Tell us about yourself
Freedom of the press and humanity are the foundation of Epoch Times; 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.
