There is a lot of unknown with Lilac Charm's parents I think, something much more modern in that lineage than is evident in face value. Because NEWS is really modern in habit, bloom size, there is basically no scent.....the plant shows no traces of gallica or species, it looks and behaves just like any modern bedder. Here in NE Florida the summer blooms are pointless: they don't fully open, they tend to have misshapen petals (overly ruffled?) if they do open, the color is washed out grayish magenta. In the spring and fall the blooms are huge and vivid. Surprisingly free of fungal diseases. Repeat bloom is fast.

My general feeling is that News is 'Lilac Charm' x ('Tuscany Superb' seedling), but we'll never know now.

That might explain how it happens that 'News' does repeat bloom, a feature one would not expect from the official lineage.
