Magazine Publisher: Our magazine does not have a liberal bias. It is true that when a book review we had commissioned last year turned out to express distinctly conservative views, we did not publish it until we had also obtained a second review that took a strongly liberal position. Clearly, however, our actions demonstrate not a bias in favor of liberal views but rather a commitment to a balanced presentation of diverse opinions.

Determining which of the following would be most useful in evaluating the cogency of the magazine publisher’s response?
A. Whether any other magazines in which the book was reviewed carried more than one review of the book
B. Whether the magazine publishes unsolicited book reviews as well as those that it has commissioned
C. Whether in the event that a first review commissioned by the magazine takes a clearly liberal position the magazine would make any efforts to obtain further reviews
D. Whether the book that was the subject of the two reviews was itself written from a clearly conservative or a clearly liberal point of view
E. Whether most of the readers of the magazine regularly read the book reviews that the magazine publishes

the argument suggests that the publisher is fair and unbiased. C questions whether the publisher would have made the same effort to balance a liberal point of view

The important point to understand that magazine publisher argues that their magazine is unbiased and balanced. He provides evidence pointing to the fact that magazine provided conservative review to balance the liberal review provided by other magazine.

Here, what needs to be evaluated is if magazine provides its review first then will it reconsidered any other review to balance the tide.

option C clearly specify that question, hence C

Why option B is wrong? What if he publishes only commissioned reviews?

i did not understand this argument and answered this question wrong. Can anyone please explain me the meaning of liberal bias? I took it as if magazine publisher is saying that they do NOT have a fair bias.

The argument is saying there are tow types of views : Conservative and Liberal.

It is saying it is not biased to the liberal side. It is neutral for both.
