Several movie critics have claimed that this movie will inspire people to act in socially irresponsible ways, yet this claim relies entirely on survey data that have turned out to be deeply flawed. Thus these critics have made a claim that is not only untrue but also potentially harmful to the moviemakers' reputations.

The argument is flawed in that it

(A) infers that a claim is false merely on the grounds that no satisfactory evidence for it has been offered

(B) fails to consider that a pejorative claim that is true can be more harmful to a person's reputation than a false claim

(C) relies on a sample that is likely to be unrepresentative

(D) attacks the persons making an argument rather than attacking the substance of the argument

(E) fails to consider that, even if an argument's conclusion is false, some of the evidence
used to justify that conclusion may nonetheless be true
