### HideShow timer Statistics

Informed people generally assimilate information from several divergent sources before coming to an opinion. However, most popular news organizations view foreign affairs solely through the eyes of our State Department. In reporting the political crisis in foreign country B, news organizations must endeavor to find alternative sources of information.
Which of the following inferences can be drawn from the argument above?
(A) To the degree that a news source gives an account of another country that mirrors that of our State Department, that reporting is suspect.
(B) To protect their integrity, news media should avoid the influence of State Department releases in their coverage of foreign affairs.
(C) Reporting that is not influenced by the State Department is usually more accurate than are other accounts.
(D) The alternative sources of information mentioned in the passage would probably not share the same views as the State Department.
(E) A report cannot be seen as influenced by the State Department if it accurately depicts the events in a foreign country

D is my answer. They need not share the same view. That is why author of the argument is suggesting media to look at other sources.

A ?

Since only A indicates that using only state govt view of foreign affairs indicates that we are not well informed ... so the report is suspect

(D) is my answer since it touches on the existence of alternative viewpoints to be assimilated.
