According to a Politico article dated 06/23/2010, Epoch Times spokesperson and opinion editor Stephen Gregory would not comment on how The Epoch Times is funded because he says “the owners prefer to remain private,” Gregory said that in the beginning, “the people who started the newspaper were able to fund it.”
The Epoch Times editorials regarding US news generally tend to stay neutral as they source from both sides by using the Weekly Standard and Axios However, they source opinion pieces very poorly when reporting about China. Overall, we rate The Epoch Times least biased and high for factual reporting about USA news, and biased regarding news about China. (M. Huitsing 8/21/2017)
