Letter From the Editor-in-Chief

September 14, 2020 Updated: September 14, 2020

I want to thank you for being our loyal reader—we couldn’t do what we do without your support.

Reporting the facts as an independent media is not always easy. Over the past 20 years, our advertisers have been threatened by Chinese embassy officials in the United States, our newspaper boxes have been vandalized, and last year one of our printing presses in Hong Kong was set on fire.

And because of our investigative reporting on the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), as well as our nonpartisan reporting on U.S. politics, other media in the United States have tried to smear us. As a result, we have lost some advertisers as well as our ability to advertise on Facebook.

But this adversity has also made us more determined to keep providing you, our readers, with the best independent news. We understand that now, independent news and information is more important than ever.

In our efforts to continue and develop our independent reporting, we have launched a digital subscription.

Aside from full access to our app, a digital subscription will make you a premium member of The Epoch Times and give you unlimited access to all of our content, including premium content such as exclusive videos, infographics, investigative reports, and e-magazines on our website.

For more information, refer to our app.
