    Epoch Times attacked by thugs

    Falun Gong's Epoch Times office has been attacked by thugs with its printing presses smashed and computers destroyed:

    The Epoch Times is known for its anti-CCP stance. Yet its articles mixes legitimate and mainstream news and topics with conspiracy theories and plain wacko nonsensical stories. So its credibility isn't exactly top-notch. Still, does it deserve to be attacked like this?

    the Epoch Times, a far-right newspaper critical of Beijing
    When did the Epoch Times become far-right? Being anti CCP is far right now?

    The police will go through the motions of starting an investigation, as they are required to do in cases like this. But I have a hunch they will just do it half-heartedly. Like someone staying in their office waiting to clock out while not really doing anything.

    And we all know why that would be the case...

    Yeah, there's some very shady involvement between them and some Trumpy people - they ended up pretty firmly in the "we think CCP is evil, you think CCP is evil, therefore you are the saviour" area, at least for a while...

    Epoch Times is Falun Gong's mouthpiece.

    I don't think they are a religion, that doesn't make them far right though. We are all fucked if being anti-China makes you far-right
