During last year's election, a section of politically biased media criticized only the views of liberals, not those of conservatives.

A. a section of politically biased media criticized only the views of liberals, not those of conservatives.
B. a section of media, politically biased, criticized only the views of liberals, not the conservatives.
C. a section of media, politically biased, criticized only the views of liberals, not those of conservatives.
D. a section of politically biased media criticized only the views of liberals, not the conservatives.
E. a section of media criticized only the politically biased views of liberals, not those of conservatives.

The sentence compares the views of liberals with those of consvervatives, not with the concersatives themselves. Thus, we can preclude B) and D).
Secondly, "politically biased" should refer to "section of media". This is the most logical assumption because if all of the media or only the liberals were biased, the statement makes less sense imo. I hope everyone can follow that logic as its not that easy to explain, but rather intuitive imo. This leaves us with answer choice C), which correctly calls a section of the media politically biased. This makes the most sense.

First Check for Parallelism that -
" the views of liberals" so further also this should be - " those of conservatives "
So (B) and (D) are excluded
Then its talking about Section of Media which is "politically biased " So it make sense with option (C)

Option D - a section of media criticized only the politically biased views of liberals, not those of conservatives. (doesn't make sense )

Let me know if any doubt on my explanation .

I’m still a little confused, how do we compare A to C? Aren’t both referring to the section of media?

A and C are both correct according to me.A is correct because politically biased media is also a possibility .And E is also correct if anyone consider a different meaning.I think this kind of questions appear when the question maker lacks the purpose of gmat SC questions.

Hi !

Option A says "a section of politically biased media" which means that only some part of the media which is biased" but the actual meaning to be conveyed is " in the media a section or part of it is biased".

At first it seemed weird to me as well because we talk in the above (A) language, but that is not correct in terms of the meaning we actually want to convey.

Hope it helps.

B and D can be taken out, they compare the views of liberal to the conservatives instead of the conservatives’ views. E changes the meaning by suggesting that the views of liberal’s were politically biased. A and C are correct, but since C is more concise, we will go with that.
