About Us
The United States is currently beset by division and turmoil. Conservatives are clashing with liberals, while traditional values are under assault from progressivism. Inflation, the border crisis, and conflicts abroad have led to heightened instability around the world.
Media outlets that used to show mutual respect are now severely divided. Both left-wing and right-wing media accuse each other of being fake news. Trust in the news media has eroded to an all-time low. and those that don’t follow the establishment narrative in their reporting are often attacked, canceled, and sued.
We hope to earn the trust of the American people through honest reporting grounded in ethical journalism.
Two decades ago, the founders of The Epoch Times came to the United States from communist China in search of freedom of speech and belief, and the American Dream. We deeply admire the Founding Fathers and believe that a nation founded on rights and virtues offers hope, especially to those who have lived under oppression. We established a non-profit media company to report the truth independently of any corporate, political, or financial influence. The Communist Party in China used to say, "Your voice is our voice," but that was a lie. Our aim is not to force our perspective on you, but to give you the information you need to make up your own mind.
Today, we are being attacked, shadow banned, and canceled, not only by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) but by Big Tech and establishment media. Despite facing numerous challenges and setbacks, we have never lost hope in our mission to report the facts.
Our offices have been ransacked by communist thugs, our printing presses have been torched, but our commitment to journalistic integrity has not wavered. We will not be silenced in our pursuit of the truth
The outpouring of support from millions of readers and friends has given us the strength to carry on. We receive heartwarming letters and donations every day. Our readers often share about going out of their way to introduce The Epoch Times to their friends and family. We see the hope of America and the world's future in these kind souls.
We believe that truth brings hope.

The Epoch Times Association is dedicated to seeking the truth through insightful and independent journalism. 
We stand outside of political interests and the pursuit of profit to serve the public and be responsible to society. We inform readers, broaden and uplift minds, and promote rational debate—all to foster a healthy republic and a compassionate society.
We investigate issues avoided by the establishment media, try to focus on what is good in society rather than on what divides people, and report with rigor, authority, and seriousness. Our mission is inspired by our founders’ personal experiences in communist China and their efforts to bring honest, uncensored news in the face of oppression and violence.

    Our Story
    (Left) Staff at the print shop that prints the Hong Kong edition of The Epoch Times react to a fire started by four masked men on Nov. 19, 2019. (Right) A CCTV screenshot shows intruders dressed in black, one wielding a sledge-hammer, damaging printing press equipment at the print shop of the Hong Kong edition of The Epoch Times on April 12, 2021.
    Why do millions of people trust The Epoch Times to report the news truthfully and fairly? Our subscribers and followers tell us that our coverage is honest, brave, and uncompromising. We refuse to allow political or ideological bias to tarnish our reporting. That’s why The Epoch Times is the world’s fastest-growing, most dependable media company.
    Our stories strive to reestablish truth and tradition as the essential pillars of authentic journalism. Telling the truth is what prompted a few Chinese Americans in an Atlanta basement to start up The Epoch Times.
    We’ve grown into a well-respected institution while sticking to our roots, delivering you news and information that you're unlikely to see from our peers in the legacy media.
    But beyond just reporting the news, our team is cultivating a return to positive balance and hope for the future. We envision a world where people are truly informed and free, and where the scourge of Marxist ideology has been eliminated. 
    During the pandemic, we all experienced a multi-year lockdown of our basic liberties—including free speech.
    Since our earliest days, we have been targeted by the CCP for our reporting on the regime’s crimes against humanity. Our reporters have been attacked, jailed, and defamed. Our Hong Kong press was set on fire in 2019, while beyond China’s borders, communist thugs have assaulted our staffers and vandalized our newsstands.
    We continue to overcome routine censorship, deplatforming, and targeting by the legacy media and Big Tech.
    Our 2004 editorial series “Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party” inspired a grassroots movement for Chinese people to quit the CCP. To date, about 410 million have quit. Despite being banned in China, The Epoch Times is the premier news source for millions of Chinese who use VPNs to circumvent the Great Firewall.
    Amid the CCP's constant violation of the rights of Chinese citizens, our dedication to the truth has earned us a network of underground informants in China who relay accurate information to us. In spite of the full force of the CCP apparatus working against us, The Epoch Times has become a multinational media company that spans 35 countries and 22 languages.
    Every subscriber who joins us moves us along the road of freeing America from the snares of communism using its most potent adversary: truth. We are holding the line against destructive agendas that encroach upon your liberty, fighting for you and for future generations. Knowing that there are people like you out there, people who understand the value of free speech and a free press—is what keeps us going.
    We don’t take marching orders from any government, corporate entity, or special interest—and we never will. We answer only to our readers—those people who yearn for freedom and who value our commitment to truth and tradition. We are proud to cover the issues that you care about most, every day—most importantly, we want you to know that you're not alone. We listen to our readers and present to them the kind of real discourse that can only be found in a free society. We believe you have the right to evaluate objective, nonpartisan reporting and then form your own opinions.
    Our story is your story too, and we hope you’ll turn the page of the next chapter with us as we work together to restore truth and tradition.
    Why #1 Trusted News Source
    Editorial Independence
    1. Truly Independent
    The Epoch Times is a totally independent nonprofit organization. We're not affiliated with any of the six major corporations that own the vast majority of media in the United States.
    Our mission is inspired by our founders’ personal experiences in communist China and their efforts to bring honest, uncensored news in the face of oppression and violence.

    You can read more about that here and here.
    2. Rated as 'Center' in the Allsides Blind Bias Survey
    In September 2021, Allsides released the findings of its August 2020 Blind Bias Survey, in which more than 2,000 people across the political spectrum rated the media bias of five different news outlets blindly, seeing only their content and editorial choices.
    The Epoch Times was rated against four major media outlets: The New York Times, The Associated Press, the BBC, and Bloomberg.
    Final bias ratings are typically arrived at via a combination of methods, including surveys, editorial reviews (conducted by a team that includes a balance of people from the left, center, and right of the political spectrum), third-party data, and independent research.
    Below are visualizations of the data collected.
    3. The Epoch Times Has Never Endorsed a Political Candidate
    The Epoch Times has built a team of reporters who are dedicated to seeking and reporting the truth regardless of whether what they find conflicts with their personal biases.
    The Epoch Times is so committed to this principle that it has never endorsed a political candidate for office.
    4. Our reporting Isn't Beholden to the 'Official Narrative'
    As an independent news organization, The Epoch Times is not beholden to corporate interests and lets the facts lead where they may.
    For example, in 2017, while most other media organizations reported that President Donald Trump had colluded with Russia to win the 2016 presidential election, The Epoch Times did its own investigation and reported that “despite allegations, no evidence of Trump–Russia collusion [could be] found.”
    Our findings were later corroborated in reports by both special counsel Robert Mueller and special counsel John Durham.
    During the aftermath of the 2020 election, when credible allegations emerged of electoral fraud and were dismissed by media organizations out of hand, The Epoch Times dispatched its reporters across the nation to investigate.
    When COVID-19 broke out around the world, The Epoch Times investigated the possible origins of the virus and the CCP’s handling of the crisis. The Epoch Times has since been at the forefront of its reporting on COVID-19, as well as the vaccines and growing concerns over side-effects.
    5. Banned and Demonetized
    In today's world, being targeted by Big Tech and the legacy media often means you're doing the right thing.
    For The Epoch Times, it has also meant losing crucial revenue streams and being cut off from American audiences. We have been demonetized on YouTube, blocked from advertising on Facebook, and shadow banned on several social media platforms, in some cases, due to pressure from advocacy journalists.
    Many of our contracts in the United States and Canada have been broken after companies received phone calls or written communication from Chinese embassies or other front groups of the Chinese Communist Party.
    These are the main reasons why we rely on a subscription-based funding model rather than an advertising based model.
    Journalistic Credibility
    The Epoch Times practices traditional journalism.
    Our reporters are required to get all sides of a story and allow someone who is being criticized to respond.
    Our reporters are guided by the highest code of conduct and ethics in their reporting.
    The Epoch Times’ commentary can only be found in a distinct “Opinion” section.
    The Epoch Times strives to maintain accuracy and uphold journalistic integrity by following our editorial guidelines on source verification and our editing process. When errors are discovered after publication, The Epoch Times promptly issues corrections or clarifications.
    Here are some examples of our articles and documentaries that have stood the test of time:

    Readership and Audience Trust
    The Epoch Times receives constant feedback from grateful readers. Here are some examples:
    Michael Knowles Profile
    I love reading your outlet, I’m a big fan, a longtime fan, first-time caller.
    –Michael Knowles, Political Commentator
    Dr. Peter Navarro Profile
    I think what’s important is to develop alternative sources of real information to counter the fake news. The Epoch Times, for example, has morphed from what originated as a small newspaper dealing primarily with issues related to China to an international newspaper that is now one of the best in the world. So, in the newspaper space, we need publications like that.
    –Dr. Peter Navarro
    Paul Gosar Profile
    It’s our favorite paper. It’s the first one we read. Thank you so much for your reporting of the news.
    –Paul Gosar, U.S. representative for Arizona
    Tony Robbins Profile
    Knowing the truth and having something like Epoch Times that brings it forward to people I think is fantastic, and I subscribe.
    –Tony Robbins, Author, coach and speaker
    Jeff Ballabon Profile
    I think your coverage is thoughtful and balanced in a way that I haven’t seen elsewhere, and I say this, by the way, as a former senior vice president of CBS News. I would say that I know a lot about media and journalism.
    –Jeff Ballabon, Former SVP, CBS News
    Dr. Sebastian Gorka Profile
    I congratulate you and the Epoch Times for the work you’re doing, especially with regards to keeping the menace of the communist threat in front of us.
    –Dr. Sebastian Gorka, Military and Intelligence Analyst
    Chris Widener Profile
    They are the folks who are out there promoting the truth. [...] They are real news. They are what we used to call journalists. They are not asserting their opinions. They are telling you what it is and letting you make your own decisions. [...] We not only enjoy The Epoch Times, we also want to support The Epoch Times because they are real journalists who are taking the truth and bringing it to the masses, [...] not just here in America but around the world.
