NBC News mum as Miguel Almaguer hasnít appeared on-air since Paul Pelosi report was mysteriously retracted (87 hits)

NBC News national correspondent Miguel Almaguer hasn't appeared on the network in 11 days since his explosive report on the Paul Pelosi attack was retracted, but he and NBC News have remained silent since the scrubbing of his report suggesting the House Speakerís husband may not have been in danger when police arrived.

The ordeal has puzzled NBC News insiders, with some believing the report was squashed because it went against the mainstream narrative. A former senior NBC News executive who worked with Almaguer believes the network needs to explain whatís going on.

"NBC News must be more transparent with its viewers about this error. Who wrote Miguelís script? Who approved the script? Are he and his producers suspended during an internal investigation? NBCís silence on this matter speaks volumes. NBC owes it to its audience to be truthful and not cover this up," the former executive said.


It started when Almaguer went viral after he appeared on the Nov. 4 installment of "Today" and offered stunning revelations of what may have transpired when police arrived to Pelosi's San Francisco home following a 911 call.

The NBC News report attempted to answer lingering questions about the alleged home invasion that left Paul Pelosi with a fractured skull. Almaguer cited sources familiar with the situation who said the police didnít know they were responding to the Pelosi residence, Pelosi opened the door but didnít attempt to escape or declare an emergency, and even walked away from law enforcement and toward his eventual attacker.

Almaguer concluded his report by telling "Today" co-host Craig Melvin "we still don't know exactly what unfolded between Mr. Pelosi and the suspect for the 30 minutes they were alone inside that house before police arrive. Officials who are investigating this matter would not go into further details about these new details."

Later in the day as the segment gained prominence on Twitter, Almaguerís report was erased from all NBC News platforms. It was deleted from social media, and NBC News issued an editor's note on its website, reading, "This piece has been removed from publication because it did not meet NBC News reporting standards."

It is unclear what specifically from Almaguer's report did not meet the network's "reporting standards." NBC refused to elaborate, and its digital platforms said the video "expired."


On Monday, Fourth Watch editor Steve Krakauer, a former NBC page who has been critical of NBC Newsí handling of the ordeal, noticed that Almaguer has been absent since the report was retracted.

"It has been 10 days since @Miguelnbc went on NBC and delivered his Paul Pelosi report, that was Ďexpiredí hours later," Krakauer tweeted.

Indeed, Almaguer did not appear on NBC from the since-retracted report through Mondayís edition of "Nightly News," according to a search of transcripts using Grabien Media. NBC News did not immediately respond to a series of questions, including whether he was disciplined and what was wrong with his report in the first place.

Hours after Krakauerís tweet, the Daily Beast reported it had learned Almaguer has been "suspended pending an internal investigation." Again, NBC News did not respond when asked for comment by Fox News Digital.

Almaguer, who sent nine tweets over the first three days of November, did not tweet from the day before his report was retracted through Monday evening.

Almaguer did not respond to a voicemail left by Fox News Digital.
