He joined Business Insider as a reporter in 2011 but moved to BuzzFeed News within a year to become a political reporter.[citation needed]

Miller joined TIME as a political reporter in 2013 and was promoted to White House correspondent for the magazine in 2016. His experiences as among the youngest correspondents on the campaign at the time led to him being featured in a report on millennial journalists published in The New York Times.[5]

On January 20, 2017 Miller incorrectly reported that President Trump had removed the bust of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. from the Oval Office.
