About The Epoch Times

The Epoch Times is part of the Epoch Media Group, a New York City-based nonprofit. Across our Facebook properties, we engage more than 55 million readers. If you don’t know about us, our founding story is in itself pretty inspiring.

Our founders are Chinese-Americans who first experienced the realities of the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre, then the ongoing persecution of the Falun Gong meditation practice in China. Having lived under a regime of strict government censorship, massive disinformation, and propaganda campaigns, they saw that even media outside of China were reporting disinformation as fact. Our founders felt duty-bound to share the truth with the world, including stories of goodness, compassion, and selflessness in the face of extreme adversity. With this, our media was born. We were exposing “fake news” long before it was in fashion to do so.

Since then, our media has grown to 21 languages online and in print, and is recognized as one of the most far-reaching independent publishers on the planet.
