The saying goes "To defeat your enemy, you must know him". One can feel overwhelmed with the widespread of fake news, troll farms, suspicions of foreign influence on domestic elections. Authors of fake news are little known even though concurrent efforts are made to find them. But they can be tracked down, using open source intelligence (OSINT) techniques.

Take advantage of your journalistic skills and superpower them thanks to clever tools and techniques to lead investigations online. OSINT is a treasure trove at the disposal of the rhetorical journalist. Using logic, deduction and the right instruments one can verify claims, debunk fakes and even unmask impostors.
