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.

B is best ...Arguments says both about revealing the injustice and about presenting the views of each party ....
C D and E are out of scope
A - Argument does not say that all sides have equal justification . it may be or may be not ,but reporting should be balanced.

Correct Ans- Option B

a) Balanced reporting presents the public with a picture of the world in which all sides to a conflict have equal justification. - Contradicts the main idea

b) Balanced reporting requires impartially revealing injustices where they occur no less than fairly presenting the views of each party in a conflict. - The main idea of the argument

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. - Out of scope, as the argument discusses around reporting the injustice in balanced way, rather than what gives rise to injustice.

d) Common sense tells us that balance is especially needed when reporting the background of civil wars and conflicts. - This is only a fraction of the main idea.

e) Balanced reporting is an ideal that cannot be realized, because judgments of balance are necessarily subjective. - The argument clearly states how balance reporting should be done in contrary to just make it look justified, so this is not correct.
