Criticism that the press panders to public sentiment neglects to consider that the press is a profit-making institution. Like other private enterprises, it has to make money to survive. If press were not profit-making, who would support it? The only alternative is subsidy and, with it, outside control. It is easy to get subsidies for propaganda, but no one will subsidize honest journalism.

It can be properly inferred from the passage that if the press is
(A) not subsidized, it is in no danger of outside control
(B) not subsidized, it will not produce propaganda
(C) not to be subsidized, it cannot be a profit-making institution
(D) to produce honest journalism, it must be profit-making institution
(E) to make a profit, it must produce honest journalism

Enjoy!!!

D ---> otherwise if press starts depending on outside support it would be influenced by outside control which will not be conducive to honest journalism.

Press is profit making. If the press stops making profit, the only survival option is subsidies which in turn means dishonest journalism.
Hence, if the press wants to produce honest journalism, it should not rely on subsidies and make profits.
