At the end of the week with all kinds of weird “news” aplenty time has come to make a brief analysis of the events. The past seven days have started and ended with one and the same piece of news – the alleged poisoning of arms dealer Emiliyan Gebrev.
Over the span of the last three years Fake News Factory released more than 1,000 fakes
Not a day without fake news, misinformation or open lie about Delyan Peevski. The pawns of the oligarchic clique running the Fake News Factory in Bulgaria are repeating this mantra diligently and kissing the rod.
The paid press office of the behind-the-scenes clique
The paid press office of the oligarchy is working overtime in Facebook, primarily targeting lawmaker and Telegraph Media publisher Delyan Peevski, shows a Monitor News Agency study of the social media.
The Russian protégé working as the chief editor of the website for racketeering Bivol, Atanas Chobanov, has plastered a tonne of lies in the respected US magazine Newsweek. This is not the first time that Chobanov, who is the son-in-law of the long-time correspondent of RIA Novosti in Paris and Brussels Victor Onuchko (with ties with Kremlin), is trying to spread lies abroad in service of his oligarchic mentors.
Fake News Factory’s motto: not a day without a lie about Peevski
Not a day without a lie about Peevski. This is the motto of the Fake News Factory founded by the satellite media of oligarchs Ivo Prokopiev, Tsvetan Vassilev, Ognyan Donev and Sasho Donchev. Over the span of the last seven days, this manipulation machine has published or copy-pasted eight fake news concerning lawmaker and publisher of Telegraph Media, a tag-up with Google shows.
Classic fake news with conspiracy theory elements was presented in court by one of the attorneys representing fugitive banker Tsvetan Vassilev – Konstantin Simeonov. The lawyer must have been truly devastated by the fact that the interminable farce of reading the entire indictment in the CorpBank case out loud, a ploy that the Bulgarian Madoff’s defence used to stall proceedings, was finally over and that now the case can actually be heard because he tried to shift the focus by creating a scandalous manipulation, connecting the name of lawmaker and Telegraph Media publisher Delyan Peevski and Vassilev’s absurd claim under the Global Magnitsky Act, on the one hand, to the government’s decision to negotiate the purchase of F-16 fighter planes, on the other.
If practice makes perfect, the regurgitation of talking points makes for ultimate disinformation. Goebbels came up with essentially the same philosophy nearly a century ago, but it is being employed to this day by the Bulgarian followers of the Nazi minister of propaganda working for the slandering machine of the indicted oligarchs-turned-publishers led by Ivo Prokopiev.
The past week was marked by frenetic activity in the publications owned or financed by oligarch-publishers (and criminal defendants) Ivo Prokopiev, Ognyan Donev and Tsvetan Vassilev who joined efforts against the eternal foe of the backstage power brokers, namely the MP and publisher of the Telegraph Media, Delyan Peevski.
