Ha’aretz is an independent daily newspaper based in Tel Aviv. Its staff of approximately 330 reporters, writers and editors covers domestic issues and international affairs with a broadly liberal outlook. Ha’aretz has a strong influence on public opinion and is widely read by government officials. In 1919, a group of Zionist immigrants founded the paper, making Jerusalem its first home. In 1922, the paper moved to Tel Aviv.
