Funded by / Ownership

The website is part of The Center for Economic Research and Social Change, a 501(c)(3) organization, which has been described as a socialist advocacy organization by the right-leaning Influence Watch. They have also received funding from Ron Unz, who the ADL calls antisemitic. Revenue for the website is derived through advertising, donations, and a store that sells merchandise.

Analysis / Bias

In review, Mondoweiss reports news and commentary on Israel, Palestine, and the United States with a strong pro-Palestinian bias and extremely negative toward the Israeli Government with stories such as this If Israel accuses Iran of doing something, Israel is likely already doing it. Another story, Yes ‘Jewish Power’ party is fascistic, but its rise was inevitable is also very negative toward Israeli Jews. According to the ADL, they are considered a hate group that promotes antisemitism. Further, this site claims a holocaust inversion occurs, meaning that the Israeli’s are now committing a holocaust against the Palestinians. In general, some information is factual, and others are completely one-sided and misleading.
