"Charles Ortleb, as editor-in-chief and publisher of the New York Native, was and remains the Izzy Stone of science reporting. He was fearless in his pursuit of the origins of the AIDS epidemic and the government's response in the 1980s. When his newspaper began to diverge from the dogmatic mainstream, however, he was ostracized by the very people he was seeking to inform. In addition, his laser-like focus in the Native on the simultaneous emergence of so-called "chronic fatigue syndrome"--a topic to which he assigned a full-time reporter, Neenyah Ostrom--was laudable. These disorders remain too much alike to arbitrarily submerge one in favor of the other, as the government has done without blinking for thirty years. Ortleb took considerable risks to profitability by pursuing every avenue of investigation on these matters. Yet, as much as Ortleb was criticized, the Native was also a "must read" of its time. When I was reporting my own book on the latter disease, I frequently spied the Native on the desks of high level scientists at the National Institutes of Health. As much as he made them uncomfortable, everyone in the AIDS research establishment wanted to know what Ortleb was going to report next. Ortleb's caustic humor and piercing analysis of what he has dubbed "political epidemiology," and "homodemiology" by the Centers for Disease Control alone makes The Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Epidemic Cover-up worth the read. But the history he recounts here is crucial reading for anyone who missed the Native in its heyday or who didn't "get it" the first time around. Given the recent rise of infectious disease alarms around the world, The Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Epidemic Cover-up is, additionally, remarkably timely for those who seek to understand what drives the American public health establishment in times of crises. A rollicking, fascinating and important memoir."
--Hillary Johnson, author of Osler's Web, Inside the Labyrinth of the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Epidemic
From the Author
The Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Epidemic Cover-up: How a Little Newspaper Solved the Biggest Scientific and Political Mystery of Our Time is a history of a newspaper I published which was the first publication in the world to devote itself to the coverage of AIDS, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and HHV-6, the virus that links many immunological illnesses including Alzheimer's, autism, MS, and call kinds of cancers.
The Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Epidemic Cover-up Volume Two: The Origins of Totalitarianism in Science and Medicine explores the institutions and personalities that have helped cover up the truth about HHV-6, AIDS, and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. It also celebrates the heroes of the resistance to the totalitarian science that is now threatening everyone's health
Iatrogenocide: Notes for a Political Philosophy of Epidemiology and Science is a philosophical exploration of the political nature of the fraudulent science that has concealed the truth about Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, AIDS, and many other illnesses from the public.
The Stonewall Massacre is a long story that captures the sexual politics of the fraudulent science that has hidden the connection between Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and AIDS.
The African Swine Fever Novel uses humor and satire to capture the consequences of lying to the public about the sick animals that may be the real source of the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome epidemic and many other so-called mysterious immunological illnesses.
The Closing Argument: A courtroom novella uses a sensational criminal case to expose the racial politics of the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome cover-up.
The Last Lovers on Earth: Stories from Dark Times is a series of darkly funny and disturbing stories about the plight of a gay community trapped in a culture built on scientific and political lies.
Iron Peter: A Year in the Mythopoetic Life of New York City is a work of satire about the dangers of mindless AIDS activism that have laid the groundwork for the public health mess that Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and AIDS have become.
The Black Party: A Dramatic Comedy in Two Acts is the first play to challenge the premise of every other play that has ever been written about AIDS.
Butterfly Ghosts and The New Hippocratic Oath: Earlier and Later Poems is my first collection of poetry. Many of the poems use provocative humor to capture the dark times we are all living in.
