Some sources in this category may be untrustworthy. See all Right Bias sources.
- Overall, we rate World Israel News as right-biased based on its story selection and editorial positions that favor a conservative pro-Israel perspective. We also rate them as Mostly Factual in reporting rather than High due to the occasional use of poor sources.

Analysis / Bias
World Israel News reports on various topics, with a strong focus on Israel and Jewish communities. The headlines can range from straightforward to emotionally charged, such as “‘SMELLS BAD’: Haley doesn’t trust Ramaswamy,” indicating a level of bias in wording. However, local straight news is minimally biased, such as this: 2 killed, 3 wounded in mafia hit, police shoot-out.
The news articles and videos are generally well-sourced but are primarily centered on Israel and its perspectives, which may limit the diversity of viewpoints presented. The story choices reflect a pro-Israel stance, covering issues like Israeli innovation, anti-Semitism, and geopolitics. However, there is evidence they use sources who have failed fact checks, like the American Spectator.
Editorially, the website does not explicitly state its political affiliation but leans towards a pro-Israel perspective with stories such as this: The ‘pinkwashing’ dilemma: Why can’t the media face up to Palestinian homophobia? This could be interpreted as leaning conservative in the context of Israeli politics. They also report favorably on current Right-leaning Prime Minister Netanyahu: Netanyahu blasts Iran at UN, says Palestinians cannot have veto over Arab-Israeli peace deals. In general, most stories are fact-based but hold conservative biases.
