Analysis / Bias

Artuz Sheva publishes news with minimal bias in wording such as this Biden to Rivlin: Iran will never get a nuclear weapon on my watch. The website frequently promotes Zionism, such as this ‘Zionism is alive on the hills of Samaria.’

When reporting international news, Arutz Sheva uses staff writers as well as Reuters. More articles tend to favor former president Donald Trump/Republicans through more positive wording and story selection.

Editorially, they promote a strong pro-Israeli Zionist bias. Further, they report favorably on former President Netanyahu; Netanyahu sounds off on Bennett: ‘Too soft on Iran’. Finally, Arutz Sheva was found by Reuters to have used a deepfake photo for one of their journalists.
