From @JasperFakkert - Why NBC, MSNBC’s Reporting on The Epoch Times Is Textbook Fake News

"Thanks to your support, we are now America’s fastest-growing newspaper.
It appears, however, that not everyone is thrilled with our growth and our dedication to restoring honest journalism."
"MSNBC host Rachel Maddow, known for her biased coverage of the Trump administration and for getting the Trump–Russia collusion story wrong, dedicated a whole 30 minutes of prime-time television to us on Aug. 20."
"Maddow and the NBC reporters dismiss but do not provide a single point of factual rebuttal to our extensive coverage of the actions by Obama-era officials to target the Trump campaign in 2016, which have become known as “Spygate.”
"Maddow’s intent to discredit The Epoch Times and its reporting was revealed through her bizarre depiction of the Spygate scandal, alongside her repeated attempts to conflate our journalism with content from [an] unrelated show."
"NBC News also sought to intentionally misrepresent a popular digital marketing campaign Epoch Times is running to sell print subscriptions. In the video ads, we discuss The Epoch Times’ editorial and feature content and encourage people to subscribe to our print newspaper."
"It appears that because NBC News and MSNBC disagree with our independent and fact-based journalism, they have resorted to these unwarranted attacks."
"The Epoch Times was founded by Chinese Americans who had fled communism. In America, they saw the opportunity to create an independent media that would benefit people around the world."
"The founders of The Epoch Times believed in truthfulness, compassion, and tolerance, the principles of Falun Gong. This is a fact that we have never shied away from."
"Unable to attack The Epoch Times’ reporting based on factual inaccuracies, NBC News and MSNBC opted to dip into the well of 20 years of Chinese Communist Party hate propaganda."
"In such low attacks, and in the brazen misrepresentation of our subscription ads and our Spygate reporting, one sees the very image of what has come to be called “fake news.”
Fakkert: "I believe that this and similar betrayals of journalism are why so many people are turning to The Epoch Times for our independent and factual reporting."
"Our pledge to you, our readers, is that we will not waver from our commitment to truth, and will continue to bring you the highest quality of journalism."
