Epoch Times

The New York Times describes the Epoch Times as follows:

The Epoch Times is one of the most mys­te­ri­ous fix­tures of the pro-Trump media uni­verse. It was start­ed 20 years ago as a print news­pa­per by prac­ti­tion­ers of Falun Gong, the per­se­cut­ed Chi­nese spir­i­tu­al prac­tice. In recent years, the paper has made inroads into top Repub­li­can cir­cles. Mr. Trump and his advis­ers have shared Epoch Times arti­cles on their social media accounts, and last year, Lara Trump, the president’s daugh­ter-in-law, sat for an inter­view with an Epoch Times edi­tor. Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Paul Gosar, a Repub­li­can from Ari­zona, called it “our favorite paper.”
