I found out that the Epoch Times and the youtube channels NTD Television and China Uncensored, all of which I have watched, were founded by a highly persecuted Chinese religious cult.
The Epoch Times has been criticized by "fact checkers". However, some of these come from highly liberal sources. Politifact.com was started by a very liberal newspaper and is run by some of the reporters.
However, there is no doubt that the Epoch Times has a very conservative bias.
This might be a case of "the enemy of my enemy is my friend." These news sources are highly critical of the Chinese Communist Party because of their persecution by the CCP.
