Out of the promised information age, we unexpectedly catapulted ourselves into the post-factic with just a few clicks. The confusion is big. Politicians and professional world explorers are angry. Previously, they determined what a message was and how it was worded. All they needed was a tie and a newsroom to tell the truth. Today, every idiot in his bathroom can get more clicks than the elegant speaker in his toll-funded newsroom. Since Trump ruled by Twitter, and Russian trolls are influencing our elections, the alarm is high: democracy is in danger. Arnulf Rating takes us on an excursion into digital and other worlds and shows which spinners and spin-doctors are turning our worldview. With good powers of observation, acumen and wit, he filters the raw material out of the garbage of the messages.
He knows: The snow of yesterday can be the avalanche of tomorrow.
