Stephen Gregory, the Epoch Times publisher:

"We were surprised to learn from media reports that Facebook has blocked The Epoch Times ability to advertise for print-subscriptions. This appears to be a response to NBC News’ reporting on us.
Despite a vast “dark money” political conspiracy alleged in NBC News reporting, the reality is much simpler.

The Epoch Times has been running a very popular digital marketing campaign for our print-newspaper subscriptions.
After Facebook, in July this year, blocked our ability to advertise on our main Epoch Times page, it did not provide us with a reason despite multiple requests for clarification...
Since then, The Epoch Times has been publishing its advertising on a number of other, new Facebook pages. Without exception, these ads were overtly Epoch Times advertisements for our subscriptions...
NBC’s representation of our print-subscription advertisements is blatantly incorrect. None of our advertising was done to “obfuscate” the connection to The Epoch Times; all the advertising was clearly for Epoch Times print subscriptions.
Further, NBC News and MSNBC content about us has been riddled with inaccuracies, blatant errors, and misrepresentations... The Epoch Times is an independently owned media and not owned or operated by Falun Gong, as we clarified in our statement to NBC News.
The Epoch Times was originally founded by Chinese Americans who had fled communism. They believed in truthfulness, compassion, and tolerance, the principles of Falun Gong...
Our reporters in China faced severe retribution for their work. Ten of our staff members were arrested and given extensive prison terms for their commitment to independent media."
