The uncles from the Pečarič tavern directed the media’s coverage of Nataša Pirc Musar and to the detriment of Logar

“Since I do not want to further enrage the uncles from the Pečarič tavern, I will not publish the entire content of their document but will reveal only a small part. 12 indents are dedicated to Logar, but only three to Nataša Pirc Musar. The compromising of Logar is built almost exclusively on a single argument, which, for understandable reasons, at least half of Slovenia jumps on: Logar = Janša,” journalist and editor Dejan Steinbuch wrote about the document with instructions – how to direct reporting on Nataša Pirc Musar and Anže Logar. Despite his caution, he apparently angered the uncles and as a result published part of the instructions he had received.

“Only a few days after the first round of the presidential elections, some media received a document in A4 format with some kind of instructions, recommending how to direct the coverage of Nataša Pirc Musar and Anže Logar in the period leading up to the second round of the elections. Why? Yes, of course, in order to cause as little damage as possible to the candidate, and as much as possible to her opponent,” Dejan Steinbuch wrote in his column. He added that he is sure that Nataša Pirc Musar and even less Anže Logar had nothing to do with it, because according to him the document was compiled by a think-tank from the Pečarič tavern, where the team of the former president in the wider composition took refuge after the collapse of the Zvezda confectionery. The editor of PortalPlus wrote on Twitter yesterday that his uncles sent him an answer to the published column: a burglary attempt while he was not at home.

Steinbuch published part of the received “recommendations” in the column of the aforementioned document: consistent exposure of Logar’s functions in the SDS party – the feeling that Logar is the same as Janša should be highlighted even more; consistently pointing out that he did not oppose the controversial measures of Prime Minister Janez Janša; highlighting the fact that Janša congratulated him on his victory in the first round; highlighting the lack of action regarding Janša’s controversial offensive tweets; highlighting Logar’s position on abortion and adoption by same-sex couples; highlighting his position regarding NOB and the Home Guards. We listed only a few instructions, but at the same time there were also warnings that topics about Ukraine should be avoided, because Logar is extremely strong here, and the field of foreign policy should also be avoided, so as not to raise Logar’s references. In the instructions, the avoidance of tax legislation is also highlighted – “because Nataša Pirc Musar partly has a similar point of view here, but above all, this is her biggest problem with regard to tax optimisation”. It is fascinating how precisely the instructions from the document mentioned in the introduction have spilled over into the media landscape, which the author of the column also noticed.

In the column, Steinbuch did not publish the instructions he had received on how to report on the presidential candidates (“Because I do not want to further enrage the uncles from the Pečarič tavern, I will not publish the entire content of their document,” he wrote) – but it seems that the attempt break-in gave the motivation for a more detailed post. However, he already wrote in the column that the instructions of the think tank from the Pečarič tavern proved to be a litmus test of complete servility, the mandarin attitude of the mainstream media towards the behind-the-scenes power centres; journalists and their editors copied the document verbatim and used it in the pre-election confrontations of the two candidates. It is logical that Anže Logar was the target in 90 percent of cases, but, according to Steinbuch, attentive observers did not miss that this time even the most sophisticated and perfidious instructions could not hide the serious holes in the media image of Nataša Pirc Musar, whom was intentionally or unintentionally defined as a “candidate of transitional capital” at one of the confrontations by Milan Brglez.

“It is very likely that Nataša Pirc Musar will move into the presidential palace in a month, despite the fact that she kept quiet a lot of important information relevant to the public. The result may be very close, I predict that the difference will be less than five percent, and it would be completely different if the campaign had lasted another week or two,” Steinbuch also predicted, explaining that Pirc Musar’s advantage had started to erode in recent days, bills for insincerity and concealment of real wealth began to return like a boomerang.

“I imagine that the old members of the presidential committee were not familiar with the rich collection of skeletons in the closet of the Pirc Musar family. How did they feel when the words of Milan Brglez were confirmed post festum, saying that she is a “candidate of transitional capital”? It had to hurt. Namely, Nataša Pirc Musar represents everything that the uncles, at least outwardly, reject and reluctantly accept as gains of capitalism. Additional humiliation came from Prime Minister Robert Golob, who, after the defeat of the first round, politically adopted NPM and gathered a large part of the coalition around her (Levica party could not support her, as this would betray all its principles). Because the think tank from the Pečarič tavern no longer has special love for Golob, after he twice publicly ridiculed their president, sold out their presidential candidate Marta Kos, and showed himself to be selfish, disobedient and, above all, ungrateful with his actions and personnel moves. He will not be forgiven for this, but the question is whether it means anything at all, because at this moment the Sun King has all the power in his hands, and no one can do anything to him. The worst shock would be if it turned out – and I think we are well on our way to getting there – that it was another catastrophic flop by the old guard, who, after Golob, misjudged and profiled another person for the highest office in the country. If it was a recruitment agency that makes such mistakes, the former president’s team would have been fired yesterday. To be wrong so much twice in less than a year… phew… but that says a lot. Also in the medical sense,” Steinbuch wrote in the column, among other things, and also revealed who he will vote for in the second round of the presidential election.
