Why all the fake news? In Presstitutes: Embedded in the Pay of the CIA: A Confession from the Profession (Progressive Press, 2019) a high-level whistleblower finally comes forward and exposes the corruption of the Western media. Udo Ulfkotte explains how journalists have to play along with the elite agenda to cover the news, to get scoops, perks, and to keep their jobs. After 17 years as foreign correspondent for Germany’s newspaper of record, Ulfkotte was fed up. He devoted his last years to exposing the treasonous lies, war propaganda, and subversive paternalism of our quasi-Stasi totalitarian media.

It’s widely believed that the CIA attempted to suppress this eagerly awaited English edition by buying the rights to it through a front company, which never published it. Many observers also suspect foul play in the author’s tragic death three years ago, at the age of 57. In Ulfkotte’s absence, the translator and publisher are giving interviews about his story.


● Ulfkotte was about as mainstream as it gets, writing for the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung and other big publishers for two decades. His book was 18 months on the bestseller list in Germany.

● He uses personal examples from his own career to illustrate all of the following points, from his recruitment at university, placement at the FAZ with no experience, and how intelligence officers vetted his information, even feeding him finished stories for him to sign his name to.

● He details how the system of bribery works in journalism, rewarding the obedient and filtering out the non-compliant.

● The lockstep media are synchronized and servile, with the same stories copied across the spectrum to drill us in current political agendas, rather than original reporting.

● Ulfkotte names the big names in the German media, with their personal connections to top politicians and affiliations with “transatlantic” organizations.

● U.S. control of German politicians, finance and media began in 1945, as a prop for the occupation; this Pax Americana holds sway over much of the planet.

● The German media were mustered to introduce the euro, expand the EU eastward and welcome millions of “refugees,” in order to finish the job of destroying German cultural and national identity.

● The author encourages us to shut them down by withdrawing our support from the MSM, and giving it to honest, hard-working independent journalists.

● Finally, this is a guide and a warning to future generations of journalists not to make the same mistakes the author did, which eventually cost him his life, but luckily not his soul.

The CIA and the Media: Historical Fact #65

In 2017 publication of the English translation of German journalist and intelligence asset Udo Ulfkotte’s best-selling book, Gekaufte Journalisten (Bought Journalists) ceased when its publisher suddenly took down the book’s online promotional material without explanation or comment.  A best-seller in Europe, the work is a powerful first-hand account by a mainstream journalist of how the CIA alongside other intelligence agencies influence the output of Western news media. In early 2017 Next Revelation Press, an imprint of US-Canadian-based publisher Tayen Lane, tentatively released the English version of Bought Journalists, under the title, Journalists for Hire: How the CIA Buys the New. Shortly thereafter Tayen Lane removed any reference to the title from its website.

When this author contacted Ulfkotte in early December 2015 to inquire on the book’s pending translation, he responded,  “Please find the link to the English edition here. http://www.tayenlane.com/bought-journalists . The above address once providing Bought Journalist’s description and anticipated publication date now leads to an empty page. Tayen Lane would not respond to requests for an explanation of the title’s disappearance.  As of April 13, 2018 the English translation of Bought Journalists sells for retail price of $997 at Amazon. As is suggested by previous posts in this series addressing CIA ties to the book publishing industry, Bought Journalists‘ subject matter and unexplained disappearance from the marketplace are cause for serious concern.

English Translation of Udo Ulfkotte’s “Bought Journalists” Suppressed?

 By James F. Tracy

The English translation of German journalist Udo Ulfkotte’s best-selling book, Gekaufte Journalisten (Bought Journalists) appears to have been suppressed throughout North America and Europe.  On May 15, 2017 Next Revelation Press, an imprint of US-Canadian-based publisher Tayen Lane, released the English version of Bought Journalists, under the title, Journalists for Hire: How the CIA Buys the News.

Tayen Lane has since removed any reference to the title from its website. Correspondingly Amazon.com indicates the title is “currently unavailable,” with opportunities to purchase from independent sellers offering used copies for no less than $1309.09. The book’s subject matter and unexplained disappearance from the marketplace suggest how powerful forces are seeking to prevent its circulation.

Gekaufte Journalisten was almost completely ignored by mainstream German news media following its release in 2014. “No German mainstream journalist is allowed to report about [my] book,” Ulfkotte observed. “Otherwise he or she will be sacked. So we have a bestseller now that no German journalist is allowed to write or talk about.”{1]
