Editorial: One of our local television stations has been criticized for its recent coverage of the personal problems of a local politician’s nephew, but the coverage was in fact good journalism. The information was accurate. Furthermore, the newscast had significantly more viewers than it normally does, because many people are curious about the politician’s nephew’s problems.

Which one of the following principles, if valid, would most help to justify the reasoning in the editorial?

(A) Journalism deserves to be criticized if it does not provide information that people want.

(B) Any journalism that intentionally misrepresents the facts of a case deserves to be criticized.

(C) Any journalism that provides accurate information on a subject about which there is considerable interest is good journalism.

(D) Good journalism will always provide people with information that they desire or need.

(E) Journalism that neither satisfies the public’s curiosity nor provides accurate information can never be considered good journalism.

Hi everyone,

The argument concludes that the coverage is an example of good journalism since 1: it was accurate and 2: people were interested in the coverage.
Option A and B talk about the journalism that can be criticized but the argument does not make any point around such journalism.
Option D and E are too extreme because the argument does not state that accuracy and interests are the only features of good journalism.

Option C matches the overall reasoning of the argument.
