    Yea! I've been waiting for the Monitor to go back online

    I'm very pleased to be able to read the Monitor on my iPad. When the online version is as good-looking as the print version, I'll be even happier. I wish there were an easy to use index since I never read the print version from front to back. Anyhow, it's great to read you online! Thanks.

    Great news source for citizens of the world

    I am an American and my husband is Chinese-American. We both love the Monitor's balanced, thorough, professional, unbiased coverage of world news. The Monitor is a great source of information about all kinds of topics, large and small. It helps us stay current in 2012, when trying to keep up with the overwhelming feed of news and information coming at us is, as they say, "like trying to drink from a fire hose."

    Excellent unbiased news

    The Christian Science Monitor gives me news as unbiased as it comes. It helps me understand the world I live in and helps me know what I can do to help make it better. Every week it brings me something to think and pray about. I recommend reading it regularly and you will be better informed. The Monitor represents news reporting at its best.

    Excellent Source for Unbiased News

    The CSM provides thoughtful, balanced, and deep coverage of national and international events. The writing is outstanding and the topics are thought-provoking. It is a news source you can absolutely trust, which is rare in our world today.

    As always, this magazine provides clarity without sensationalism and highlights not only the many facets of the challenges our world faces, but what is being done to solve them.

    Honest Reporting of the News

    I have received the Christian Science Monitor for years. I like the way that they report the news, but best of all, I like the pictures, because each picture tells a story in itself. I am happy that the Christian Science Monitor is now on E-Readers and that I can have it with me at all times. It is honest reporting of the news.

    Years of Reading Proves It's Value!

    You don't have to be Christian to value the balanced, calm, varied, interesting writing and coverage of this wonderful magazine. This terrific readable resource is informative without being exploitative or hyped. It appeals to adults and young and youngish adults --- not only my wife and I but our three children ranging from 20 to 30 find it a great source as well. This magazine mixes excellent reporting with a thoughtful non-hyped presentation that looks at what is happening in the world, recognizes the facts. Not only do receive this magazine, i've also taken a (reduced rate, with magazine subscription) of the brief 3-page daily update. The two make a wonderful campanion set.

    sadly cancelling my subscription

    I was happy with my subcription until I got this issue. I considered your publication informative, neutral and entretaining. Until this week's issue in which you have 3 different articles critizicing Obama and his wife in a subtle "professional" but still negative way. I am sorry to tell you it makes the publication sound like just another bitter republican publication, without the loud anger of the other ones but still whispering loudly.,Again really sad to cancel, got to keep looking for unbiased information.... let me tell you it is getting harder and harder to find it.

    More than just news, a helpful magazine/newspaper

    I believe part of the Monitor's mission is not just to report the news but in the case of bad news being proactive to show some potential solutions. I think Monitor writers and editors do this by highlighting how people are coping with what seems like a desperate situations and finding solutions. I like this because it doesn't leave you with the feeling that there is all kinds of bad in the world, but that hope and solutions are out there. I had a small experience with this about 20 years ago. It was during the time when the Soviet Union had just collapsed and there was a very real threat of widespread famine in Russia. A friend who worked as a program manager for a charitable foundation was tasked with delivering thousands of pounds of wheat to a orphanage in Russia. It appeared to be an impossible task and would very likely fail. However, at that time the Monitor published an article titled "North Dakota Farmers Send Aid to St. Petersburg". It was the perfect road map on how to get this food aid to the orphanage. Without the help of the wonderful people featured in this article the aid would never have reached the orphanage. It was a great article which to me highlights the solutions oriented nature of the Monitor.

    The sanest news reporting on the planet!!!

    If you see the world as a puzzle, there exists no better guide through the maze of dissonant voices than The Christian Science Monitor whose journalists are not only able to both articulate and synthesize opposing positions, but also neutralize extremes all the while diminishing no one. For over 57 years of my personal readership (from age 13 to 71) the Christian Science monitor has sustained my steadfast belief that balanced news interpretation is possible. Only the format has changed, not the mission.

    Highly recommended *****

    I love the reporting that does not condemn or approve the facts. I like to come to my own conclusions and be aware of happenings without opinions. It takes me several days to get through the magazine, as each article is meaningful. I especially like the articles about people helping people. Encouraging.!!

    Unbiased and enlightening

    I love the timeliness of articles. The writers go more deeply than most other publications without the biases. It's refreshing to read stories that give the facts in an engaging way.

    Excellent Source for News - Read it!

    The Monitor is an exceptional publication in a time of greatly diminishing journalism. The editors and writers take an analytical view of what's going on in the world - not just reporting facts (no longer possible in our 24/7 and online news worlds) - and offer a depth of perspective and breadth of coverage that's difficult to find elsewhere. There are also few publications that cover international issues before they become crises. Reading the Monitor every week gives me a good picture on what's happening in African and South American countries on an ongoing basis, not just when a hurricane strikes or a war breaks out and threatens Americans' personal interests. Well written and balanced, this is a news outlet that can make us all more thoughtful global citizens.

    Not Bad, a little liberal, not enough Christian

    They try to be neutral, but after about 9 months, the stink of an underlying liberal bias has gotten too strong. If there were more perspectives from actual Christians, it might still be tolerable. Sadly, it seems as though the god most worshiped by the staff is socialist or big government.

    more from this reviewer

    You've read the rest, read the best!

    CSM is exactly what I've come to expect in journalism. Don't be fooled by their name, they have the best world coverage in the world. On parallel with their larger peers (NYT, BBC, etc). You get an unbiased look at the world, I challenge you to find a better newspaper. I'm confident you will not. I am excited this is on the nook touch, but to take full advantage its best read on the nook color.

    Fairest of the fair

    I have read the Monitor for thirty years, and have watched it change from a black-and-and white "fat" daily to a sleek, succinct 4-color publication--along with various electronic formats. Although its format has changed, it has kept the hallmarks for which I cherish it--as balanced reporting as one can expect, a keen eye for trends as well as a sharp, clear awareness of the details that contribute to trends, and a rock-solid belief that we--humans, that is--can, and should do better. Although the amount of content has certainly changed, the content itself has remained the same. Let's face it, people, much of "daily news" is blather--words to fill up space. The Monitor has never engaged in blather, and the honed version that I receive every week is a polished, well-crafted jewel, dense with information and thoughtful commentary.

    Highly Recommend - unbiased news reporting

    I always turn to this newspaper when I want truly unbiased news reporting. This publication mostly reports the stories that I happen to be interested in at any given moment. I like the organization of the material: it's easy to read, in-depth without being "too much information" on a topic. I trust this publication to be truthful and honest journalism. (That's refreshing these days.)

    Best and Most Balanced Reporting!

    This weekly news magazine is the best one on the market. It contains articles on national and international news, cultural matters, including films, beautiful photography, and more. It is not a religious magazine, but it does write from the standpoint of educating the reader and looking for ways to solve problems. It is the best way to get news!

    Uplifting Journalism

    I read somewhere that the Christian Science Monitor focuses on being "solution based journalism". That is exactly why I read it and why I feel uplifted after reading every issue. Somehow the whole definition of the press' purpose in our country has changed over the years to being one that feels it should fan the fires of fear and traumas. I'd rather be the kind of person who looks for solutions to the world's problems and who celebrates others who are doing the same. The Christian Science Monitor gives me hope that our world has a chance of improving and progressing. Instead of feeling ashamed of being part of the human race, it makes me feel inspired by the efforts of my fellow man.
