### 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.

This is close between C and E

but I am going to say E for two reasons

1. The author seems to think the fraud is obvious and cotends that the publishers just care about seeling copies.. i.e. publishers igonore the fraud so he is indeirectly assuming publisher is resposible for whatever is printed

2. choice C says "everything" must be verifiable. the use of everything here is too strong

sigep whats the OA?

Agree with damit. E should be it.

E is the OA. if we negate E, we see that publishes are not responsible for the advertisements published in their magazines. Hence the whole thing falls apart.

My assumption logic is disasterous.
