How many others received a free Newspaper today.

Post by GordonH »

When I checked my mailbox I was surprised to see a free newspaper The Epoch Times.
Did anyone else received this today.

Yup, I received one a few days ago.
I made a comment at the time regarding it on the China forum but it was deleted due to making it personal. My bad.
I found it interesting and not fully about China.

Articles in it that appeared somewhat accurate are articles that you will never see on CBC.
Always nice to see the other side of the stories.

Shouldn't expect too much written on China, conspiracies or not as it is owned by an Asian, John Tang.

Easy, it went from the mailbox into the recycling bin.

Never read a word of it.

Clearly the Epoch Times doesn’t think very highly of CCP, that is 1 thing I totally agree with. CCP is den of BS’ers

I just checked out their latest on-line edition. Here's the top headlines:

Chinese Regime Oversaw ‘Unprecedented’ Efforts to Crush Human Rights in 2020, US Commission Says.
Canada Facing Limited COVID-19 Vaccines, but Expects to Receive One Million Doses a Week in April.
Chinese Province of 38 Million Tells Residents to Isolate at Home as Virus Outbreak Worsens.
Black Lives Matter Activist Who Stormed Capitol on Jan. 6 Charged.

Two article on China, one on Canada and one on America.
You can judge.
