WHETHER IT WAS in defense of her husband Sec. Mar Roxas or just what she thinks a journalists responsibility, we dont know, but ABS-CBN news anchor Korina Sanchez did not hesitate commenting on CNNs Anderson Coopers way of reporting about Typhoon Yolandas aftermath on Wednesday, November 13.
Cooper is in the Philippines for a special coverage of the super typhoon, which was named one of the worst typhoons that ever hit the planet. His CNN crew flew to Tacloban on Wednesday to do live coverage for his show, Anderson Cooper 360.
Doing a live report with Tacloban airport as the background, Cooper said, No real evidence of organized relief and rescue operation around Tacloban. I havent seen much of a relief effort, I havent seen a large military presence.
One remark which irked Sanchez, lovey-dovey of Roxas, secretary of the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) unit tasked to lead the search, rescue and relief operations on the ground.
Itong si Anderson Cooper, sabi wala daw govt presence sa Tacloban. Mukhang hindi niya alam ang sinasabi niya, Sanchez was quoted as saying over her morning radio program on DZMM.
One comment that made the netizens angry. Korina became and instant talk of the town, online and offline.
For when Sanchez was at the comfort of the ABS-CBN studio, reading news reported by the news team, Anderson Cooper was out there in Tacloban City, gathering news first hand, for the consumption of CNNs audience. worldwide.
As of this posting, Sanchez hasnt released any further remarks about her comment that gone viral. But one thing is sure, the lady was definitely commenting to defend her husband who aims to be the president of the Republic of the Philippines one dream thats seems to be not becoming a reality especially now that the search and rescue operations get negative reactions from all over the world.
