      Chess and mate with a glass of juice

      It is obvious that the Fake News Factory takes great interest in every move Delyan Peevski makes. One such example is the innocuous photo of Peevski grabbing a non-alcoholic drink from a cooler while meeting with voters in the village of Pashovi, near Velingrad. Even though there was nothing unusual to that image, certain heavy-weight observers “overanalysed” even that small detail. Chess and mate with a glass of juice! You are not really trying to tell us that Ivo Prokopiev and Tsvetan Vassilev never drink non-alcoholic beverages, are you?

      Delyan Peevski blamed for white sharks in Black Sea too

      The summer is here, it is hot and news days are slow. The days of stifling heath have always been challenging for the information business, bringing about more than a few fake news items. One classical example, dating back to the early days of Bulgaria’s transition to democracy, is the report that white sharks were spotted in the Black Sea. Nowadays, however, this time of year is harrowing for the small but vociferous segment of pseudo-journalists which makes its living as hired pens serving the oligarchs.

      Indicted oligarchs cheat US about Peevski

      We don’t know if you noticed it but as weeks go by a report targeting the lawmaker of the opposition Movement for Rights and Freedoms and publisher of Telegraph Media Delyan Peevski appears in some of the sites of the indicted oligarch. And it is never “just a report” but an authoritative document, full of scary conclusions, namely how bad it is to be a people’s representative.

      Photoshop against Peevski

      Proverbial wisdom says that people are inclined to blame others for their own vices and wrongdoings. With this in mind it is really scary even to imagine what is going on in the editorial offices of the media outlets owned by the indicted oligarch-publishers or those associated with them. After three weeks of the election campaign three things are already evident.

    • Telegraph also asks to #Whom is Porozhanov

      Telegraph also asks to #Whom is Porozhanov

      Whose man is Porozhanov, asks Deutsche Welle (DW) in a commentary about Minister of Agriculture Rumen Porozhanov. Just hours later the commentary was reprinted by Club Z sustained by pharmaceutical boss Ognyan Donev. The Telegraph, as an objective and independent medium also joins in the query, as the query answers the key question, that is on whom the Agriculture Minister depends – is it Ivo Prokopiev, Ognyan Donev, Sasho Donchev or other oligarchs?

      Candidacy that strikes fear in the heart of oligarchy

      In the grips of fear and pre-election exultation, the oligarchy in Bulgaria is furiously producing fake news. One of its prominent mouthpieces Ivan Bedrov, who as a head of the Bulgarian desk of the otherwise highly-regarded Radio Free Europe (RFE) took under his wing former employees of the indicted oligarchs Ivo Prokopiev and Ognyan Donev, recently conducted himself as a veritable internet troll.

      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.

    • Oligarchy in role of Ostap Bender

      Oligarchy in role of Ostap Bender

      “The countess with a changed face is running to the lake,” is the cryptic, and perhaps a bit crazy, telegram that Ostap Bender sends in an attempt to scare the underground millionaire Aleksandr Ivanovich Koreyko. This kind of veiled threat described by the authors behind these fictional characters, Ilya Ilf and Yevgeni Petrov, has been rediscovered by the paid scribblers of the shadowy bosses in Bulgaria.
