3. Balance is particularly important when reporting the background of civil wars and conflicts. Facts must not be deliberately manipulated to show one party in a favorable light, and the views of each side should be fairly represented. This concept of balance, however, does not justify concealing or glossing over basic injustices in an effort to be even-handed. If all the media were to adopt such a perverse interpretation of balanced reporting, the public would be given a picture of a world where each party in every conflict had an equal measure of justice on its side, contrary to our experience of life and, indeed, our common sense.
Which one of the following best expresses the main point of the argument?
(A) Balanced reporting presents the public with a picture of the world in which all sides to a conflict have equal justification.
(B) Balanced reporting requires impartially revealing injustices where they occur no less than fairly presenting the views of each party in a conflict.
(C) Our experience of life shows that there are indeed cases in which conflicts arise because of an injustice, with one party clearly in the wrong.
(D) Common sense tells us that balance is especially needed when reporting the background of civil wars and conflicts.
(E) Balanced reporting is an ideal that cannot be realized, because judgments of balance are necessarily subjective.

I would go with B.

Facts must not be deliberately manipulated to show one party in a favorable light, and the views of each side should be fairly represented. This concept of balance, however, does not justify concealing or glossing over basic injustices in an effort to be even-handed.

Also this paragraph is particularly about reporting.

The jest of this passage explains what is Balance:
1. Facts must not be deliberately manipulated to show one party in a favorable light, and the views of each side should be fairly represented. 2.This concept of balance, however, does not justify concealing or glossing over basic injustices in an effort to be even-handed.

Which one of the following best expresses the main point of the argument?
(A) Balanced reporting presents the public with a picture of the world in which all sides to a conflict have equal justification.
>>>Does not satisfy 2
(B) Balanced reporting requires impartially revealing injustices where they occur no less than fairly presenting the views of each party in a conflict.
(C) Our experience of life shows that there are indeed cases in which conflicts arise because of an injustice, with one party clearly in the wrong.
