Hi, is Jerusalem Post trustworthy?
JP is obviously pro-Israel for local stories, but tends to be trustworthy and factual for international and breaking news. I would probably put them under "Mostly Trusted." Anyone else have a thought on this?
You have to compare and contrast to other sources:

Each source is evaluated on its own merit. It doesn't matter what others do. Only how its reporting is.

I have doubts of a news org that uses "proprietary methods" to analyze news stories.
Proprietary means private and non disclosed. No way to know how this group of editors arrives at their ratings. We simply have to trust them.
Better Analyze the analyzers.
