Comment la troisième équipe de la DGSE a-t-elle pu faire couler... autant d'encre ? : Le dénouement de l'affaire du Rainbow Warrior entre " fuites " et journalisme " d'investigation "

Abstract : The handling of the media during the Rainbow Warrior episode: genesis of a "scoop d'état" The Rainbow Warrior affair was more than a political scandal linked to an operation led by an Intelligence service. Above all, it was a media scoop merged in the summer of 1985. In France, it both spurred investigative journalism as endowed it with a legitimacy that still survives. However, the conditions in which the truth (the very fountainhead of investigation) shone out should be re-considered; this reassessment calls the journalistic practices involved into question. As for Intelligence (among other fields) scoops, do not really exist as such; they result from what are in effect inventions, the staging of a reality which that was much more mundane, and indeed the very opposite of "golden legends".
