说的腐败,大多的时候仅仅是指权钱交易。
The practice of offering something (usually money) in order to gain an illicit advantage

Which news article are you referring to?

It depends.
Does ‘腐败’ refers to the conduct? or to a specific act of giving/offering bribe?

bribery - refers specifically to the giving or offering of a bribe
corruption - refers to the conduct of those in power, as in dishonest or fraudulent conduct; make someone or something morally depraved

Bribery is just one form of corruption.

比如我们经常说毛泽东时代就很少腐败,刘青山、张子善贪污一点钱就被毛泽东枪毙了。
这里的腐败如果翻译成corruption就不合适,比如亩产万斤,逼着人们互相告状之类的50年代60年代的事情,这也叫corruption。
