CBS News ERRONEOUSLY Publishes OBITUARY of Former US First Lady Barbara Bush 

After news filtered in that former first lady Barbara Bush, 92 will discontinue medical treatment and seek comfort care, CBS News erroneously published her obituary.

The obituary read: “DO NOT PUBLISH – Former first lady Barbara Bush dies at age 92 DO NOT PUBLISH.”

Barbara and George H.W. Bush met when they were 16 years and married in 1945. She was first lady between 1989-1993 when her husband served as the 41st president of the United States. 

Her son, former president George W. Bush in a statement released on Sunday morning announcing his mother’s “failing health” and said that she had decided not to seek additional medical treatment and instead will focus on “comfort care.”  

This prompted the news outlet to mistakenly publish the story.
