Fundamental Differences Between The Epoch Times and Other Media

Some people think The Epoch Times is just another news media. But did you know:

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

The Epoch Times is independent of any influence from corporations, governments, or political parties.
While six corporations own 90 percent of media outlets in the United States (according to Business Insider), our only goal is to bring our readers accurate information and to be responsible to you.

The Epoch Times is nonpartisan and values-based
We believe true journalism is based on moral principles. We focus on important issues and on policies and their impact, not partisanship. We report the truth in the midst of the biased media environment. We don’t follow the unethical trend of agenda-driven journalism, but instead, use our principles of Truth and Tradition as a guiding light to report honestly.

“Subversion is one of the most serious, most pervasive, and most damaging threats facing our society today.”

Joshua Philipp, senior investigative reporter, The Epoch Times

Subscribers Speak: Exposing Subversion

[The Epoch Times] is the only voice in America that correctly identifies the problem: communist subversion. All other problems are secondary. It is a breath of fresh air in an environment of fake, politicized news.

Ronald Larson

Truth and Tradition is a great tagline. Truth in reporting (and truth to ourselves) is so valuable (and rare) these days. Equally critical is tradition and honor of our histories and culture, that gives us a frame of reference through which we can identify truth from lies, and right from wrong.

Josh Henderson

Yes, The Epoch Times seems to be aligned with my core beliefs and principles while not sacrificing journalistic integrity at the same time. It is not filled with fluff nor does it try to influence how I think — that would be insulting to me if it did, as other media sources have a strong tendency to do.

Rafael Cruz, MD

The truth and whole story. No opinion. I can make up my mind without your opinion. Other papers try to make me follow their opinion! Will have none of that or lies!

Donna Downing

You seem to report the facts impartially, you verify and identify your sources, and you do superb investigative reporting. In short, you have brought back true and independent journalism.

John Walson

I really like that Epoch Times has more true health related articles than most other news organizations.


ET covers more traditional topics, is patriotic, and generally represents a conservative view. Articles are researched for accuracy.

Richard Naff

We in America need all the rational and honest news we can get. Our world is awash with inveigling socialists who will try anything, from irrational to criminal, to bring the USA down. Keep printing a free press; it is your right to do so and my privilege to read it.

Ronald Lyons

Your paper is wonderful and I really enjoy it. You report things the mainstream media ignores, your articles are fact-based with verifiable sources, your articles are not politically biased. It’s what journalism is supposed to be. I have been sharing the print edition with friends after I read them.


ET does not push a socialist agenda. I also appreciate the faith-based worldview (of various traditions), simply the acknowledgement that people hold to and practice faith in an era of mainstream declining faith and morals. I like that I find news here first and sometimes never see in most or all other media outlets. Thank you.
