The future of D.C.'s famed attraction the Newseum is uncertain with the company's president leaving and a financial review taking place.

Freedom Forum has been a financial supporter of the Newseum pouring hundreds of millions of dollars into the structure. However, the organization can no longer provide aid to the museum.

Several alternatives to help the Newseum have been introduced, including bringing in a financial partner and potentially selling the building.

ABC7 News reporter Stephen Tschida has more on this story in the above video.
