In response to World Monitor television: a selection of press comments

From the March 1989 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Many Journal readers in the United States may by now be quite familiar with a half-hour nightly television news program launched last fall by The Christian Science Publishing Society. World Monitor: A Television Presentation of The Christian Science Monitor has attracted broad appreciation for its quality and substance. As one columnist put it, "'World Monitor' deserves to be called 'journalism of hope.'" We felt that readers both in the United States and elsewhere would be interested in some of the initial response to the program. Though we have space to reprint only a small sampling of press comment, the following excerpts show that World Monitor is meeting a widespread desire for thoughtful and enlightening news programming.

" 'World Monitor' . . . will be a direct arm of the daily Christian Science Monitor newspaper, with overlapping news staff and news meetings. . . .

"As an extension of the newspaper, the show probably will be bound by the credo of Mary Baker Eddy, who when she founded the newspaper in 1908 said her aim was to 'injure no man, but to bless all mankind.'"
