L’enquête OSINT. Des traces ouvertes au récit journalistique fermé

Abstract : this article, we examine how investigative journalists specialising in Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) seize open documents to build convincing demonstrations. Looking at recent examples of investigations carried out by the visual investigative units of Le Monde and the New York Times, we show how digital traces are used to construct trustworthy stories which effectiveness depends on the journalists' ability to re-signify scattered elements. By doing so, they often end up composing a series of new “evidence” that limits the interpretive capacity of readers through powerful storytelling techniques.
