These media sources are moderately to strongly biased toward conservative causes through story selection and/or political affiliation. They may utilize strong loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes), publish misleading reports and omit reporting of information that may damage conservative causes. Some sources in this category may be untrustworthy. See all Right Bias sources.
- Overall, we rate Jewish World Review Right Biased based on story selection and authors that favor the right. We also rate them Mixed for factual reporting due to poor sourcing and use of authors who have failed numerous fact checks.

Analysis / Bias
In review, Jewish World Review has a right-leaning conservative bias in story selection and many times does not properly source information in articles. For example, in the article entitled: “REVEALED: The Obama administration’s support for Hamas was not passive,” there is not a single link to an external source to support the claim that Obama actively supported Hamas. Further, the author of this piece is from the Dave Horowitz Freedom Center, which is a far right-wing anti-Islam organization.
In general, story selection always favors the right and comes from authors such as Ben Shapiro, Brent Bozell, and David Limbaugh. All of these authors have failed fact checks.
