      Five years after the most massive heist in the Bulgaria’s modern history – the collapse of the CorpBank pyramid – fugitive banker Tsvetan Vassilev is still keeping at his disposal about BGN 5 to 6bn. He squanders the money of the defrauded depositors on lavish life in Belgrade and generous fees paid to lawyers, judges of the oligarchy and, of course, the media and expensive journalists who run his talking points and try to present him as a “victim” of robbery, while they themselves are the real victim.

Stoyana must have stood too long in the sun because she has gotten completely tangled up in her own fables in her bid to defend her guru Kostov with the latest fake news about lawmaker Delyan Peevski.

      It is common knowledge that repetition is the mother of learning. According to Goebbels, repetition is the mother of 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.
