Korina Sanchez Suspended For One Week?By Marhgil Macuha on Nov 17, 2013 in Asia, Local, Television, World •
A report on Philstar said that Korina Sanchez will not be airing for one week on TV Patrol. According to their source, the reason being circulated is that Sanchez will be off for a vacation.
However, there are doubts saying that Sanchez was probably suspended by ABS-CBN due to recent events in which Sanchez criticized CNN‘s Anderson Cooper for allegedly saying that there was no government presence on the Yolanda-affected areas.
“Itong si Anderson Cooper, sabi wala daw government presence sa Tacloban. Mukhang hindi niya alam ang sinasabi niya,” Sanchez was quoted as saying by several news sources during her radio program on DZMM.
[Rough translation: This Anderson Cooper, he said there’s no government presence in Tacloban. Seems like he doesn’t know what he is talking about.]
Meanwhile, Cooper defended his coverage of the situation in Tacloban and urged Sanchez to go there. “Miss Sanchez is welcome to go there (Tacloban City) and I would urge her to go there. I don’t know if she has, but her husband is the interior minister and I’m sure she can arrange a flight,” Cooper reportedly said.
Their rivalry went viral and Korina was highly criticized by the netizens.
Whether it is a suspension or a simple vacation, only ABS-CBN and Korina Sanchez can confirm. What do you think, is Korina suspended?
