The statement basically admits a mentality (presumably held by many in the mainstream media) in which Donald Trump and the truth are treated as somehow mutually exclusive.
In other words: Trump made us lie. 🤦♀️ https://t.co/SDqmXjBdtI

I don't give any of these people a free pass. The issue is they do this all after the fact and narratives have already settled in people's minds and they did so after the election.
Same thing with the Cuomos. We can't excuse all the people who swooned over them. https://t.co/48uisWjTQV

The intel community made clear in April 2020 that Covid 19 started in China at one of two places.
You all ignored Intel statements – not just President Trump. https://t.co/HpNMqVISrb

Think what might have resulted if the mainstream media had put the level of energy into pursuing the origin of the coronavirus that they seem to now be admitting they put into refuting Trump.
