Beam: The newspaper of the future may look like the Christian Science Monitor

Boston Globe
Alex Beam likes the way the Christian Science Monitor explains the world in just 20 pages each day. “It is selective in what it covers,” he writes. “Its specialty is timely, analytical journalism, unleavened by the cynicism of the ink-stained wretch.” The paper’s financial troubles, says Beam, “instilled a much-needed sense of caution at Monitor headquarters.”
