Chicagomonitor.com is a project of CAIR-Chicago. The Chicago Monitor is an online news and commentary publication. It serves primarily to provide in-depth analysis of mainstream news and also uncover underreported and unreported stories on the local, national, and international level.
The media team at Chicagomonitor.com monitors some of the nation’s mainstream newspapers for their coverage of Islam and Muslims. They flag articles or reports that demonstrate bias, reductionism, or sensationalism. The team of writers at Chicagomonitor.com then respond with articles that underscore the problem and provide a rebuttal. The site presents the public with an online archive of the responses as a public educational service project.
