Are you still reading the other newspaper in town? Did you know that the Daily Bugle is owned by an out-of-town business syndicate that couldn’t care less about the people of Gotham City? Read the Daily Clarion, the only real voice of the people of Gotham City!

Which of the following most directly refutes the argument raised in the advertisement above?
(A) Over half of the advertising revenues of the Daily Clarion come from firms whose headquarters are located outside of Gotham City.
(B) The Daily Clarion usually devotes more of its pages to out-of-town news than does the Daily Bugle.
(C) Nearly 40 percent of the readers of the Daily Clarion reside outside the limits of Gotham City.
(D) The editor-in-chief and all the other members of the editorial staff of the Daily Bugle have lived and worked in Gotham City for ten years or more.
(E) The Daily Bugle has been published in Gotham City for a longer time than has the Daily Clarion.

Are you sure?

It seems to me that the Daily Clarion devoting more pages to outside gotham city contradicts the claim that the Daily Clarion is the voice of the gotham city...

What is the OA and OE?

Between B and D, I got B

D may be correct because if the only reason for not buying the newspaper is because it is owned my outsiders then the point of refute can be "the working staffs are from in the town". I think what goes in the newspaper is not in question.
