Haaretz is Israel’s oldest newspaper, first published in 1918, judging by that date, we can say that Haaretz is almost 30 years older than the modern State of Israel, which was born in 1948.
Haaretz, like many other newspapers in Israel and round the world, has lived in accordance to many contradictive ideologies. It was once socialist-oriented, right-wing oriented, pro-Zionist, anti-Zionist, and now it’s of a liberal-secular kind of newspaper. Actually it openly says that it has “liberal views on domestic and international affairs”.
Haaretz English Edition has been very popular ever since it went vital on the Internet a few years ago. Still the Hebrew edition of Haaretz is popular among Israeli who are in agreeing mode with the left and secular parties in Israel.
Haaretz says that it sells “75 thousand copies on weekdays and 95 thousand copies on weekends”.
In order to read Haaretz English Edition online, you have to either sign up for a paid account (I guess 1 or two dollars a week, 1 dollar for the first month though), or else you will be limited to read only 8 articles a day, something I strongly dislike about Haaretz.
