Mediapool heaps slander on Peevski

Stoyana Georgieva, once spokesperson for former PM Ivan Kostov, obviously decided to take the short cut in her latest lampoon targeting our publisher MP Delyan Peevski. From the moment that the bill amending the Bank Insolvency Act with the view of stopping the secondary looting of CorpBank assets was introduced, the Fake News Factory has amped up its vicious attacks against Peevski, who is among the proponents of the bill.

Stoyana Georgieva, once spokesperson for former PM Ivan Kostov, obviously decided to take the short cut in her latest lampoon targeting our publisher MP Delyan Peevski. From the moment that the bill amending the Bank Insolvency Act with the view of stopping the secondary looting of CorpBank assets was introduced, the Fake News Factory has amped up its vicious attacks against Peevski, who is among the proponents of the bill. This can most likely be attributed to the seriously worried oligarchs setting a quota for the number of fake news items targeting our publisher that the media outlets under their control should produce every day. Striving to meet the standard, Mediapool copy-pasted the allegations of a man, introducing himself as a businessman, that Peevski stole his company, which owns several media outlets. A simple visit to the Commercial Register database shows that Delyan Peevski has no interest in media companies outside of those owning our media group. That the aforementioned businessman is lying does not excuse Mediapool’s decision to disseminate his words, without any consideration for fact-checking. To reach its daily quota of slander against Peevski, Mediapool throws in an old manipulation regarding Blitz, in which the weekly Capital insists that the newswire is owned by our publisher. And so, with one article Stoyana Georgieva meets her quota of two fake news items against Peevski per day.
