I saw a blurb on this today. It isn't a blackout, it just isn't important to them.

I would guess he is now a hostage and there is a ransom to deal with- he's worth far more alive than dead

Re: BRKNG: NBC News Foreign Correspondent Richard Engel Has Gone Missing In Syria... News Blackout
NBC News chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel has gone missing in Syria, according to Turkish news reports. The reports also say that Aziz Akyava, a Turkish journalist working with Engel, is unaccounted for. NBC News has been successfully keeping Engel's status subject to a news blackout—one to which Gawker agreed until now—for at least the past 24 hours.

Turkish newspaper Hurriyet is reporting that Engel and Akyavaş were last known to be in Syria and haven't been in contact with NBC News since Thursday morning. The news has been reported widely in the Turkish press over the past 24 hours, including by Turkish news channel NTV, which presents itself as an international partner of MSNBC. It's also been widely distributed on Twitter.

But NBC News has been asking every reporter who inquires about the report to participate in a news blackout. It has also taken to Twitter and asked people who repeated the Turkish reports there to take them down. You can see here a screengrab of the Twitter account @NBCComm asking a Twitter user who had mentioned the reports to urgently call a cell phone number (that account has since been taken down).

Not censorship in this case. Policy to protect a reporter's well being - and thanks for helping compromise that safety OP.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 4394822


He's missing, that is news. And if it was not supposed to get out, then why is it suddenly appearing all over the place, with no nbc associates coming in to say be quiet?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 18681750


NBC were telling people to not post about it, according to a link I can't post here.

You can be sure he was not abducted by
the Assad government, because if he was,
the Pentagon would have shouted it from the
hilltops.
No, he was probably taken by the FSA extemists,
killed for not being a Muslim, and the Pentagon
is covering it up.
Also, know that "NBC" did not ask for a blackout,
only the Pentagon has that power, which they
exercise over all US mainstream media in real time.
 Quoting: RDprofessor


Steady on there, he's only missing, not killed? And whoever has him knows exactly who he his, because they lured him there.

Weren't they asking for a ransom for that Ukranian reporter last week? No outcome there either...

Something suspect going on, that's for sure...

a good deal of the info on this thread so far is incorrect at this time:

Award-winning NBC News foreign correspondent Richard Engel missing in Syria since last Thursday
By DAVID MCCORMACK

"...Turkish newspaper Hurriyet reports that Engel, together with Turkish journalist Aziz Akyavaş, were last known to be in Syria and haven't been in contact with NBC News since Thursday morning.

While the Turkish media have been circulating the report for several days, American outlets had been operating under a news blackout requested by NBC until today..."
