Before this COVID event, I was a NYT subscriber. Now I am an Epoch Times subscriber instead... I am sure many others have made the same transition, in search of a source that provides real investigative reporting rather than the "mainstream narrative" propaganda.

I was told awhile ago, when I first started sharing articles on Substack, that it was a site for “loser” writers. The ones who could get their pieces in the mainstream.

I am pretty content to hang out with “losers”.

A glowing review.

Between The Epoch Times, Just the News and Substack...I feel I get a fair and balanced coverage of most anything I'm interested in. I also, often, find items I didn't know I should know about. Which make them all the more valuable IMO. 🙂

I subscribe to the Epoch Times, but will say, as with ALL publications, you still need to do your due diligence and never take one publication as your ultimate source. Case in point: The Epoch Times is founded around Falun Gong, which was outlawed in China. You will note that all of the Epoch Times’ coverage of China is negative. Every publication has a bias of some sort. Be vigilant.

The catastrophe of the United States is currently camouflaged as an impasse: the evil Democrats represented by Biden and his manipulators doing everything they can to destroy the nation and to annihilate the lives of American people. In reality it’s worse, much worse.

Democrats have succeeded overwhelmingly in defeating the conservatives and Christians in every front. Not because Democrats are stronger, but because the conservatives don’t believe the existential crisis is here and now. We will have no nation and no protection.

Within a year the Democrats will not hide their aggression anymore. A new dictatorship will sweep throughout the nation, and it will be too late to fight back.

"In our era in which independent thinkers have largely been confined to Substack (God bless it) we are are grateful to the guys at the Epoch Times for extending the reach of our research and reporting. "

Will the fact that truth and wisdom, so far at least, isn't completely silenced because of the internet be enough to enable a decent society to right itself and continue as a nice place for human beings to live? It's never happened before. Civilization has existed for thousands of years. So far, every single society with good values has gone through a process culminating in what we see around us today and resulting in collapse. Where are the places where freedom and human dignity have ruled for centuries and still counting? They don't exist. That should wake anybody up to the difficulties we face. Keeping this as anything remotely resembling "the land of the free and home of the brave" goes against so many fundamental flaws of the human psyche it's been impossible to maintain such a place. Our task seems impossible. We do have the internet as what just might be a game-changer this time. Not likely, but it is a new twist to give us some hope.

I like Gateway Pundit's reporting too, though I don't think they do investigative journalism.

Substack is fine, but needs a broader reach. You could post anything I have seen on Courageous Discourse on Rumble or Locals.

We have subscribed to The Epoch Times for several years. Have their channel on our TV, get the weekly print paper which is fun to read, and share with guests. We also have the app and full access as a subscriber. HIGHLY recommend! Of course it is not our only source, but Jan’s interviews are excellent long form, he asks really questions, lets his guests speak, is well read, well spoken. I would put his interviews on par with Uncommon Knowledge and its host.

Yeah, and the so-called great Epoch Times is phishing for money by failing to unsubscribe people like myself who have requested, multiple times, to be unsubscribed due to their paywall. That makes them untrustworthy. Their denying access to the site by the disabled, elderly and impoverished, and denying free speech to same in keeping them from commenting on articles (which Dr. McCullough, etc., does as well), is not only a violation of freedom of speech, but it is also discrimination on the basis of age and/or disabilities. In the case of the subset of those people previously-named who stand up for human and civil rights, and would comment on Epoch Times articles, it is also discrimination on the basis of standing up for human and civil rights.

The claim that private companies, including companies on the web, are not subject to the First Amendment, is absurd. Put two and two together properly, dear "Americans": Since the right to free speech is in-, or un-, alienable, meaning it can't be taken or withheld from us, that of course clearly means that we possess that right AT ALL TIMES, and thus obviously IN ALL PLACES as well. Therefore, OF COURSE private businesses are subject to being responsible for upholding, and not violating whatsoever, the First Amendment, as well as the rest of the U.S. Bill of Rights.

And, since it is the DUTY of all true Americans to uphold and not violate the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights as a whole at all times, and/or in any way(s), it is their further duty to provide a free speech forum (aka, comments section) on each and every news article, to not carry out ANY censorship, and to freely allow ALL "unpopular" and/or "offensive" speech (SEE Brandenburg vs. Ohio, the Supreme Courts case LAW describing what speech freedom of speech includes), and ONLY censor threats of physical violence that are likely to actually be imminently carried out. THAT is the ONLY exception to free speech. In addition, under the First Amendment, it is also their duty to provide that forum to all those who cannot pay for access to it due to impoverishment, otherwise they are guilty of discriminating against the above-referenced minorities for the foregoing reasons, and of violating freedom of speech. Such violations should of course end completely.

Thus, this absurdity that businesses and corporations are allegedly exempt from upholding and not violating freedom of speech is anti-American, un-American, and a clear undermining, as well as violation, of the U.S. Bill of Rights and the Constitution, and specifically of the First Amendment. We either have free speech everywhere at all times, with the ONLY obvious exceptions being such things as falsely crying "fire" in a crowded theater in order to intentionally cause panic and harm, and the aforementioned threat(s) of actual, imminent physical violence, or we don't really have freedom of speech at all. But, with only those previously-delineated, very limited exceptions, we innately possess the right to free speech ALWAYS AND EVERYWHERE, period.

Every publication has its biases (which is why I endeavor to look at all sides of hotbed issues), but the Epoch Times, in my opinion, strives to be impartial in its reporting--oftentimes when I want them to be more stridently on “my side.” I appreciate that they exist.

Glad to see one mainstream news source stepping out on the edge to report salient news ......

Oh wait, isn't that what journalism is all about?! I would Love to see mainstream media reporting objective news based on the facts. That's right Facts, not propaganda, just the facts. And not be afraid to write other perspectives substantiated by, wait for it....Facts!

The words "disinformation and misinformation" sound like an attempt at big words used as distractions or a means to hide the truth......Backfire Alert ➡️ it just reinforces my belief that I know what's really going on....

Absolutely correct. They are the only legitimate honest, trustworthy newspaper remaining.
