The Epoch Times
We are free from the influence of any government, corporation, or political party—this is what makes us different from other media organizations. Our goal is to bring our readers accurate information so they can form their own opinions about the most significant topics of our time.
We don’t follow the unhealthy trend of agenda-driven journalism prevalent in today’s media environment.
Instead, we use our principles of Truth and Tradition as our guiding light. We highlight in our reporting the best of humanity, the valuable lessons of history, and traditions that are beneficial for society.
The Epoch Times was founded in North America in the year 2000 in response to communist repression and censorship in China. Our founders, Chinese immigrants who themselves had fled communism, sought to create an independent media to bring the world uncensored and truthful information.
In recognition of our outstanding reporting, our publisher was awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal in 2012. Our early coverage of the SARS outbreak earned our Chinese edition a national award from the National Ethnic Press and Media Council of Canada. Our reporters have won numerous awards by the Society of Professional Journalists and the New York Press Association.
The Epoch Times’ media network currently covers 21 languages and 33 countries.
