About Us

The United States is entering a moment of extreme division and turmoil: conservatives and liberals are in conflict, traditional values clash with progressivism, communist and anti-communist forces are in a cold war, there is a war between Russia and Ukraine, and there is a nuclear threat. Inflation and skyrocketing prices have led to a world that has never been more chaotic and confusing.

The media, which used to show mutual respect, is now severely divided. Left-wing and right-wing media accuse each other of being fake news, and the labels of extreme left and extreme right are thrown around indiscriminately. Journalists and media outlets are no longer respected and trusted as they once were. If you want to report the truth, you have to be very brave, like a warrior, because you will be attacked, canceled, fired, and sued, more than in any other period in history. We know that a significant number of Americans lack confidence and optimism in the media. However, we have hope that we can regain the trust of the American people through honesty and integrity.

Despite facing numerous challenges and setbacks, we have never lost hope in our mission to report the truth. Our commitment to journalistic integrity has not wavered, even in the face of adversity.

Two decades ago, the founders of The Epoch Times came to the United States with the dream of freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and the pursuit of happiness. We deeply admire the founding fathers of America, were inspired by the American people, and believe that a nation founded on rights and virtues is a great hope for us and our families. We established a non-profit media company to report the truth independently of any corporate, political, or financial agenda. The Party in China used to say "your voice is our voice," but it was a lie. Our aim is not to enforce our perspective on you, but to amplify your voice.

Today, we are being attacked, arrested, canceled, and sued, not only by the Chinese Communist Party, but also by U.S. government agencies, big tech companies, and the mainstream media. We've struggled for years, facing unimaginable difficulties—sleeping in the office, working seven days a week, spending months away from our families in cities across America, and even decades away from loved ones left behind overseas. Despite facing numerous challenges and setbacks, we have never lost hope in our mission to report the truth. Our commitment to journalistic integrity has not wavered, even in the face of adversity. Our offices have been broken into and only a few years ago our printing presses were torched, but we have continued to persevere. The outpouring of support from millions of readers and friends who continue to encourage us has given us the strength to carry on. We are inspired by their commitment to upholding the values of freedom and democracy, and we will not be silenced in our pursuit of the truth. They share Epoch Times with their friends and family. We receive heartwarming letters and donations every day. We often see the hope of America and the world's future in these kind men, women, and children. With the understanding that "Truth Brings Hope," our beliefs motivate us to work tirelessly day and night.

Our Outlook


To be recognized as the ‘paper of record,’ the world’s most trusted and admired media company, and the organization that will restore, by its example, the best practices and highest principles of journalism.


The Epoch Times Association is dedicated to seeking the truth through insightful and independent journalism, standing outside of political interests and the pursuit of profit, in order to serve the public benefit and be truly responsible to society. We inform readers about current, important topics; broaden and uplift minds; and promote rational and balanced debate, as is critical to fostering a healthy republic and a compassionate society. We investigate issues overlooked or avoided by other media outlets, focus on what is good in society rather than on what divides people, and report respectfully, compassionately, and vigorously. Our mission is inspired by our founders’ personal experiences in communist China and their efforts to bring honest, uncensored news despite oppression and violence.

Our Values


Adhering to the standards of factual accuracy and impartiality, thus delivering on a commitment to transparency and fair, objective communication.


Empathizing with others; refraining from retaliation or personal attacks; engaging in respectful discourse about constructive solutions to common problems faced by those of varied--sometimes opposing--viewpoints.


Supporting and enlightening our readers, taking their well-being and human dignity into account, by writing for them--about the things that matter most to them.


Acting in accord with the ethical ideals we proclaim; refusing to compromise on matters of truth, accuracy, impartiality or justice.

Social Responsibility

Our Story
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 practice of investigative excellence. That’s why The Epoch Times is the world’s fastest-growing, most dependable media company.

A article on the origins of communism we published in 2017.
By going back to its roots, our stories strive to reestablish Truth and Tradition as the essential pillars of authentic journalism. Telling the truth is the cause which prompted a few Chinese Americans in an Atlanta basement to found 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 colleagues in the legacy media.

But beyond just reporting the news, our team is cultivating a return to balance and positive 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. Now, we’ve all experienced a multi-year lockdown of our basic liberties—including free speech. So you know that standing up for the truth isn’t always easy. We get that. Since our humble beginnings at the dawn of the 21st century—when we hand-assembled our first newspaper issue in an Atlanta basement, we have been targeted by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) for our reporting on its crimes against humanity. Our reporters have been attacked, jailed, and defamed. Our Hong Kong press was set on fire in 2019, and they’ve assaulted our staffers and vandalized our newsstands beyond China’s borders. But we continue to overcome routine censorship, deplatforming, and targeting by the legacy media, big government, and big tech. We are stronger today than we were over two decades ago.

Our 2004 editorial series “Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party” inspired a grassroots movement for Chinese 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. Our dedication to the truth has earned us a network of underground informants in China who relay accurate information to us, especially when the CCP is violating the rights of Chinese citizens. In spite of the force of an entire party against us, The Epoch Times has become a multinational media 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, knowledge. 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—that’s what keeps all of us going at The Epoch Times.

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 deeply 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.

Q & A
What are fundamental differences between The Epoch Times and other media?

#1 Standards
The Epoch Times is the first and only media that exposes the true nature, impact, and ultimate goal of communism. We explain its damage to moral foundations and Eastern and Western traditions. We also discuss the outcomes of socialism and its impact on the economic and political stability of countries. We believe that the media has a duty to be upright and responsible to society.

#2 Fearlessly Independent
While six corporations own 90 percent of media outlets in the United States, the fastest-growing independent news media in America, The Epoch Times, is free from the interests of political parties, governments, and corporations. Our news media has never endorsed a candidate for office. We receive our funding from our readers. Our writers have the freedom and the responsibility to tell the truth.

#3 Printing Stories That Need Telling
With the goal of becoming the foremost newspaper of record, we encourage our journalists to explore stories others don't. We have a particular devotion to publishing stories that are censored either by Big Tech or mainstream media. We are restoring the voices of “silenced” Americans.

#4 Morality Focused
Our work to revive Truth and Tradition can only be accomplished if morality is our guide. We strive to be a leader in ethical journalism and see our work as an expression of our character. We report critically on ideas and cover purposeful solutions. We do not engage in personal attacks. Readers trust us because of our unrelenting commitment to these values.

# 5 Mission Driven
22 years ago, a few Chinese immigrants in Atlanta felt an obligation to counter propaganda with facts. They witnessed a human rights catastrophe unfolding before their eyes and founded The Epoch Times to expose the perpetrators, the Chinese Communist Party. Two decades later, our countless exposés have inspired millions of Americans to take action. We are unwavering in our belief that honest journalism is integral to justice.
