HonestReporting monitors the media, exposes cases of bias, promotes balance, and effects change to ensure Israel is represented fairly and accurately. We also provide educational tools and resources to anyone wishing to advocate for Israel.
HonestReporting has prompted hundreds of apologies, retractions, and revisions from news outlets. These efforts are changing the face of the media and reporting of Israel throughout the world.
HonestReporting was formed in 2000 by a small group of British college students looking to respond to unfair coverage against Israel in the wake of the second Intifada. In 2001, the project became a major organization in its own right as a US non-profit organization (501c3) with an Independent Board of Directors. In February of 2006, HonestReporting was granted independent Charitable Organization status in Israel to complement its US status.
Why is the struggle for media fairness so important? The media sways public opinion, which directly affects foreign policy towards Israel and in turn the lives of her citizens. One person alone may not impact this struggle, but thousands united can!
