Since the new publisher took control, a news magazine’s covers have featured only models and movie stars. Previously, the covers had displayed only politicians, soldiers, and business leaders. A leading gossip columnist claimed that the changes made the magazine relevant again. However, many newspaper editorials disagreed and suggested that the new publisher is more interested in boosting sales than in reporting important news events.

Which of the following is an assumption necessary for the argument made by the gossip columnist’s opponents?

A. The charitable activities of models and movie stars often focus public attention on pressing problems.

B. Final authority for choosing the cover subject of the magazine lies with the publisher.

C. A magazine can boost sales while highlighting the coverage of important world leaders.

D. Some of the movie stars featured are now running for political office.

E. Magazine issues with models or movie stars on the covers are purchased at a rate more than three times greater than is the case with issues featuring politicians on the covers.
