What a Center Bias Rating Means

The source either does not show much media bias, displays a balance of articles with left and right biases, or equally balances left and right perspectives in its reporting.

Center doesn't mean better! A Center media bias rating does not necessarily mean a source is totally unbiased, neutral, perfectly reasonable, or credible, just as Left and Right don't necessarily mean extreme, wrong, unreasonable, or not credible. AllSides encourages people to read outlets across the political spectrum.

The Times of Israel Rated Center in October 2023 Independent Review

An October 2023 Independent Review of The Times of Israel returned an AllSides Media Bias Rating™ of Center.

At the time of review, much of the website's content focused on the war between Israel and Hamas. It also published many international stories of interest to Jews. An AllSides reviewer reviewed content, and did not find noticeable bias present when The Times of Israel reported or commented on American politics.

After a discussion including other team members, AllSides reviewers did not find The Times of Israel to exhibit strong bias in favor of Israel in its news coverage of Israel's war with Hamas. The publication did refer to Hamas members as "terrorists" and some of their statements or media as "propaganda," however did not appear to frame things in a way that is overly favorable to the Israeli establishment or Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu either.

In its opinion section titled The Blogs, however The Times of Israel did appear to publish almost exclusively pro-Israel opinions.
