Heatable Journalistic Sources

The BlueLink Foundation and the Smoke Free Life Coalition are not the first to raise the question of the interference of the tobacco industry – which has already developed into the nicotine industry – in Bulgarian society, organizations of patients, the scientific communities, tobacco municipalities, universities, NGOs and the parliamentary benches where decisions are made about our health. Examples of this type of intervention can be found in our 2021 and 2022 reports “Toxic Addiction” and “The Heat Media Focus.” Regretfully, these instances don’t seem to go away, and it appears that Philip Morris’s PR efforts in 2023 are still effective and consistent with their natural habitat—the Bulgarian press.
