Analysis / Bias
In review, The Jewish Voice (TJV) focuses on news for the USA and Israel, emphasizing a Jewish perspective. Articles and headlines contain emotionally loaded language, and the paper’s tone leans strongly right in its Israeli coverage. For example, this article supports the former right-wing prime minister: “Netanyahu blasts Lapid for ‘weakness, defeat, and surrender.” According to The Atlantic, Yair Lapid is Israel’s new centrist Prime Minister. In other articles, they are critical of the new centrist government: “‘Shameful surrender’: Lapid blasted by Israeli right for touting Palestinian ‘terror’ state” and Democratic US President Joe Biden ” Netanyahu Brushes Off Biden’s Call for “Significant De-Escalation in Fight.”
Regarding coverage of the United States, they hold a pro-Trump and conservative bias through republishing stories from right-biased questionable sources such as The Epoch Times, with stories like “Trump Derangement Syndrome Is Going To Get Worse.” Other sources they utilize include Questionable The Federalist and World Net Daily (WND). Further, during the Covid-19 pandemic, they have promoted misinformation related to vaccines (pseudoscience) such as this Studies show blood damage in those who got COVID jab. This claim is misleading and unsupported by evidence.
Finally, the website promotes conspiracy theories from Pro-Trump conspiracy theorist Mike Lindell: My Pillow’s Mike Lindell Claims that “Bots and Trolls” Are Behind a Petition to Stop Retailers from Carrying His Product and WATCH BANNED VIDEO: Mike Lindell’s Controversial Documentary On The 2020 Election. Numerous fact-checking outlets have debunked Mike Lindell’s election fraud conspiracies. In general, The Jewish Voice is Far-Right biased and frequently promotes conspiracy theories and right-wing propaganda that is not always factual.
