News focused on progress and solutions

Beyond fear, beyond anger.
Real news. Real hope.

In a world of news focused on divides, stoked by anger, fear and hopelessness, The Christian Science Monitor stands out as a news organisation devoted to fair, honest, unbiased reporting.

The Monitor reports on ‘behind the news’ signs of progress and hope in communities and nations, while accurately reporting the facts ‘on the ground’.

The Monitor’s commitment:

As forces from politics to social media try to break us into competing tribes – political, racial, or economic – together we’ll rethink the question “Who is my neighbour?”

We need you to hold us accountable – to keep us honest and grounded. To inspire us with what inspires you. Together, we can build a community of people who ask more from news.

News must be accurate and trustworthy, but facts alone can miss the whole story – the story of us. We are much better than much of today’s news portrays us to be. We will have the courage to look into both the best and the worst in us – and not to blame, but to demand better.

Declare ye among the nations, and publish, and set up a standard; ...

The object of the Monitor is to injure no man, but to bless all mankind.

The Monitor has an impressive pedigree. It has won seven Pulitzer Prizes and more than a dozen Overseas Press Club awards for excellence in journalism. For over one hundred years it has carved its niche as one of the world’s most respected and trusted international news organisations.
