      WEEKLY DIGEST: Peevski’s MEP candidature: “fear” is key word for oligarchs

      Fear. This is the one and only word perfectly describing everything which has happened in Bulgaria in the past two months. Exactly a month ago, the opposition party Movement for Rights and Freedoms tabled its list of MEP candidates for the Euro vote due this Sunday. The second position in the voting list takes the incumbent MP of the Movement’s civil quota, publisher of Telegraph Media Delyan Peevski.

      WEEKLY DIGEST: Delyan Peevski - MEP candidate who raises concerns among the oligarchy

      What do an ageing cartoonist, pen pusher on the paycheck of the oligarchy and a rhinoceros may share in common? It is hard to guess, isn’t it? The answer, however, is simple – all of them are tools in the hands of the Bulgarian backstage power brokers. Targeted as the sworn enemy of the behind-the-scenes clique, the lawmaker of the opposition Movement for Rights and Freedoms and publisher of Telegraph Media Delyan Peevski who, on top of everything, is the nominee for MEP for the second time is their main opponent.

      WEEKLY DIGEST: Peevski: Seven days of “Oligarchs of the world, unite!”

      “Oligarchs of the world, unite!” is the slogan under which the past seven days in Bulgaria went by. Indicted “businessmen” in the country and fugitive individuals holed up abroad rolled up their sleeves and got down to attacking their sworn enemy – lawmaker of the opposition party Movement for Rights and Freedoms and Telegraph Media publisher Delyan Peevski – seemingly trying to squeeze an entire five-year plan of fake news into a week.

      WEEKLY DIGEST: For a whole week oligarchs seized by fear have been crucifying Peevski

      Almost seven days ago, it transpired that the MP of the opposition party Movement for Rights and Freedoms and publisher of Telegraph Media Delyan Peevski is on the voting list of the Movement and will run for MEP at the end of this month. For years, the MP has been winning the elections in which he participated. Voters know him well, know that he is as good as his word and see that he is fighting the oligarchic shadows in Bulgaria – he forestalls their shady deals and the attempts to foil his legislative initiatives, whereas his media outlets expose the affairs of the indicted bosses.

      WEEKLY DIGEST: Week of fake news and fake reports

      Eh, is there any other journalist association that, on the one hand, is fighting for the freedom of speech and transparent media but, on the other – is using fake news and still faker information sources? Naturally, we are talking about the Reporters without Borders (RSF), their favourite World Press Freedom Index and their good friends from Economedia sustained by the indicted oligarch Ivo Prokopiev.

      WEEKLY DIGEST: Anti-Peevski fakes: If not Bulgartabac it will be CorpBank

      It is common knowledge that repetition is the mother of learning. According to Goebbels, repetition is the mother of propaganda. As regards the oligarchic media in Bulgaria, repetition is not just propaganda. It means lies stored in archives of files whose content are the talking points which are taken out of mothballs every time when the previous one becomes too worn-out.

      WEEKLY DIGEST: Frog afraid of inspection in bog

      What any frog fears most is that someone will make a splash in her so cozy bog. Everybody knows the maxim about fishing in murky waters. The same is true about a bog, especially if it is a media bog. The stale waters where the oligarchs have been pouring dirty money for years yielded a layer of mud, good habitat for frogs and other amphibians around. And when someone attempts to make a splash in the bog and see what are the sources of this nourishing mud it order to cleanse the environment the frogs surround the bog and start croaking. Wouldn’t you believe it?

      WEEKLY DIGEST: Real estate deals and new fakes against Peevski

      If we have to choose a key word for the last week it will be the “apartment”. So far the scandal about the apartments provided by Artex Company bought much under their market price have precipitated two audits – one by the Prosecutor’s Office and the other, by the ACCIAF (Anti-Corruption Commission). These scandals also resulted in two resignations: first of the justice minister Tsetska Tsacheva and second, of the deputy minister of sports Vanya Koleva.
