Any mainstream media journalist. As coined by John Swinton, former chief of staff, The New York Times, in a 1953 speech before the New York Press Club.

"We are the tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities, and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes."
That journalist never says what they really think because they are an intellectual prostitute.
