Marcus： For most ethical dilemmas the journalist is likely to face, traditional journalistic ethics is clear, adequate, and essentially correct. For example, when journalists have uncovered newsworthy information, they should go to press with it as soon as possible. No delay motivated by the journalists' personal or professional interests is permissible.
Anita： Well, Marcus, of course interesting and important information should be brought before the public-that is a journalist's job. But in the typical case, where a journalist has some information but is in a quandary about whether it is yet important or “newsworthy,” this guidance is inadequate.
The point made by Anita's statements is most accurately expressed by which one of the following？
（A） Marcus's claim that traditional journalistic ethics is clear for most ethical dilemmas in journalism is incorrect.
（B） The ethical principle that Marcus cites does not help the journalist in a typical kind of situation in which a decision needs to be made.
（C） The ethical principle that Marcus cites does not help the journalist in a typical hind of situation in which a decision needs to be made.
（D） There are common situations in which a journalist must make a decision and in which no principle of journalistic ethics can be of help.
（E） Traditional journalistic ethics amounts to no more than an unnecessarily convoluted description of the journalist's job.
Had trouble deciding between A & C. B was tempting too...
