The Christian Science Monitor is an international news organization that delivers thoughtful, global coverage via its website, weekly magazine, daily news briefing, email newsletters, and mobile site.

Believe it or not CSM isn't religious in nature, in fact it's more of a "Monitor" and all about unbiased journalism - just what I like - they report the news and not their opinion unlike the news these days - it's refreshing and eye opening.

I've taken some text from their CSM's website to enlighten us all:

"In an era when the mainstream media has narrowed its lens, we're convinced readers yearn for the opposite. This global perspective comes naturally; the Monitor's founder, Mary Baker Eddy, explained our mission this way: "To injure no man, but to bless all mankind."

Mrs. Eddy's statement contains another distinguishing feature. The purpose of our journalism is to "bless" not "injure." That is central to how we cover the news:

* We're unrelenting but fair.

* We're excited by what’s new and developing - yet always mindful of the history behind us.

* We're broad in scope but written for the individual.

* And we make a point of resisting the sensational in favor of the meaningful.

* We're also free to be an independent voice, devoid of the corporate allegiances and pressures that critics say too often skew today's media.

* Join us for a daily distillation of a changing world - your world."

Let me repeat this: "devoid of the corporate allegiances and pressures that critics say too often skew today's media." - Now THAT's real journalism!

CSM has also published a multi-media clip for you to view that was created by CSM's photographer Melanie Stetson Freeman, who spent the weekend with us back in March - she did an outstanding job so go to our website to have a look:
