Dan Kennedy, journalism professor and MediaNation blogger, has a fantastic profile of the Christian Science Monitor and its Web-bound future in the current issue of Commonwealth magazine. (Per Monitor editor John Yemma, the outlet’s much-buzzed-about move away from daily printing “gets us in the game of being relevant. We’re online when an event is happening with the news and the analysis, and with that particular Monitor perspective. We are in the moment of the event happening, of the news breaking.”) Kennedy’s thorough reporting and analysis are packaged, thankfully, with a forward-looking, what-can-we-all-learn-from-this tone. All in all, well worth a read.
