Why is a Church so involved in news publishing?

"The publishing activities that Mrs. Eddy established indicated her deep care for humanity .... The religious periodicals, with appropriate references to modern trends and day-to-day challenges in society, show how Christian Science is provable to meet these challenges. The Christian Science Monitor in all its print and broadcast forms serves a slightly different purpose. The Monitor's mission is to inform its audience not only of the news itself, but even more importantly, to alert people to the deeper significance of the news with its latent challenges to society .... Regardless of denomination, for those who believe in the power of prayer to change the world, the Monitor is of great help in giving them an agenda for prayer."
