A Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate in California reports that a close friend of President Donald Trump says the president believes The Epoch Times is the “most credible newspaper.”
The Epoch Times and NTD, both part of Epoch Media Group, interviewed Paul Taylor on April 13 about his candidacy for the Republican nomination for the Senate seat currently held by Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.). Following the interview, Taylor related what he had heard.
“I’ve been introduced to a person who is close friends with Donald Trump. And when I told her about The Epoch Times publication, she said that Donald Trump reads it every day and it’s the one newspaper that he believes to be a truthful and correct paper. ... It’s the only one he trusts,” Taylor said. “Now, he reads all newspapers so he finds out what’s going on. But The Epoch Times is the one that he believes is the most credible newspaper in the world. That’s a big thing."
Commitment to Truthful ReportingThe Epoch Times, English edition, was founded in 2004 with an unwavering commitment to freedom of the press and truthful reporting.
"At The Epoch Times, we believe that true journalism relies on doing our utmost to report the truth," said Epoch Times Managing Editor Jasper Fakkert.
Increased interest in the unique reporting of The Epoch Times is evident in its rapid growth over the past year. The Epoch Times currently has an online readership of about 45 million page views per month and prints weekly in major cities across the United States. The newspaper will begin printing five days a week in New York City and Washington in late May.
"Good and accurate information is now more important than ever. We've recently seen media outlets that seem willing to abandon their core principles for political gain. This does not serve the public," Fakkert said.
As an independent media, The Epoch Times has taken the lead in reporting accurately and fairly on the Trump administration.
‘I Want the Facts’Taylor gave his own impression of The Epoch Times.
"I come from a science background; I want the facts. Nobody is going to change my mind relative to my ideologies. I want to know what's really going on, and I see your paper really has that method of getting that message out there," Taylor said.
"[The Epoch Times is] broad, it's inclusive, and it's truthful."
Taylor is an entrepreneur who, over a 30-year career, founded three successful companies in the San Francisco Bay Area. After retiring in 2010, he focused on mentoring small-business owners to develop their own successful companies. Now his attention is on the Senate race.
