Communism is estimated to have killed at least 100 million people, yet its crimes have not been fully compiled and its ideology still persists. The Epoch Times seeks to expose the history and beliefs of this movement, which has been a source of tyranny and destruction since it emerged. We believe that investigating and exposing the truth is the only way that we can remain safe.

Three weeks before the CCP admitted that anything was happening, The Epoch Times was among the first to expose the seriousness and scale of the SARS epidemic. Our earliest reporting on SARS dated back to Jan. 20, 2003 and was only in Chinese. Jiang Yanyong(photo) is a Chinese physician who publicized a coverup of the SARS in China.
A few months after our founding, 10 Epoch Times staff members in China were jailed and sentenced to long prison terms—ranging from three to 10 years—for exposing communist repression and human rights abuses. Most were tortured.MORE
The Epoch Times was started in 2000 in Atlanta, Georgia, by Chinese-Americans who had fled communist China. Their purpose was to bring truthful and uncensored news to Chinese people worldwide—people oppressed by lies, violence, and propaganda. The English edition of The Epoch Times was started in 2004 also seeking to be an independent voice that delivers uncensored and truthful information.
In December 2000, a few months after we began publishing, 10 of our staff members in China were jailed and tortured. They were sentenced to prison terms ranging from 3 to 10 years. This forced us to work largely underground in China.
Despite these challenges, we’ve remained committed from the beginning to getting the truth out against considerable opposition—this determination will forever be part of The Epoch Times ethos.
In the face of financial, physical, and cyber attacks from one of the world’s most tyrannical regimes, The Epoch Times has remained committed to honest and traditional journalism in fulfilling its duty to inform the public.
We investigate issues overlooked, or avoided by other media outlets. We don't spin the news, push biased agendas, or create false narratives. We give the facts and the context to allow readers to make up their own minds.
Our reporting covers a wide range of topics, including national politics, holistic health, foreign affairs, traditional culture, immigration, and food and lifestyle.
We see the global cultural and moral destruction wrought by communism as the most overlooked story of the 21st century. So we take special care to expose this deadly ideology and the universal harm it has caused.
In all that we do, we make an earnest attempt to hold ourselves to the highest standards of integrity. This is our promise to you.
