The Matthias Mayer case: How to deal with it?

The large press room in the Tyrolean Chamber of Commerce in Kitzbühel was almost empty on Thursday when the quiet became even more eerie. At around 17.30:XNUMX p.m. the report made the rounds that Matthias Mayer had been taken away by the police. He is said to have misbehaved at a politician's reception in the Austrian team's team hotel, the Kitzhof in Kitzbühel. In his World Cup diary from Kitzbühel, “Dolomiten” editor Andreas Vieider looks at the case.

How to deal with this message? Wrap the cloak of silence about it? Fulfill your journalist's obligation and limit yourself to a short report? Or, in the style of the “new” sensational journalism that is becoming more and more widespread, really hit the three-time Olympic champion with big letters?
