Eike Wolf rekonstruiert, wie sich dieser Skandal entwickelte. Anschaulich präsentiert er vor allem das in zwei Fronten gespaltene Meinungs- und Stimmungsbild, das sich in einer wahren Flut von Leserbriefen zur Causa Guttenberg wiederfindet. Lautstarker Empörung angesichts der Plagiatsvorwürfe standen trotzige Durchhalteparolen und Banalisierungen des Sachverhalts gegenüber. Diese konkurrierenden Deutungsmuster im Diskurs rund um den "Faux Pas" des Ministers, Bundestagsabgeordneten und Dr. jur. a.D. dechiffriert der Autor und wirft en passant auch exemplarisch Licht auf die strukturelle Logik medialer Inszenierungen.
