"was as much discussed" is needed in A?

E seems better to me.

Baseball, the only major professional sport during the Great Depression, was present and discussed as often as the weather was [present and discussed].

I still stand by my answer i.e A

was the author trying to say that baseball was as present as weather?

something like: weather was always present and so was baseball..

we are talking about this after a long time..so can we say weather was?
