History Edit

It is published by the Liberty Times Group and launched its first edition on 15 June 1999.[1] The Taipei Times claims to be the third newspaper in English established on the island.[2]

The Taipei Times has been involved in several controversies, including an argument with a member of the United States House of Representatives, a push for nuclear weapons under then-R.O.C. President Chen Shui-bian, and misleading readers about the origin of a letter to The Wall Street Journal.[3][4][5][6][7]

Editorial postions Edit

Its editorial position leans toward Taiwan independence, disputes Filipino sovereignty of the Batanes Islands, and supports the development of Taiwan's own nuclear arsenal.[8][9][10][11] It is a participant in Project Syndicate.[12]
