CNN News Anchor Anderson Cooper responds to Korina Sanchez‘ comment about his alleged false reports on Tacloban situation particularly the rescue and relief goods operation for super typhoon Yolanda‘s victims. He urges the TV Patrol anchor woman to visit the Tacloban herself!
Mr. Cooper’s response today started when Korina reacted to the CNN news anchor’s report quoting, “There is no real evidence of organized recovery of relief. It is demolition not a construction job here. I have not seen a large Philippine military presence out around here. The search and rescue never materialized. There are mothers searching for their children, it is a sickening sight five days later.” [WATCH VIDEO BELOW]
TANSCRIPT of Mr. Cooper’s Report:
“As for who exactly is in charge of the Philippine side of operation, that is not really clear.
“I am just surprised.
“I expected on this day five, I thought I may have gotten here very late, that things will be well in hand—it does not seem like that.
“People are desperate, they do not have any place for shelter.
“It’s very difficult for people to get food, neighbors are helping out neighbors, water is in short supply.
“It is a very very bad situation here.”
“The doctors there said they did not have enough food.
“They did not have enough water for the hundreds of people they were seeing every day.
“They didn’t have enough medical supply.
“That’s a clinic at the airport.
“If any clinic in the entire disaster zone should be able to receive aid quickly and easily, it’s the clinic at the airport.
“And they were not getting it.
“I don’t know what the situation there is today, but I certainly pray to God that it is a better situation than it was even two days ago.”
The TV Patrol main newscaster on her Radio Program revealed an interesting blind item about a blonde newscaster whose reports about situation in Tacloban are false and inaccurate saying, “Anderson Cooper doesn’t know what he is talking about”. [WATCH VIDEO BELOW]
In response to this, today Mr. Cooper who seemed emotional urges Sanchez to visit Tacloban instead.
“She’s also not a broadcaster, she happens to be the wife of the Interior minister who’s overseeing the relief effort on the ground.”
“The wife of interior minister who’s over seeing the relief effort on the ground, the Sanchez seemed on mistaken impression that I said I saw no presence of the Philippine government on the ground in Tacloban. I never said that obviously I’ve been in Tacloban for days and I’ve been in fact interviewed of a very heroic of a navy captain, Capt. Santiago who’s going out helping people I’ve seen the work has been done and the work it isn’t done perhaps even as importantly. Miss Sanchez is welcome to go there and urge to go there. I don’t know if she has but her husband is incharge I’m sure she can arrange her flight.”

Now, whose voice do you want to hear? Is i from Ms. Korina Sanchez who is now in Ormoc to deliver us the situation on that certain location or we should lend our ears and eyes to Mr. Anderson Cooper who is in Tacloban and reporting on location where the super typhoon Yolanda hit thousand of Filipinos?!
