More #FakeNews from Former News Magazine Newsweek

CNN, for once, has the real story, rather than Newsweek's fake news.

Short story: The tree is in danger of falling unexpectedly. It is currently only being held up by artificial support (cables, etc.), but those cables aren't enough to keep the thing from crashing to the ground and maybe killing someone or damaging the White House.

Specialists at the United States National Arboretum were brought in by the White House to assess the Magnolia grandiflora, as it is specifically termed. According to documents obtained exclusively by CNN, the tree must be removed, and quickly, despite efforts to preserve it over several decades. The documents read in part:
"The overall architecture and structure of the tree is greatly compromised and the tree is completely dependent on the artificial support. Without the extensive cabling system, the tree would have fallen years ago. Presently, and very concerning, the cabling system is failing on the east trunk, as a cable has pulled through the very thin layer of wood that remains. It is difficult to predict when and how many more will fail."

The decision to remove the tree was ultimately made by first lady Melania Trump after she assessed all of the professional information and accompanying historical documents.

Now, here's how "News" Week clickbaited it:



The story now says it's been "updated" with new information from the CNN article, which suggests the original story did not note that the tree crumbling and was an actual hazard.

Selena Zito is ashamed of her profession:



MZ Hemingway, who is branded by the liberal Republican "Resistance" as being a propagandist for Trump because she points out that the liberal media often lies, is similarly critical:



How many lies does the media get to tell and still whine about their loss of credibility?

And say-- remember when CNN altered its video to make it appear that Trump decided on his own to dump the food into the koi pond, selectively zooming in the video so you could not see he was merely following President Abe's lead?
