The Epoch Times = Truthful Reporting

George and I are big fans of the Epoch Times.

We first met them at the Stop the Steal/Jericho March in Washington DC, following the elections.

A Chinese woman came over to where we were sitting and put the Epoch Times in my hand.  She said, “You’ll want this.”

I’m not used to people coming up to me and putting something in my hand with such an enigmatic explanation! 

She must have registered my surprise because she further explained, “In China, we suffer extreme repression.  If we help you win this fight, it will help us win our fight with the CCP,” or something to that effect.

She was right about me wanting that paper, as it is one of a kind.  It’s the only digital paper I’ve found that consistently publishes the truth and they have broken a lot of major stories. 

As an example, the Epoch Times was the first to interview Dr. Robert Malone, who did the initial studies on mRNA.  It was because of this early interview I realized there was something to be concerned about with regard to the vaccines.

After I updated my subscription, I received an email from their CEO on how the paper came into existence.  I think it’s worth sharing.  

As broken as we are, we still represent freedom, and it is incumbent on us to preserve this so we can continue to be the spark that lights up the world.  If that spark goes out, all the financial assistance in the world won’t be enough. 

You want to help other people?  Protect our freedoms in this country come this November. 

Dear Reader,

Thank you for your recent registration with The Epoch Times. I hope you have just a moment to spare because I’d like to tell you exactly what you’ve signed up for. Why? Because The Epoch Times is different from any other news source in America.

My name is John Tang, and I’m the founder and CEO of The Epoch Times. I didn’t set out to publish a newspaper. In 1993, I had no money, but I had something even better. As a young doctoral candidate from China, I had arrived in the United States and discovered what it meant to be free.

I found living in America to be a life-changing experience. For the first time, I could speak freely, but I was saddened to think of people in my home country who would face grave repercussions for simply speaking out about their own government. I felt a calling to do something.

And so in the year 2000, The Epoch Times was born with the purpose of telling the world about the destructiveness of socialism and communism, and specifically, to expose the disinformation and human rights violations of the Chinese Communist Party and how it works to infiltrate other cultures.

From this humble beginning arose a great mission: to create a news source that would bring back the great American legacy of traditional journalism. As a media dedicated to truth, we pledged to report the news factually, honestly, and completely, without a political agenda. Today, we publish in 21 languages across 35 countries—always reporting the facts and upholding the best of what makes us human.  

The past 20 years haven’t been easy. In communist China, it’s not uncommon for reporters who criticize the government to simply disappear. In Hong Kong, thugs have started a fire in our printing plant and smashed our presses with sledgehammers, in separate incidents. One of our Hong Kong reporters was recently attacked by another thug wielding a baseball bat. In America, some of our competitors in the mainstream media have attempted to smear us time and again. None of this has stopped us from striving to report the news precisely as it happened, unembellished by our own opinions. In fact, the more we are attacked for reporting truthfully, the stronger we become.

The Epoch Times is a media on a journey to bring traditional journalism back to America, where it is sorely needed, and to a world that is desperate for truth. We have set our goals high, and we know that we can’t accomplish this great mission without you. On behalf of our reporters, writers, editors, and researchers around the world, I invite you to join us on this journey. 

In Truth and Tradition,

John Tang

The Epoch Times



  1. George Michalopulos says

    As a side-benefit, I must say that the level of writing in The Epoch Times is exceptional. I still have the issue in which a writer took issue with Darwinism and I must say, it was very persuasive (and from a scientific level for that matter).

  2. Mark E. Fisus says

    The Epoch Times is run by the Falun Gong cult, which has been grievously persecuted by the ChiComs. For that they deserve our sympathy, but their reporting is unreliable.

  3. Yes, in NYC they even have a TV station NTDTV (New Tang Dynasty).
    They seem to be taking over the Moonie franchise.

    • Gail Sheppard says

      NTD practices meditation and slow-moving energy exercises and regulated breathing. Kind of like what you’d find in thousands of books you’ll see in the self-help section in any bookstore.

      They’re supportive of traditional Chinese culture, as am I (you should see my home), and western classical arts, and devote extensive news coverage to Chinese human rights issues, scrutinizing abuses of power by the Chinese Communist Party. The name was chosen to invoke the ancient Tang dynasty that the company considers “the golden age of Chinese spirituality and civilization … known for its high moral standards and unparalleled cultural achievements.”

      Yeah, Joe, really crazy people??? (Snark)

      Were you trying to discredit them by associating them with a group in 1975 where panicked parents took the Moon’s Unification Church to be a cult and kidnapped their adult children off the streets, bundled them into vans, and spirited them away to hotel rooms and secret hideaways for deprogramming from the “brainwashing” they had received?

      If so, knock it off.

      • Falun Gong believes in reincarnation and polytheism too, so it’s hardly just breathing practices. Breathing practices, to what end? Some could say that hesychasm is “just breathing practices” too, but we know it’s something a lot deeper.

        • Gail Sheppard says

          I never explored the personal lives of the people behind the Washington Post or the New York Times but I used to read them, too. I wasn’t a fan of Rupert Murdoch, but read his stuff. Same with CNN and MSNBC. They’re all trash now.

          The Epoch Times prints the truth. They’re fighting the CCP. They were “Johnny on the Spot” with COVID. I even think one of them texted me to thank me for the post but it was all in Chinese so I don’t know!

          A lot of people are fans of Elon Musk since he took over Twitter, but I bet no one knows or cares what he believes, if anything.

          I can judge what kind of new source they are, but God will judge their hearts, as He will ours. I can’t afford to be too picky about how far they take their exercise practices.

          • “What Gail said !”, as they say.

            I subscribe to the Epoch Times, too. No matter what the editorial staff believe in, they’re on our side against the Demonocrat Party, the Western Wokesters and the Communist Party of China. They support religious sentiment and traditional values. That’s good enough for me.

            “For he who is not against us is on our side.” (Mark 9:40)

            • George Michalopulos says

              Amen. Since we’re speaking about the personal spiritual beliefs about journals, why not “go there” regarding The Christian Science Monitor, one of the establishment journals?

  4. Google: “Bill Gates meets Keir Starmer”
    and see how many results you get reading:
    “Keir Starmer meets Bill Gates in Parliament”.
    Page after page after page in identical wording
    from ‘newspaper’ after ‘newspaper’ after…etc.
    Not only is Keir Starmer Prime Minister designate,
    he is also a member of the Trilateral Commission.
    I expect he was taking instruction…

  5. I really appreciate The Epoch Times, too. I’ve been subscribed for over a year. I saw them advertised on Youtube, then a paper showed up in every driveway in my neighborhood. It’s not how I learned about the EUA injections. I was already plugged in to the whistleblowing when that started through a nearly 40-year old consumer advocacy non-profit my children’s home birth doctors referred patients to. After passage of the “1986 Va***ne Act”, our doctors were concerned about potential harms from the increasingly bloated childhood schedule and wanted parents to be fully informed.

  6. This Paul Pelosi thing may have legs

    RedState is reporting that the assailant’s home was covered in rainbow and BLM art. The neighbors definitely saw it as a left wing site. The police story about him liking Qanon, etc., may be bs.

    Apparently, the attack happened in the presence of the police who had been called by Pelosi and let in by someone. In any case, Pelosi and the assailant were evidently both in their underwear when the police got there. I’ve read that glass was broken from inside and that the housekeeper knew the name of the assailant but can’t confirm it.

    One Twitter wit suggested that Pelosi engaged a male escort and afterwards they fought over payment. That actually fits the facts as we can confirm them at the moment. This sounds very much like a domestic violence call.

    Breitbart had this on it which had the actual read from the dispatcher who took the call:

    I’ll give you three guesses . . .

    • Gail Sheppard says
      • I edited my comment with more info but apparently it posted before the “save” went through. Breitbart had a story with the readout of the call Pelosi made to the dispatcher – the dispatcher’s account. At first he said he didn’t know the “male” but then he fumbled and said that his name was “David” and “a friend”.

        I’m not going to try to reconstruct my full post. If you have it, you may want to post it. It’s not that important that Nancy’s hubby is a switch hitter.

        • Gail Sheppard says

          A friend, huh? I wonder how long it will take for that to come out. No one is reporting the real news anymore.

          • Well, Paul Pelosi is aged and presumably closeted. So the question is whether the Chinese knew and if they have used it.

          • George Michalopulos says

            FWIW, 85% of the people don’t even watch MSM anymore.

            It’s the journalistic/informational equivalent of Gresham’s Law: bad money drives out good.

            • It’s going viral now. Elon freed the twitter bird. He even retweeted an article about the incident which has incurred a plethora of wrath from the libs.


              As they say, the remedy for bad speech is more speech. God knows what actually happened but based on the solid facts we do know, there is no doubt that something is being covered up. Gateway Pundit says the right wing sites attributed to the assailant were fake, created Friday and taken down yesterday.

              • George Michalopulos says

                Misha, it never ceases to amaze me, how the Left projects their evil onto the Right.

                Think of it, nobody on the Right –especially MAGA types–have this kind of avocation as the assailant.

        • Apparently the guy had a crazy Russian ex-wife or something, so Putin’s definitely in on it, that rascal.

        • Super confusing details being reported all over. Maybe some mental health issues involved.

          Not ruling out the possibility he was an escort or actual friend, but he just *might* have been trying to de-escalate a threatening situation by talking about his “friend.” Time will tell.

          • We’re not going to get the truth before the election.

            The story’s not PP’s proclivities. I personally could care less. The story is the cover up and the effort to blame the Right for this. If it were to break before the election it would just be another nail in the coffin which the Fake News will simply not report. Even Fox seems onsides on this one.
