It is one of the four major newspapers in Taiwan, the other three being the Apple Daily, the China Times, and the United Daily News.[1] While the United Daily News is regarded as taking an editorial line that supports unification, the Liberty Times is thought to take a Pan Green pro-independence political stance.[2]
