The eagerly awaited English edition of "Bought Journalists" was suppressed for three years under the title "Journalists for Hire" -- and still got 24 five-star-only Amazon reviews from would-be readers. 18 months on the bestseller list in Germany. Now it's finally here!

Ever get the feeling the media tries to manipulate or lie to you? You have plenty of company! And you are right -- the facts are in. A world-class media insider has blown the whistle on what really goes on inside the media industry.

Author Udo Ulfkotte was a respected journalist for 17 years with Germany's newspaper of record, the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. He begins this explosive exposé by first owning up to his own career, where he had to sell out to have the job. He then reveals the deceptive tricks and secret networks of power within the media. How perks are used to bribe journalists and opinion makers to twist their reporting. How the tone of corruption is set from the top -- play along or quit. How the long arm of the NATO press office enrolls the media to get Europe to support more foreign wars.

The elite owners of the media feel it's their right to think for us, and to mold public opinion to their agendas. Their Freedom of the Press is Freedom to Censor the news.

Our nation depends on the media to understand our world, just as each one of us depends on our eyes and ears. The media are our senses. When they hide the truth, or lie to us, they put us all in danger.

A million people died in Iraq, Libya and Syria because the press didn't just report the news, didn't just lie about the news, but they invented and sold the events that served as pretexts for wars. The author spent years in the Middle East, surviving an attack with chemical weapons supplied by US and German firms.

This book is a veteran's guide to the media spider's web. It shows how the system works, sharpens your common sense skepticism, and increases your immunity to the controlled media's attempts to do our thinking for us.

Review quote

Amazing book, a sensation, sold 1,500,000 copies in Germany... Destroys the illusion/delusion that there is anywhere in the Western world an independent press... Journalists serve as propagandists and public relations agents for intelligence agencies, businesses, lobbying organizations, politicians, and US foreign policy.... Journalists are recruited when they are still students... All from the lowest reporter to the highest editor to the owners of the news organization are caught up in enabling the elites to control the explanations.... Incestuous relationships between journalists, intelligence agencies, businesses, politicians, and US foreign policy aims are so pervasive that no one thinks anything of it.... With the Western media suborned, democracy and accountable government are not possible. Making this clear is Ulfkotte's contribution. -- Paul Craig Roberts

Confessions of a Journalistic Hit Man... Udo Ulfkotte has done for Western journalism what John Perkins did for our understanding of how economic development in so-called developing nations really works in his bestselling *Confessions of an Economic Hit Man*. And then some! - Steven Yates,

How we are deceived. A mainstream journalist shines a light on "The Man behind the curtain."

A must-read for anyone who thinks for themselves. Mark Twain is often quoted: "If you don't read the newspaper, you're uninformed. If you read the newspaper, you're mis-informed." Udo Ulfkotte explains exactly why this is and how it is done. Kudos to the publisher for getting this important book translated into English. Reading it will make you a much more critical viewer of "the news". - Mark Carlson,

The Western media have become political activists who use their media positions not to report, but to campaign against opponents of their shadowy, corrupting clients. -- Biplane Bob, --

If you don't know the real truth about the press you should read this book. Bought journalism! - Hank,

A book that Ulfkotte wrote with heart and soul... the life of a journalist, who must decide, will I follow my conscience... or take the easy way and collect rewards and awards. -- Talkshow,

Mockingbird from the horse's mouth. Read and get a glimpse of what may be behind most of reports you see on CNN, WaPo and NYT. I cannot recommend this book enough. - J. Renato Carollo,

Especially in times like these we need to take a closer look at the way the mainstream media works. Ulfkotte gives many examples ... The truth is often very different from what they report. This should interest every one, so I highly recommend this book. - Customer,
