If publishers are not responsible for the contents of newspaper, the conclusion gets weakened.

C and E are indeed very close and I struggled a bit to conclude E.

But saing that they are responsible does not explain why they are NOT working hard enough... They might work hard but inefficiently...
On the other hand, C may help up resolve a problem, because if they are not able to distinguish, than they can not be blamed for their malice...

Conclusion of the argument is : "Publishers are more interested in selling the newspapers than in providing the public with the truth"

Thus its more related to Publisher.

agree c and e caught my eye but c contained the word "always". Absolutes are usually (not an absolute :) ) give away that it is not the answer

I agree that negate E makes the conclusion weak. However, I cant pinpoint why C is wrong. Any one?

My try to negate C: "Fact checker are not always able to verify fact"= they do not work hard enough= support the conclusion rather than breaking it.

***Answer choice C does not address the conclusion..that's the problem with C....I think

Hello

I will go for E

evidences 1 publisher are concerned about less readership
Evidence 2 Fraudulent story are left by those who are responsible of cheecking them
hence
conclusion based on the situation The publisher are concerned about selling newspaper

this true if the publishers are the one in charge to check the story true


the others answers are

a outside the scope
b will weaken the conclusion
c so what
d unrelated
e ok !

hope it helps

best regards

The conclusion depends on the work done by the news verifier. So IMO the answer is C.
