Journalists owe an apology to President Donald Trump, “whether we like it or not,” Sharyl Atkisson writes in an op-ed for The Hill.

Attorney General William Barr on Sunday stated in his summary of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation that there was no evidence of collusion between Trump’s campaign or his associates with Russia during the 2016 presidential election.

“We did a poor job of tracking down leaks of false information. We failed to reasonably weigh the motives of anonymous sources and those claiming to have secret, special evidence of Trump’s “treason,” the Emmy-award winning investigative journalist writes.

“As such, we reported a tremendous amount of false information, always to Trump’s detriment.

And when we corrected our mistakes, we often doubled down more than we apologized. We may have been technically wrong on that tiny point, we would acknowledge. But, in the same breath, we would insist that Trump was so obviously guilty of being Russian President Vladimir Putin’s puppet that the technical details hardly mattered.”

Trump should also receive apologies from the U.S. intelligence community, including the Department of Justice and the FBI, “which allowed the weaponization of sensitive, intrusive intelligence tools against innocent citizens such as Carter Page, an adviser to Trump’s presidential campaign,” says Atkisson.

Additionally, Jerome Corsi, Donald Trump Jr. and Carter Page should receive apologies.
