      Soviet fashion: Radio Free Europe attacking Peevski once again

      A true Soviet-style nefarious operation against Delyan Peevski, lawmaker of the opposition party Movement for Rights and Freedoms (MRF) and Telegraph Media publisher, was carried out recently by the Bulgarian desk of Radio Free Europe. The Bulgarian branch of the otherwise highly-regarded radio station yet again showed that it has not completely severed the umbilical cord with its former employers and still has propensity to execute their orders; to the detriment of Peevski, of course.

      Delyan Peevski puts the backstage clique on edge

      For several days now the bog of the behind-the-scenes clique has been seized by panic. The sworn enemy of the oligarchs and their servitorial staff, the MP of the opposition Movement for Rights and Freedoms and publisher of Telegraph Media Delyan Peevski has garnered the larger part of the nominations from the party structures and is already a part of the candidates’ list for MEPs from the Movement. This news has virtually made the bog’s inhabitants go around in a circle trying to find ways to cast slur on Peevski.

      Production line for lies against Peevski

      The Fake News Factory once again hit a writer’s block recently and thus found itself resorting to yet another fake news item about lawmaker and Telegraph Media publisher Delyan Peevski. In an article entitled “Commission for taking down the competition”, the Factory’s flagship – the weekly newspaper Capital owned by indicted publisher from the town of Razgrad Ivo Prokopiev – includes Peevski’s name without clear connection or reason.

    • Journalism of fake news

      Journalism of fake news

      “In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” George Orwell

      Journalism has always been a force in Bulgaria, but nowadays it has been tarnished by the ambition of a group of people to hold the rights to everything – civil society, democracy, and truth. Embittered by their own fear that they have “control” over these elements only through a web of pawns, these behind-the-scenes players are keen to grab a stranglehold of journalism as well. So that they can hold it captive in some basement, bound and gagged, and silence it as the public conscious is left with fake news only.

      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.

      Reporters without Borders in the oligarchy’s looking glass world

      On 18 April, Reporters without Borders (RSF), an organisation based in France, released its 2018 World Press Freedom Index where Bulgaria for the next year in a row ranks 111th out a total of 179 positions in the ranking. This ranking, however, for years has been criticised for obscure points of reference for countries‘selection and superficial propaganda used for the purpose.

      Prokopiev’s libel machine whitewashes Lozan’s image in foreign media

      Apart from the Bulgarian media, the indicted oligarch Ivo Prokopiev has pulled all of the strings he has abroad to whitewash the image of Lozan Panov, chair of the Supreme Court of Cassation. The reason for that are the disclosures made in the course of the so-called ApartmentGate. It transpired that the spouse of Lozan Panov, Elisaveta Panova is a record-breaker when it comes to buying cheap apartments.

      Former top FBI agent: The Bureau does not conduct investigations in foreign countries

      “The United States’ Federal Bureau of Investigation does not conduct on-the-ground investigations in foreign countries, except in cases of terrorist attacks involving Americans. FBI agents do liaise – or consult with – foreign law enforcement agencies on criminal matters of mutual interest. But in noncriminal lawsuits like the ones discussed recently in the Bulgarian media, the FBI would not be involved,” said Managing Director of BGR Government Affairs Tom Locke, who is a former executive with the FBI.
