History

Founded in 2001, NTD TV (Not to be confused with Australian NTD (TV station) or New Tang Dynasty Television is a New York-based television broadcaster. According to their about page, NTD’s mission is “At NTD we believe the integrity of our world hinges on the accurate and truthful spreading of information.”  NTD TV is founded by a group of Chinese-American Falun Gong practitioners which supports social conservatism, segregated paradises, and anti-communism according to RationalWiki. The Wall Street Journal states that Falun Gong also founded the Epoch Times. However, an SF Gate article suggests that Executives at the Epoch Times, New Tang Dynasty, and Sound of Hope deny they represent the movement. The Chinese Government considers the movement a cult and they state “NTD.TV claims to be an independent public media organization serving Chinese people all over the world. But, in essence, it is a mouthpiece of ‘Falun Gong’ in cult and anti-China propaganda.”

NTD TV’s primary focus topics are news, cultural shows, educational programs, sports, and entertainment.

Analysis / Bias

In review, NTD TV uses minimally loaded emotional language in their headlines such as “Vice President Pence to Mueller Investigation: Very Respectfully, It’s Time to Wrap Up “and “Mueller’s Russian Troll Case Returns to Bite Him as One Defendant Shows up for Trial.“ New Tang Dynasty Television sources to their questionable right biased sister news media company the Epoch Times and they also republish articles from Reuters. Editorially, NTD TV supports conservative issues.

During the Coronavirus outbreak, they published false and misleading information such as Doctor’s cremating people alive in Wuhan, China: Video: Woman Says Coronavirus Patients Cremated Alive. This claim has never been proven. See failed fact checks below. Further, during the 2020 Presidential Election, they frequently floated conspiracy theories related to election fraud such as this Dominion Voting Machines Designed to Influence Results: Forensics Report. Again, there is no evidence to suggest this is true. In general NTD TV is Right Biased and frequently publishes false and misleading information.
