Gas attack against PeevskiSvetoslav Stefanov
The foot soldiers on payroll of natural gas tycoon Sasho Donchev have been in bad pain of late. To be more accurate, for about a month now, since it became clear that the MP from the civil quota of the opposition Movement for Rights and Freedoms and publisher of Telegraph Media Delyan Peevski is on the second position of the Movement’s EP voting list.
Here honesty obliges us to underscore that not only the hired pens of oligarch Sasho Donchev from his small newspaper Sega are worried to death about this candidature but also all known and unknown foot soldiers of the indicted oligarchs Tsvetan Vassilev, Ivo Prokopiev and Ognyan Donev.
But let’s go back to the writers of the gas tycoon who adroitly pay their tribute to the common cause of the behind-the-scenes clique. To report their contribution to the joint combat against the sworn enemy of their publishers, Delyan Peevski, for some time now all the pen pushers are harnessed in writing all kinds of tall stories about the lawmaker. And when affected by creative blocks they start to lug in his name to random materials just to be sure that Google index will give out the name of Peevski at each request.
The team of Sega have apparently braced themselves to produce exactly this kind of a “masterpiece”. In their regular press roundup which is often used for attacking the media that the oligarchs consider “inconvenient” the authors of Sega accounted for their contribution in three thoughtful sentences aimed against the editorial commentary published by Monitor and Telegraph.
Three things transpire from these sentences. First, Sega admits that Peevski is from the team of the “good guys” who for years have been fighting the behind-the-scenes clique. Second, they also admit that they obviously have a common cause with the other media outlets of the backstage Fake News Factory and are set to promote the thesis of Tsvetan Vassilev’s NGO Boets that Peevski was not to be found in Bulgaria. And third, that censorship is deeply entrenched in the oligarchic media because they are taught to snap a salute to their publishers every day and receive from them their talking points. Hence, they have to know the publisher’s whereabouts at any moment – something absolutely unthinkable in the objective and independent media. Simply because these media don’t write to the dictation of their bosses, they write to the dictation of the journalistic ethics. But it is a question of morals, isn’t it?
