critical reading
posted by faith .
pls help me with this question.
1.the premises of an argument are the assertions and the evidence that the author offers in support of the conclusion. true or false. i think is true but an not sure.
2.The factors that influence newsworthiness are based on the needs of the general public. true or false. i think is true but am not sure.pls help.

The premise doesn't include the support.
Number 2 should be true, but in the real world it is not. Newspapers print what the publishers think will sell the most papers. 
does it mean no 1 is false and no 2 is false.

I agree. Both are false.

thank you so much Ms sue.
