Die Causa Guttenberg: Anatomie eines politischen Skandals by Eike Wolf PDF

By Eike Wolf

Der Fall des Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg ist ohne Frage ein Phänomen: Wohl noch nie lagen Aufstieg und Fall eines deutschen Spitzenpolitikers so eng beieinander. Binnen weniger Jahre inszenierte sich der Medien-Profi Guttenberg als Nachwuchs-Hoffnung der deutschen Konservativen bis hin zu einer vielfach erwarteten Kanzler-Kandidatur. Am Ende blieb der Vorwurf der Hochstaplerei angesichts einer überwiegend abgeschriebenen Doktorarbeit.
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.
