James Woods rips ‘cutting edge’ journalism for piece that dissects Stephen Miller’s THIRD GRADE antics

Hollywood actor James Woods Took a forceful swing at HuffPost — and the entire media by extension — Thursday over its frivolous concern for White House senior policy adviser Stephen Miller’s childhood habits.

Apparently, Miller used to “pour glue on his arm, let it dry, peel it off and then eat it,” and this was newsworthy to HuffPost (and countless others) for some inexplicable reason.


Woods’ point was that this is garbage journalism. Yet despite it clearly being garbage journalism, an absurd number of outlets that are considered “credible” by the mainstream press had picked up the story by Thursday, including The Cut, The Root, Mashable and Splinter News.

The cutting edge piece also noted Miller was compared to a ‘Peanuts’ Character as a child.

The real culprit, though, happens to be The Hollywood Reporter, which ran a op-ed Wednesday from Miller’s third-grade teacher, Nikki Fiske. It was the trifling nonsense she shared in her piece that HuffPost and its equally low-rent peers had picked up.

“I was always trying to get him to clean up his desk — he always had stuff mashed up in there,” Fiske had written. “He was a strange dude. I remember he would take a bottle of glue — we didn’t have glue sticks in those days — and he would pour the glue on his arm, let it dry, peel it off and then eat it.”

He hadn’t been a “strange dude.” He’d been a mere child — one whom she just smeared in front of the entire country, presumably to score political points. In her piece Fiske also derided young Miller as a “loner” with poor handwriting. Isn’t this a form of bullying?

The action to this piece was rightly brutal:

To be fair, The Hollywood Reporter was simply following the lead of more “reputable” outlets like The New York Times and Politico, which had started the anti-Miller bandwagon last year.

First the Times investigated Miller’s high school and college days, and then this past summer one of his third-grade classmates penned a piece about him for Politico. Not once during former President Barack Hussein Obama’s eight years in office did either outlet ever dig into either his or his administration officials’ lives like this. Not once.

But when it comes to harming the Trump administration, the media will stoop to any level. As noted by several on Twitter, this is exactly why so few Americans like or trust the media anymore:
