I think it should be B , since it is not certain, would must be used instead of will

Who or what does "they" in B refer to?

Whereas (D) is not a perfect sentence, it' the best of what we have to choose from.

My vote for D.

can't this be E, which correctly inserts a noun in place of "they"?
D could refer to either the powerstation or journalists.

My answer is D because it will maintain parallelism

"will be or could be"

I want to ask something regarding E...

would or could be .... does would before the or not carry through the or

Wouldn't it be....

1. would be or could be
2. would or could be

Aren't both same... just that second one is more concise.
