Fox News’ coverage wasn’t exactly out of this world on Thursday, as far as James Woods was concerned.
In a perhaps-surprising tweet, actor and outspoken conservative Woods took the news outlet to task for publishing what he deemed “supermarket-level tabloid nonsense.”
The actor took issue with Fox News in a tweet published Thursday. Mincing no words, Woods deemed a story published on the Fox News website as “the stupidest article from a major news outlet in a while.
He also suggested that such coverage might harm Fox News ‘ status as “the only remaining forum untainted by liberal bias.”
“This is the stupidest article from a major news outlet in a while,” Woods wrote. “If #FoxNews is going to endure as the only remaining forum untainted by liberal bias, it must stop publishing supermarket-level tabloid nonsense.”
The article in question involved a video of “a UFO flying over a North Carolina lake” that has “gone viral, prompting speculation that the object in the video may not be of this world.”
Alas, while the video, reportedly filmed May 29 in North Carolina, might have prompted speculation, the Goodyear Blimp people reportedly cleared the air on the issue, according to the Daily Mail.
“We don’t want to get in the way of a good story, but that’s definitely us,” the Goodyear Blimp reportedly clarified on its YouTube account. “We left the Charlotte area 5/29 after covering the Coke 600.”
Fox News didn’t immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.
