Hello there!

I'm reading a novel and there is a sentence in it which I do not fully understand.

Sentence: And then, at last, the frenzy wore itself into staleness, and even the journalists had nothing left to say, but that too much had been said already.
Source: Cuckoo's Calling.
Written by: J.K. Rowling.


I'm unable to understand the use of the word that before too. Shouldn't it be then instead of that?

    Thank you, Perpend. If I'm not wrong it means the journalists said that too much had been said already, right?
