Since I’ve seen people make Pages using the Algemeiner as a source, I just want to point out that they have contributors who post crap by the likes of Geert Wilders (‘What We Need Today is Zionism for the Nations of Europe’) and one of their regulars is Raymond Ibrahim. (“Sex Jihad”? Seriously?)
If you’re not familiar with Raymond Ibrahim, here are some tidbits from his Wiki page (emphasis mine):
Ibrahim was born in the United States to Egyptian Coptic immigrants. He is fluent in Arabic and English. Ibrahim studied at California State University, Fresno, where he wrote a Master’s thesis under Victor Davis Hanson on an early military encounter between Islam and Byzantium based on medieval Arabic and Greek texts. […]
Ibrahim was previously an Arab language specialist for the Near East section of the Library of Congress, and the associate director of the Middle East Forum. He is currently a Shillman Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center.
The above is not to say that the Algemeiner is an anti-Muslim hate site per se, but that information combined with a perusal of the names included on their featured writers page is enough to give me very serious pause about anything they publish.
Update 4/30/2014: Courtesy of Pie-onist Overlord (Alouette) in a recent thread, here’s a rundown of Israeli/Jewish news sources:
Haaretz: center-left. Good news source, sadly behind a paywall.
YNet: center-right. Clickbait, tabloid.
Jerusalem Post: more to the right, watch out for some extremist op-eds.
Times of Israel: centrist, fairly reliable IMO
Israel National News (Arutz Sheva): far right, the Fox News of Israel
Jewish Daily Forward: center-left. Reliable on political news but have a hate on for Orthodox Jews, especially Chabad Hasidim.
Jewish Press: far right, see Arutz Sheva.
Vos Is Neias: Aggregate of news stories from other sources, targeted at Hasidic readers. Comments are flaky and weird.
Failed Messiah: a hate blog against Chabad Hasidim.
