This is the scoop on the Paul Pelosi attack that Today Show correspondent Miguel Almaguer was reportedly suspended over.
Almaguer broke the news that when police showed up Pelosi, “did not immediately declare an emergency or tried to leave his home, but instead began walking several feet back into the foyer toward the assailant and away from police.”
“NBC Today show correspondent Miguel Almaguer has been suspended pending an internal investigation after NBC News had to retract his reporting that inflamed right-wing conspiracy theories about the brutal assault on Paul Pelosi”. Almaguer reported on November 4th (a week after the incident) “after a ‘knock and announce,’ the front door was opened by Mr. Pelosi. The 82-year-old did not immediately declare an emergency or tried to leave his home but instead began walking several feet back into the foyer toward the assailant and away from police,” Almaguer reported on the morning of November 4. “It’s unclear if the 82-year-old was already injured or what his mental state was, say sources.”
NBC News later retracted the report.
