Christian Science Monitor media bias rating is Center.

The Christian Science Monitor has maintained its reputation within the news industry as a well-run, high quality news organization with minimal bias. Rather than narrowing its focus like much of current mainstream media, its primary aim is to provide fair and in-depth analyses from multiple perspectives, seeking to provide meaningful instead of sensational news. In December of 2013, the AllSides community overwhelmingly agreed with a center rating by more than a 3 to 1 ratio. As of May 2016, The Christian Science Monitor’s AllSides Bias Rating™ remained the same, despite a small majority of nearly 2500 community members disagreeing with our center rating. 70 of those who disagreed produced an average bias score of 62 in a follow-up survey, which barely falls in the range of a lean left bias, not enough to change it rating from center.

The newspaper’s inception was, in part, a response by Eddy to the sensationalist media practices at the timeCurrently, the Christian Science Monitor offers coverage via its website, a weekly magazine, daily news briefings and email newsletters. Despite its name, it does not claim to be religious-themed or to promote the doctrine of its patron church, though it does include a daily religious feature on “The Home Forum” page.
