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.
In her segment, @Maddow presents a carefully crafted picture based on false claims that The Epoch Times is a purveyor of “conspiracy theories.”

As #Maddow and the staff at @NBCNews know themselves, nothing could be further from the truth.
#Maddow and the #NBC reporters dismiss but do not provide a single point of factual rebuttal to our extensive coverage on the actions by Obama-era officials targeting the Trump campaign in 2016, which have become known as “#Spygate.”
Instead, #Maddow engages in a description of #Spygate that borders on lunacy, saying the scandal is “something about Donald Trump saving America from ‘satanic Democratic pedophiles.’”

The reality is that The Epoch Times has become a recognized leader in its coverage of…
…the #Spygate scandal. The tireless reporting by our team of reporters based on actual evidence— including court docs, congressional testimony, and interviews—has received wide acclaim from readers and validation from other media, including @NYTimes, which cited our coverage.
In a further attempt to discredit us, #Maddow tried to mix The Epoch Times’ reporting with content from an entertainment show called “Edge of Wonder,” which is produced by #NTD Television.

Maddow and the #NBC reporters intentionally chose to ignore our written statement.

#Maddow’s intent to discredit #EpochTimes' reporting was revealed through her bizarre depiction of the #Spygate scandal, alongside her repeated attempts to conflate our #Journalism with content from an unrelated entertainment show.
#NBCNews also sought to intentionally misrepresent a popular digital marketing campaign The 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.
#Facebook has specific rules for advertising that require everyone—including publishers like The Epoch Times—to label content as political advertising if it touches on social issues or politics, something some news content naturally does.
Many other media run advertising campaigns for their content and products in the same category on #Facebook.

Examples:
@Nytimes: facebook.com/ads/library/?a…
@CNN: facebook.com/ads/library/?a…
#NBC and #MSNBC misrepresented our print-subscription advertisements despite our clarifying this in our June 20 statement, which they again chose to ignore.

It appears that because @NBCNews and @MSNBC disagree with our independent and fact-based #Journalism, they have resorted to these unwarranted attacks.

But the most disturbing part of the coverage by #Maddow’s show and #NBCNews is their deliberate effort to attack a group of…
…religious believers currently persecuted in #China.

This comes at a time when tens of millions in China still don’t have #ReligiousFreedom and face arrest, illegal incarceration in labor camps, torture, and even forced organ harvesting, for practicing their beliefs.
The Epoch Times was originally founded by #Chinese Americans who 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 #FalunGong. This is a fact that we have never shied away from. And it is exactly this commitment to truth that can be seen in our reporting.
Unable to attack The #EpochTimes’ reporting based on factual inaccuracies, #NBCNews and #MSNBC opted to dip into the well of 20 years of #Chinese #Communist Party hate #Propaganda aimed at demonizing #FalunGong.
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 #FakeNews. I believe this and similar betrayals of #Journalism are why so many people are turning to Epoch Times…
…for our independent and factual reporting.

#Immigrants have played an enormous role in building this great nation. It is a country built on the principle of #ReligiousFreedom. As such, we see The #EpochTimes’ story as a quintessential American story.
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.
