Freedom of the press and humanity is the core of the New Era (Epoch Times); our beginnings were born from the critical need to post unfiltered news to those propaganda and filtering in China.
After witnessing events like the Tiananmen Square and the suppression of Falun Gong spiritual group, a group of Chinese Americans began to publish Epoch Times in Chinese in the United States despite their high-risk behavior and threatened the safety of themselves and their families. Some journalists in China have been jailed and some have been tortured.
Integrity and honesty in reporting news with significant stories are the foundation of the New Age.
The first English edition of the Epoch Times was launched online in 2003 followed by a print edition in 2004. Our starting point has grown an unwavering commitment among Epoch Times employees towards objective journalism and responsible business practices in addition to respect for human rights and freedom.
New Era began being published in Malaysia in October 10, 2016.
