      Prokopiev’s mouthpieces put down their masks

      The amendments to the Media Act aimed at ensuring full transparency of all media financing sources voted in Parliament provoked an outcry among the Bulgarian oligarchy and its public spokespersons. This time, however, their vehement reaction helped tear the masks off those who only pretend to be journalists and showed their true nature of mouthpieces transmitting the talking points of their behind-the-scene mentors.

      Frognews produces fake news about top US diplomat too

      The disinformation campaigns carried out by fugitive banker Tsvetan Vassilev, responsible for the embezzlement of over BGN 4bn from CorpBank, and his paid puppets from the website Frognews, owned by former State Security agent Ognyan Stefanov (who operated under the alias Academician), have reached new geopolitical heights in their fabrications regarding the Global Magnitsky Act case.

      Reporters without Borders grant pardon to Prokopiev

      After failing to push on the public the false truth that he is not an oligarch but is innocent as lamb publisher Ivo Prokopiev resorted to his favourite protection – help from abroad. The ‘pardon’ came in the form of unprecedented letter, an attempt to exert pressure on the state institutions, judicial power and publishers in Bulgaria which expose the shady affairs of the oligarch and his cronies.

      Piling fake news about Peevski on Facebook

      What do a young chess champion and our publisher, MP Delyan Peevski have in common? Do not rush to say “nothing” or dismiss the entire notion with the wave of a hand. The thousands of internet trolls laboring 24/7 in service of their shadowy masters obviously view the matter differently.

      Capital quotes its own lies

      Capital Weekly, the flagship of the Fake News Factory coordinated by the oligarch Ivo Prokopiev, has produced yet another manipulation targeting our publisher Delyan Peevski. This time, it insinuates that Peevski wants to control phone tapping, a presumption solely based on the allegation that “Ilko Zhelyazkov, a person close to the MP” is among the candidates for a seat in the Special Intelligence Means Bureau. This fable might be new, but the fake news recipe it follows is old.

      Illuminated dependencies

      Following the avalanche of fake news that the oligarchy unleashed on the public in a desperate attempt to downplay the latest arrests and indictments in its ranks stemming from a series of privatisation scams that defrauded Bulgarian citizens, the behind-the-scenes clique published an entire print issue of fake news.

      1001 fake news about Peevski

      Scheherazade can only be jealous of her copycats at Bivol.bg, which works like a baseball bat used in an extortion racket for the benefit of its owner Assen Yordanov, a self-appointed investigative journalist, his 'better half' Alberta Alcalay, and their sponsors. Ever since it was created, the internet page has been publishing ridiculous fish stories under the high-sounding rubric “investigative journalism”. These writings are worthy of comprising a new series of Arabian Nights fairy tales, although their sole aim is to lend a shoulder to Bivol's mentors, attacking their enemies.

      State Security agents spew lies about Peevski by the dozen

      Former State Security agents have a habit of switching to another gear in the autumn and showing themselves to be active in order to keep getting their checks. This tradition has been put on display once again by the discredited media outlet of Ognyan Stefanov, a former snitch of the obscurantist communist secret services.

      Fake News Factory is engaging in identity thefts now

      Do you remember the days of communist morning group exercises for students? Well, it would seem that they have not been forgotten by those working in the editorial offices of Economedia, Frognews, and other cogs of the Fake News Factory controlled by oligarch Ivo Prokopiev and his fellow members of the post-communist behind-the-scene clique in Bulgaria.
