Here's another example that speaks on Epoch Times' propaganda factor.

In a recent Clear Wisdom piece it reported Amnesty International's endorsement of the "Sujiatun Auschwitz" story by citing an appearance by an AI coordinator named Laura Nuechterlein.

I decided to contact Ms. Nuechterlein. Turns out she is the coordinator of a local AI chapter (Group 4 in Seattle, consists of 3-4 people) that meets in local library once a month.

What Ms. Nuechterlein wrote back was not surprising. Here're some quotes from her reply:

- I was careful to indicate that AI has not made any statement on the death camp allegations

- I barely mentioned Falun Gong at all

- I agree with you that the story was pretty dubious to begin with

- In no way did we endorse the idea of the "Chinese Auschwitz."
