Skandalberichterstattung kann sich einerseits als gesellschaftlich hochrelevant erweisen, als mit ihr auf Missstände, Werte- oder Normverletzungen aufmerksam gemacht und Diskurse über grundlegende Werte und Normen in Gang gesetzt werden können. Andererseits kann eine Häufung von Skandalberichten sowie eine Zuspitzung und Personalisierung in der journalistischen Aufbereitung von Skandalen gleichfalls zu unerwünschten Auswirkungen auf Einzelpersonen (wie zum Beispiel nicht gerechtfertigte Reputationsschäden) und möglicherweise auch zu negativen gesellschaftlichen Effekten (wie zum Beispiel Vertrauensverluste in die Arbeit von Medien, Politik und anderer gesellschaftliche Teilbereiche) führen.
Vor diesem Hintergrund werden im vorliegenden Themenband grundlegende Aspekte der Thematik sowie aktuelle Studien und Sichtaufweisen auf die Thematik aus kommunikationswissenschaftlicher Perspektive vorgestellt. Der Band setzt seinen Schwerpunkt auf die bisher in der Forschung eher wenig beachteten Effekte von Skandalberichterstattung sowie deren Gründe und Genese.
