If someone asks you “Did you see the front page of the paper today?”, if you’re in Boston, your mind immediately goes to one of three places: the Globe, the Herald, and the Metro. But those three aren’t the only games in town. Right beside the beautiful reflecting pool next to the Prudential Center is another paper — one that reaches millions of people every day: The Christian Science Monitor.
If you’ve never read the Monitor, you’re missing out. Their stories are a great way to get a well-rounded idea of what’s going in in the world without reading a full-page article in the Globe or the New York Times. I visited the Monitor’s Offices recently and talked to their Managing Editor about this giant of the news business that’s right in the middle of Boston.
