### HideShow timer Statistics

The recent proliferation of newpaper articles in major publications that have been exposed as fabrications serves to bolster the contention that publishers are more interested in selling copy than in printing the truth. Even minor publications have staffs to check such obvious fraud.

The above argument assumes that

(A) newspaper stories of dubious authenticity are a new phenomenon.
(B) minor publications do a better job of fact-checking that do major publications.
(C) everything a newspaper prints must be factually verifiable.
(D) only recently have newspapers admintted to publishing erroneous stories.
(E) publishers are ultimately responsible for what is printed in their newspapers.

E is the only correct answer.

A. out of scope
B. out of scope
C. It can not be an assumption. because some facts might not neccessarily be varified
D. it is again not clear from the premise
E. publisher's are not the editors. so blaming the publishers for what has been printed assumes that publishers are ultimately responsible for what is printed in their newspapers.
Bingo! we found it.

I pick (C).

Even minor publications have staffs to check such frauds (=factually verify). Therefore, major publications also have to do so.

A - does not hold up conclusion
B - does not hold up conclusion
C - would be a good assumption. If everything a newspaper prints must be factually verifie, then there is no excuse for a major publication not to do so, especially since even small publications have staff to verify their stories. The conclusion that the major publications are more interested in boosting sale figures is therfore very strong.
D - irrelevant
E - does not hold up conclusion

C for me.
