No collusion, no exoneration.

That — in a nutshell — is Attorney General William Barr's summary of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into whether the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government to influence the 2016 election.

The investigation lasted 22 months and ignited one media storm after another.

Now, some journalists, commentators and even some top Democrats are faced with the prospect of defending their condemnation of the president over the last two years.

"I think Democrats and the liberal media owe the president and... the American people an apology. They wasted two years, and created a massive disruption and distraction from things that impact people's day to day life," said White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on the "Today Show" Monday.

So, should Democrats and the media apologize for the hype?
