Our Story to tell the truth

Freedom of the press and humanity are the foundation of Epoch Times as almost all world-wide Chinese media are controlled or infiltrated by Chinese Communist Party; our beginnings hailed from a great need to provide uncensored news to a people immersed in propaganda and censorship in China.

Having witnessed events like Tiananmen Square and the persecution of the spiritual group Falun Gong, and at a great risk to themselves and their loved ones, a group of Chinese-Americans started publishing Epoch Times in the Chinese language in the U.S. Some reporters in China were jailed, and some suffered severe torture. 

Integrity and truthfulness in reporting, together with the stories that really matter, are cornerstones to Epoch Times.

The first English edition launched online in 2003 followed by the first print edition in 2004. Our beginnings have instilled in Epoch Times staff an unwavering commitment to objective reporting and socially responsible business practices, as well as respect for human rights and freedom. 


Why ‘Epoch’?

The founders applied the Chinese name “Da Ji Yuan,” which translates to “the grand epoch.” So the name of this publication alludes to a grand or great period of history, applied to the current time.

The vision of the Epoch Times is simple and at the heart of what media and journalism were meant to do: to tell the truth.

Read our publications, support our media group, and advertise with us, for telling the truth is what we do.
