Criticism that the press panders to public sentiment neglects to consider that the press is a profit-making institution. Like other private enterprises, it has to make money to survive. If press were not profit-making, who would support it? The only alternative is subsidy and, with it, outside control. It is easy to get subsidies for propaganda, but no one will subsidize honest journalism.
It can be properly inferred from the passage that if the press is
(A) not subsidized, it is in no danger of outside control
(B) not subsidized, it will not produce propaganda
(C) not to be subsidized, it cannot be a profit-making institution
(D) to produce honest journalism, it must be profit-making institution
(E) to make a profit, it must produce honest journalism

No one subsidize honest journalism, hence it can be done only when press is profit making

It can be properly inferred from the passage that if the press is
(A) not subsidized, it is in no danger of outside control
if the press is subsidized, it may be in danger of outside control. The opposite may not necessarily be true
(B) not subsidized, it will not produce propaganda
same reasoning as in A
(C) not to be subsidized, it cannot be a profit-making institution
Not necessary. first statement says press is a profit making institution
(D) to produce honest journalism, it must be profit-making institution

(E) to make a profit, it must produce honest journalism
The argument says press will not produce honest journalism, if it is subsidized i.e if press is not making profit. Does not indicate anything about honest journalism helping to make profits

Not in scope, nothing to indicate that in passage
(B) not subsidized, it will not produce propaganda

Did not make sense to me

(D) to produce honest journalism, it must be profit-making institution

(E) to make a profit, it must produce honest journalism

No claim of that here
