The Epoch Times strives to be the most trusted global media as we uplift the world with integrity, compassion, and hope.
We are dedicated to seeking the truth through insightful and independent journalism.
Standing outside of political interests, our starting point and our goal is to create a media for the public benefit, and to be truly responsible to society.
We believe that for America to thrive, journalism must return to its traditional values.
We use our freedom to investigate issues overlooked—or avoided—by other media outlets. We seek to highlight solutions and what’s good in society rather than what divides us. We report respectfully, compassionately, and rigorously.
We stand against the destruction wrought by communism, including the harm done to cultures around the world. We are inspired in this by our own experience.
The Epoch Times was founded in 2000 to bring honest and uncensored news to people oppressed by the lies and violence in communist China. Several months after starting, 10 of our reporters were arrested in China. They were given 5-10 year prison terms for the crime of reporting the truth. All were tortured.
Over the last 18 years, we have weathered physical, financial, and cyber attacks—all of which failed to stop us from acting on our mission: to use traditional, upright and true journalism to keep the public informed.
We still believe that journalism is a noble vocation, but only when it genuinely seeks to serve its communities and help them to flourish. In all that we do, we will hold ourselves to the highest standards of integrity. This is our promise to you.
