In film and television, it’s possible to induce viewers to project their feelings onto characters on the screen. In one study, a camera shot of a woman’s face was preceded by images of a baby. The audience thought the woman’s face registered contentment. When the same woman’s face was preceded by images of a shark attack, the audience thought the woman’s face registered fear. Television news teams must be careful to avoid such manipulation of their viewers.

Which of the following is best supported by the information in the passage?

A. Television news teams have abused their position of trust in the past.
B. The expression on the woman’s face was, in actuality, blank.
C. Images of a baby engendered feelings of happiness in the audience.
D. Audiences should strive to be less gullible.
E. The technique for manipulating audiences described in the passage would also work in a radio program that played dramatic music.
