The Chicago Monitor is an online news, opinion, and commentary publication. It serves primarily to provide in-depth analysis of mainstream news and also uncover under-reported and unreported stories on the local, national, and international level.

The media team of columnists at Chicagomonitor.com challenges mainstream media coverage of Islam, Muslims and other minorities, international human rights issues, civil rights, and foreign policy. They write alternative perspectives on social justice and human rights issues. They also provide original commentary on contemporary political affairs.
