The recent proliferation of newpaper articles in major publications that have been exposed as fabrications serves to bolster the contention that publishers are more interested in selling copy than in printing the truth. Even minor publications have staffs to check such obvious fraud.

The above argument assumes that

(A) newspaper stories of dubious authenticity are a new phenomenon.
(B) minor publications do a better job of fact-checking that do major publications.
(C) everything a newspaper prints must be factually verifiable.
(D) only recently have newspapers admintted to publishing erroneous stories.
(E) publishers are ultimately responsible for what is printed in their newspapers.

I choose E.

The argument states that publishers are more interested in selling than they are in telling the truth. The evidence used to support this claim is that more fabrications are being published. For this to be true, we need to assume that publishers decide what is published.
