(ReliableNews.org) – The New York Times serves as a rare example of a mainstream news organization reversing itself. The NY Times consistently tore into Trump week after week, day after day, hour after hour some days.
However, on March 10, it published an article giving both the Biden administration and Trump administration credit for the successful rollout of the COVID-19 vaccines.
The new Biden administration expanded and bulked up vaccine production efforts. But some of the key elements were put in place during Donald Trump’s presidency. Both administrations deserve credit, although neither wants to grant much to the other. https://t.co/S5BbpRUaha

According to The New York Times, the biggest difference between the administrations had to do with messaging and the distribution of the vaccine. However, considering Donald Trump’s no-nonsense approach to speaking his mind when dealing with the media, we can discount the first comparison.
Additionally, as The Times reported, the Biden administration “tamped down expectations” in an apparent effort to be able to come in later and claim they operated faster than anticipated.
When it came to distribution, the Trump administration got vaccines rolling out as soon as the Food and Drug Administration issued Emergency Use Authorizations. According to The New York Times, all the “key elements [for distribution] were in place” when Biden assumed office in January.
The new administration couldn’t have accomplished what it already did without the Trump administration’s groundwork. It’s about time the mainstream media started telling the truth and giving credit where it’s due.
