"The Epoch Times seeks to restore honest journalism, the purpose of a free press."

Wall Street Journal @WSJ publishes op-ed by @EpochTimes publisher Stephen Gregory in response to misleading @NBCNews and @MSNBC attacks. (Thread 👇) wsj.com/articles/nbc-n…
@WSJ @NBCNews @MSNBC The #EpochTimes is a nonpartisan, independent media company that publishes a daily newspaper and website. Our motto is “Truth and Tradition.”

Last week #NBCNews and its sister network #MSNBC launched a series of irresponsible and misleading attacks on us.
The network led with the claim that we have spent “more than any organization outside of the Trump campaign itself” in the past 6 months on “pro-Trump advertisements.”

NBC refers to ads promoting our print subscriptions—typically short, lively videos featuring recent articles.

Facebook has banned conservative news outlet Epoch Times from advertising on its platform.

Shocking, I know...

We at The Epoch Times were surprised ourselves at witnessing what appears to be a new low that media are willing to drop to in an effort to quash voices they don’t agree with. theepochtimes.com/why-nbc-msnbcs…

Dear readers,

As you know, The Epoch Times is a proudly independent news organization dedicated to truthful reporting.

Thanks to your support, we are now America’s fastest-growing newspaper. (Thread 👇) theepochtimes.com/why-nbc-msnbcs…
It appears, however, that not everyone is thrilled with our growth and our dedication to restoring honest journalism.

@NBCNews & @MSNBC dedicated a good amount of their time attempting to discredit us.

We were surprised at witnessing what appears to be a new low…
…that media are willing to drop to in an effort to quash voices they don’t agree with.

@MSNBC host Rachel @Maddow, known for her biased coverage of the Trump admin and for getting the Trump–Russia collusion story wrong, dedicated 30 minutes of prime-time television to us.

On Aug 20 @MSNBC’s Rachel #Maddow did a half-hour segment attacking The Epoch Times based on an NBC news “investigative report” from earlier that day. (Thread 👇)
The crux of #Maddow's attack is an attempt to conflate programming of the NTD digital show Edge of Wonder, an entertainment show that explicitly focuses on the most audacious conspiracy theories out there, with #EpochTimes journalism.
We explained the fact that Edge of Wonder is an entertainment show not connected with #EpochTimes to the relevant #NBC journalists in a Jun 20 statement. They chose to ignore this.

Seeing the success of The Epoch Times as America’s fastest-growing newspaper, @NBCNews has published a hit-piece that is riddled with inaccuracies, blatant errors, and misrepresentations.

@NBCNews NBC News mischaracterizes our subscription campaigns for our print newspaper. We provided @NBCNews with a statement back in June to clarify this, but they chose to ignore it—against well established journalistic practices. theepochtimes.com/our-response-t…
While The Epoch Times has been at the forefront of covering the actions taken by officials in the Obama admin targeting the Trump campaign during the 2016 election, @NBCNews is refusing to look at verifiable evidence and simply dismisses this reporting as a “conspiracy theory.”

RARE color photos from #WW2 offer a chilling look at evil that should inform the way we see #China’s modern-day #ConcentrationCamps in #EastTurkistan (what Communists call “#Xinjiang”).

True evil isn’t some distant black & white memory; it’s alive today, in living color.
… I see only two key differences between what #Nazi Germany did to Jews, Catholics, Roma, LGBT people, disabled people, & so many others, and what Communist #China‘s doing to #Uyghurs, #Kazakhs, #Kyrgyz, #Uzbeks, #Tatars, #FalunGong, & so many others…
… (1) #Nazi Germany forced people to outwardly identify themselves w/ symbols (inc. the Yellow Star of David), whilst #China’s authorities seem to prefer secret digital records; & (2) the #Nazis killed quickly, whilst China’s authorities appear to be killing slowly… for now.

1/ Each of us must stand loud and clear for the rights and dignity of all people. That means calling attention to #HumanRights abuses and demanding change.

For the past 20 years, #FalunGong practitioners have experienced appalling & unacceptable human rights abuses in #China.
2/ Banned by the Chinese government in July 1999, many Falun Gong practitioners have been subjected to arbitrary detention, torture, forced labor, and constant harassment.
3/ On this sad anniversary, the Chinese government should end the persecution of Falun Gong and allow an independent and transparent U.N. investigation into the human rights abuses suffered by Falun Gong over the past two decades.

‼️ BREAKING:
Last week, @EpochTimes was contacted by two NBC reporters who posed a series of highly inappropriate questions about the religious beliefs of our staff.

Here is our open letter response. theepochtimes.com/our-response-t…
The NBC reporters questioned the religious beliefs of some of our @EpochTimes staff members, sought to discredit their beliefs, attacked our journalism based on personal opinion rather than objective analysis, and even sought out information on the personal lives of our staff.
Unfortunately, the bane of #Journalism today is the all-too-common practice of writing news to conform to a pre-existing narrative or agenda. The best journalism of the past had the truth as its standard, not political advantage.

US State Dept is seeking to block Chinese officials involved in carrying out the persecution of #FalunGong from entering the US, according to a statement from a US website that acts as a clearinghouse on the persecution of the spiritual practice. theepochtimes.com/us-could-bar-e…
Falun Gong has been treated most harshly. Supporters outside China claim 2,000 have died in custody since 1999, and the UN alleges that the group's members feature disproportionately among those who have suffered torture and abuse. theguardian.com/world/2009/jul…
Falun Dafa Information Center estimates that millions of #FalunGong adherents have been arrested and detained since the persecution started, often enduring torture and abuse while imprisoned. theepochtimes.com/persecution-of…

New Horrors: #China Harvesting Muslim Organs in Concentration Camps - China is removing live organs from executed Uyghur Muslims & markets them as “halal” & distributes them to a network to wealthy Saudi clients & others 👎🇨🇳👎 @UyghurCongress @AidUyghur medium.com/@cjwerleman/ne…
This week, UK lawmakers warned citizens desperate for transplant operations that they could be unknowingly “playing a role in the profiteering of atrocities against inmates in the Communist government’s network if prisons and detention camps.”
The authors also observe how “another medical witness described being forced to administer blood tests of Uyghur political prisoners on behalf of a handful of ageing, high-ranking, Chinese Communist Party officials who needed tissue-matching organs.”
