Best answer:

Answer by James
All of your options are correct. Were a news organization to refuse to issue the truth, they would be reduced to the level of the ” National Inquirer”. Their credibility as news broadcasters would be reduced to a source of great hilarity and amusement among people. No one would take their reports seriously. No one would believe their reports. Their “reputation” would be a joke. seriously doubt they would remain in business.
