Die Mehrheit der Bürger vertraut den Medien nicht mehr. Viele haben erkannt: Eine von Konzerninteressen, Hochglanzwerbung und politischer Agitation à l. a. "Deutschland geht es so intestine wie nie zuvor" (Angela Merkel) geprägte "Berichterstattung" hat mit der sozialen Realität wenig gemein. Eine "Kernschmelze des Vertrauens" (Edelman belief Barometer 2017) findet statt.

Der Medienmainstream antwortet auf Kritik üblicherweise mit Aussagen wie "Wir sind nicht gesteuert, Fehler passieren jedem", oder er verortet die Krisenursachen mit der Behauptung "Verschwörungstheorie!" beim Publikum selbst. Eine umfassende und vielstimmige Medienkritik tut now not, die den Bürgern die "intellektuellen Waffen" an die Hand gibt, derlei Ausflüchte und Entmündigungsversuche zu entlarven. Jens Wernicke hat mit zahlreichen Medienexperten über die verschiedenen Facetten der Vertrauenskrise gesprochen und liefert ein unverzichtbares Kompendium der Medienkritik.

Untersucht werden die Zusammenhänge und Unterschiede zwischen herkömmlichem Mobbing und Cybermobbing, indirektem und direkten Mobbing, deren Merkmale sowie unterschiedliche Erscheinungsformen, die mit realen Beispielfällen anschaulich erläutert werden.
Da es sich bei Cybermobbing um ein ernst zu nehmendes gesellschaftliches challenge handelt, werden abschließend mögliche Interventions- und Handlungsstrategien aus der Perspektive der Sozialen Arbeit beleuchtet.
