What do an ageing cartoonist, pen pusher on the paycheck of the oligarchy and a rhinoceros may share in common? It is hard to guess, isn’t it? The answer, however, is simple – all of them are tools in the hands of the Bulgarian backstage power brokers. Targeted as the sworn enemy of the behind-the-scenes clique, the lawmaker of the opposition Movement for Rights and Freedoms and publisher of Telegraph Media Delyan Peevski who, on top of everything, is the nominee for MEP for the second time is their main opponent.
The news feed can be slow at times, making materials ripe for turning it into a storm of fake news scarce, but that is not enough to discourage Bulgarian oligarchs. They have loyal journalist diligently following their talking points. In such cases these journalists simply go to their archives and dust off the eternal fake news about Bulgartabac.
What do the oligarchs put at stake in their battle against Delyan Peevski, the sworn enemy of the backstage machinations in Bulgaria? You can judge by yourselves if you only take the trouble to finger through the pages of the flagship newspaper of the oligarchs’ disinformation fleet – the Capital.

Tuesday: in the morning – half an hour of airtime on bTV, in the afternoon – 25 minutes on the Bulgarian National Radio, and that same night – one hour on the programme of Sasho Dikov. This is followed by 30 minutes on Bulgaria ON AIR on Wednesday morning. No, this is not the busy schedule of a rock star or some genius inventor. Neither is it the schedule of the country’s president, who surely would have something important to say to the nation.
