Poynter: How the ICIJ made sense of 11.9 million documents to publish the Pandora Papers

Poynter: How the ICIJ made sense of 11.9 million documents to publish the Pandora Papers. “In early October, the group premiered its latest investigation: the Pandora Papers, a look at the world of offshore finance and the people — and countries — who suffer when illicit money goes offshore. More than 11.9 million financial records were secured in the Pandora Papers.

Journalists say the documents are just part of the reporting process. That’s where the journey begins.”
