A large amount of praise comes at intervals for The Christian Science Monitor; criticism, also, is received from those who differ from what they believe to be its policy. Criticism that is constructive is welcomed; criticism that fails in this respect is gladly answered.
It is exceedingly important that readers of the Monitor should appreciate the difference in function between the news columns and the editorial page of the paper. It is notable that readers who are occasionally critical fail to realize this distinction. Frequently letters are received in which the writers attribute to the Monitor the advocacy of some opinion or policy, when actually the Monitor has done no more than record in its news columns news which readers need to know in order to be adequately informed. The news columns do not reflect the editorial opinions of the Monitor. They record the news objectively on the basis of its social importance.
Because Senator A or Governor B is quoted as saying something with which the reader disagrees, the latter need not conclude that he can no longer read the paper. It is proper for the Monitor to print that which is news, news of sufficient importance to warrant a place in its columns, whether or not this news is in harmony with the Monitor's editorial policy.
