Korina Sanchez and how to avoid PR disasters during natural disasters like typhoon Yolanda

When it comes to advertising and product placements, Filipino politicians are the best. Advertising executives can actually learn a thing or two about how to optimise exposure of any product from them. The results speak for themselves. Politicians whose names and faces are printed on almost anything – billboards, noodle packets or candy bars get maximum exposure. In fact, the competition for media mileage has become tougher among Philippine politicians lately and some have become blatant at putting their faces out there.

Ph VP Jejomar Binay: Associating a face to the concept of ‘relief operations’
Gone are the days when you see a politician’s name and face on flyers and other campaign paraphernalia only during campaign season. Nowadays, politicians vying for a position in the next election feel the need to print their names and logos on relief goods before distributing them to the victims of natural disasters. Subtlety and sensitivity has been thrown out the window, for sure.

Presumably, the idea behind printing a politician’s name and face is so that survivors who are going through a horrible ordeal – those who are also potential voters in the next election if they survive the ordeal – will remember the politician’s “generosity”. Who said Filipino public servants do not have foresight? They do, indeed. They just use it for personal gain.

Running for public office has certainly become a business in the Philippines. Those who have access to funds whether it is taxpayer’s funds or private funds can use it as capital to invest on product placements. If their campaign is successful and they win the election, the potential return on investment is huge. The kickbacks alone from bogus infrastructure projects channelled through bogus NGOs will be more than enough to offset their advertising costs.

Insta-Noynoy noodles: Which comes first, the product or the politician?
Only in the Philippines have political “product” placements become hugely successful. Come to think of it, there never was a time in Philippine politics when politicians were compelled to come up with a platform to win the voters’ hearts and minds. They don’t have to because the voters do not even ask them to come up with one.

The most daunting task for a candidate is how to become more popular than the other candidates especially when the others already carry popular names. This requires being at the right place at the right time to hand out the goody bags.

Politicians also commission the help of celebrity endorsers and they are quite effective. Often the celebrities themselves run for public office. All and all, it is always a win-win situation when a candidate is related to a celebrity or someone in the media. One politician who is benefiting from this convenient arrangement is Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Secretary Mar Roxas.

Being married to Korina Sanchez, who is a popular broadcast journalist in the Philippines can have a lot of upsides. This early, she seems to be working hard to get acquainted with a wider community. While a lot of Filipinos know who she is and her associations, not everyone knows her or is aware of her. After all, not everyone in the Philippines has a radio or television set.

Sanchez seems to be taking pains to close that awareness gap by trying to get more exposure from a bigger audience by reaching out outside of her studio. Her efforts in doing this include donating slippers, a favourite Filipino footwear, to the poor with the name “Korina” printed on it. One can be forgiven for saying that that is quite a peculiar way of putting her name out there. Not only will people end up stepping on her name, literally; in terms of product placement, positioning her name under someone’s muddy feet may not be the best idea.

Another upside of being married to a broadcast journalist like Sanchez is that her husband has easy access to media, which is the most effective tool for disseminating information, advertising and propaganda. If used properly, her position can propel her husband to the highest office in the land. However, if used inappropriately, her position can undermine her husband’s political ambitions. Recent events have proved to be the latter’s case-in-point.

A few days after super-typhoon Yolanda rammed Central Philippines on the first week of November, Sanchez used her radio show to defend her husband Roxas from CNN’s Anderson Cooper’s criticism of the Philippine government’s relief operation in Tacloban City, the most typhoon-ravaged area in the province of Leyte. While she didn’t directly address Cooper when she said, “blond reporter from CNN did not know what he was talking about”, Cooper was compelled to respond to her by challenging her to go to Tacloban City and see the situation for herself. Naturally, most people supported Cooper.

Cooper, who admitted to not knowing who Sanchez was, must have found it bizarre that someone who is speaking from the comfort of her studio office would contradict the accounts of someone who was actually on the ground in the disaster zone. It all made sense when he found out that she is actually married to Roxas who is in charge of the relief operations in the disaster zone.

A politician with a wife in media seems like a match made in heaven. That is, if the wife is subtle enough to avoid attracting a spotlight to that conflict-of-interest. Cooper’s observations on the ground should not have been an issue had Sanchez kept her mouth shut and taken the CNN correspondent’s words with a grain of salt. Unfortunately, she could not help but defend her husband from the criticism. Her credibility is now in tatters.

Sanchez’s reaction could have been instinctive. Women are born to protect their loved ones. As someone commented: “I don’t blame Korina for defending him. Asawa niya iyun eh!!” The problem is, instead of protecting, Sanchez only managed to hurt her and her husband’s image more. In the Philippines where a politician’s image is everything, the image-conscious couple did attract the wrath of Filipinos in social media for their arrogant behaviour. It might take more than donating slippers with the name “Korina” printed on it to recover from this public relations disaster.

Sanchez should have realised that she is no match for a world-renowned journalist like Cooper. Cooper has no known political affiliation in the Philippines and no other agenda other than to report what was going on in the disaster zone. It was obvious to a lot of people that Sanchez has gotten used to the celebrity treatment, but the foreign journalist did not know her and did not feel the need to show deference to a local celebrity or a politician’s wife.

Perhaps next time, Sanchez should either stay away from the microphone or quit defending her husband’s incompetence or better yet, quit her post as a broadcaster since her actions in front of the microphone are starting to become a liability to her husband’s political career. On second thought, she should keep doing what she’s doing. A few more public relations faux pas could prevent the next disaster – having Roxas end up the next Philippine President and her as the next First Lady.

  1. Great piece, Ilda! Indeed, that (Roxas becoming president and Korina, first lady) will be a major disaster if it happens!!!

  2. People hating on Ms. Korina Sanchez because of one mistake. Remember,
    no one is perfect. She gave
    slippers to children
    nationwide. How about you?

    1. Are you nuts? You think this is about hating a person? Ijets..

      This is all about professional ethics. Get that through your thick skull.

    2. One thing I’m getting from reading the comments here at GRP and elsewhere is that the Filipinos need to be taught logic, particularly about the fallacies of reasoning, especially argumentum ad hominem. GRP bloggers, anyone who’d like to write a piece about this? It will certainly be a big help!!!

    3. She gave slippers yet she never bothered to give something useful like FOOD and WATER, something that your president failed to provide for almost 1 week.

      Bitch, you dumb.

    4. I gave food, clothing and blankets and did not put my name on any of it. She should have spent the money she spent on having her name printed on a few hundred more sets of flip flops instead.

    5. And you think slippers can be eaten? Is that the best koring can do? Those victims need food and water even more because they are already hungry for a week.

    6. I’d argue that she does more harm than good by giving out those flip-flops…. as a side comment, can we all stop calling each other names? it’s really distressing and accomplishes nothing. If you think it’s a troll then ignore it.

    7. Well @kath if you will ask me, I give shoes. Why not give Bakya kasi pang Bakya ang banat mo.
      Gasgas na gasgas na yan. Isip ka naman ng iba. Yan eh kung may isip ka.

    8. @kathniel

      She gave slippers to children nationwide.

      Thanks goes rather to her sponsors or of ABS-CBN for the slippers. She just used them for self-promotion. It’s part of her career, and it’s really all about business.

    9. your comment saddens me because you are not seeing the big picture. the money used for printing something so inane could have been used to buy more food and other materials. and printing on flipflops are not recommended because it contains chemicals that can be harmful on prolonged contact with skin (that’s why havaianas recalled their products that has prints on it). a lot of people have given more and have done more than she will ever do but they do not resort to flagrant advertising saying they did this or that. and the money she used on that did not come from her, it came from donors.

    10. Twat! Sure I hate her my emo in the right place. Say mo apologista ng mga yellow 3rd.
      You have been watching too much TFC aka The Facking Channel. THINK…..

    11. I am not bias and im not even a filipino, but I tell it like it is! Since my last comment was removed, I will post it again. Korina Sanchez is a bitch who does not respect anyone, especially the filipino people. This cunt and her supporters including you, Kathniel are a bunch of no good lowlifes. I would love to take those cheap ass slippers and smack you, Kathniel, Korina the dirty whore, Roxas the stumbling idiot and Aquino the ultimate donkey, across the face with them until you wake up to reality. This incompetence will not be forgotten, especially by the American people. The Filipino people need to rise up and get rid of theses clowns. The people of The Philippines are intelligent hardworking people, who should never be in the position they are in. Continue to let these pieces of dog shit run your government and you will continue to be a 3rd world country.

    12. Since I am not filipino, I have nothing to gain, I am not bias. But, I do tell it as I see it, and since my last comment was removed I will add a new one. To Kathniel, you dumbass, how many pesos were you paid to defend Korina, Roxas, Aquino and the crooked filipino government? I would love to line you, Kathniel the asskisser, Korina the dirty whore bitch, Roxas the stumbling idiot and Aquino the clueless donkey and take those slippers and smack you all in the face until you wake up to reality. I can see from a half a world away what those thieves are doing to your country and you dont see it? Are you really that stupid, you dumb cunt! The people of the Philippines are smart, hardworking people and the best your elected officials can do is nothing? Come on, WAKE UP! Get rid of these corrupted clowns or remain a 3rd world country. Your country should have been the main powerhouse in the asian region but you have let every country surpass it. How can you be proud of that? Your government has let you down again, now is the time for you to remove these sorry ass motherfuckers, cocksuckers, pieces of shit.

    13. Kathniel, You are a moron, how many pesos were you paid to say that? I would love to line up Kathniel, Korina the bitch whore, Roxas the stumbling idiot and Aquino thst lazy bastard and take those cheap chinese made slippers and smack you all across the face with them, until you guys wake up to reality. You Kathniel belong in a hole with those pieces of crap. How dare you defend those incompetent crooks? You dumb cocksucking bitch! I know my comments will be deleted for speaking the truth, but I will be back!

    14. what about you? that is very presumptive question? yes via international organization as we do not trust the corrupt government. btw – slippers to children from whose fund? do you know?

    15. Hating what? LOL! By the way, Vicenzus, a.k.a. Kathniel? parang pangalan yan ng mga tipo ni Ka Freddie “Pedo” Aguilar – yung tirador ng mga deci, hehe!

  3. Why bother about Mar Roxas? He is already bungling his way to a myriad of political controversies. He burned himself out until PNoy plucked him from obscurity. Taking on the DILG cabinet position is a guarantee that he will never be VP or President.

    1. Actually, we do not care about Mar Roxas, but since he is holding a very crucial position NOW, he owes the people his very much needed performance as a DILG secretary. What do people care about his political career?

      And this I think is also one of the problem of the filipinos, we tend to focus more on a political personality rather than the more important things, such as, can the guy do his job well.

      1. Mar is the only one worse than the prez right now. Have you seen his interview regarding the looters and the police in Tacloban. Will make you want to pound your head against a concrete wall.

    2. Many of us across the country have experienced facepalm after facepalm. Nobody though seems to have brought up what Wharton feels every time that Mar opens his mouth. What a pathetic suck up, wuss.

  4. Roxas and sanchez.
    A match made in hell.
    What sick, tacky people they are.
    Lowlife on the 1st world scale.
    No wonder cooper would not know who she is, and no doubt already forgotten her. Best way.

    Also any normal country would prevent such obvious conflicts of interest and blatant ‘politicising’, which will only get worse.

    The other middle aged woman krus aquino is in the same mold.
    Is there no talent in the philippines, or is it just a monopoly of boy abunda etc and the gay mafia who close the door on opportunities and ensure they are the only bit players in tiwn.

    No wonder there are no arts or culture. these attention seekers wouldn’t know art if it farted in their face. p.s. is it true that korina sanchez suffers from periodic bouts of flatulence. another reason why she is never invited to social functions.

  5. I hope the Filipino people will really think on who to elect as President in the next election. Will it be the person Pnoy will recommend? Will it be the one who pays the most for your vote? Will it be the one your padrino or your employer choose? Please forget about political dynasties who wants you to vote for their wives or sons or daughters or uncles or aunts or nephews or nieces. Vote for those in action who show all the time that they espouse the cause of the Filipino people.
    Do you want somebody like Miriam Defensor Santiago or Rody Duterte. Do you want somebody like Bongbong Marcos, Imelda Marcos, JPE, Jinggoy Estrada, Bongbong Revilla? Pls vote for someone who can respond to our needs in disasters like Yolanda – when you are down and out you dont need speeches, you need rice and spam or sardine or dried fish.

    1. Based on the last election, I’m not going to hold my breath on that one. That is why these politicos are embedding their name in everything because name recall and popularity has been the name of the game.

      1. And so that they can justify, later on, what comes out of their “survey” and then ultimately, the results of the Hocus PCOS machines.

  6. Ilda,

    Those are some of the most disgusting displays of self-promotion the world has ever seen. Thank you for bringing them all together for us to have a collective chunder.

    I’ve been wondering about a supply of Australian corned beef that seems to have vanished and reappeared as Purefoods?

    1. @ Johnny Saint

      They would be lucky enough to get Purefoods. During the earthquake in Baguio, the imported canned goods were replaced by canned sardines.

      Hers’s the thing…..the disaster brought about by Yolanda and yes, by our idiotic government are all money-making opportunities. Don’t stop looking and thinking because as I’m writing this, I know that there are consultancy firms desperate to win a rebuilding project with any multilateral company. This is where the money is.

      The likes of Singson (DPWH) and ABAD (DBM) are usually top consultants of such projects. In fairness, the have carved their names in their respective fields. Unfortunately, the color yellow just flushed out their credibility!

      My point is: While we are crying and feeling sorry for the victims of Yolanda, the heartless have a more lucrative plans with the aftermath of Yolanda.

    2. @Johnny

      Yeah, I just had to write about this blatant self-promotion.

      It’s a real mystery where the goods donated by the international community end up. The survivors seem to get the local cheap version only.

  7. Epals… Put labels, symbols, pictures and political colors on relief packages, trucks and signboards and you are all set to manipulate the hearts and minds of gullible people. We all know now who the real sincere people are. Those who work silently without fanfare in serving the needs of our disaster victims are genuine/real heroes. Remember the epal people and come election time… do not vote for their political leaders and party mates! Really you cannot fool all of the people all of the time! Down with the yellow and other epals!

    1. This is what i call Narcisstic Advertising. The Philippine Govt or should i rephrase it The ” PHILIPPINE MAFIA” are systematically brainwashing the people conditioning their minds on who will be the next INCOMPETENT NIMKOMPOOP To vote to Take offic. SAD, SAD, SAD state of affairs. OH MY PHILIPPINES, WHAT HAD YOU BECOME? 1ST COUNTRY BACK IN THE 60S to second to Bangladesh. We are still the Sick Man of Asia. When i read Shskespesre’s COMEDY OF ERRORS. The Philippines comes into mind.

  8. We have media people like Korina Sanchez, Boy Abunda (whose partner is the VP for Entertainment of Pagcor……that’s daan na tuwid for us), and Kris Aquino. Then we have a president like Noytard (Bull Shit/Blatantly Stupid) Aquino, government officials like Mar Roxas and Oinky Soliman. With the likes of those idiots, we have more than a PR disaster!

  9. “..Cooper was compelled to respond to her by challenging her to go to Tacloban City and see the situation for herself.”

    Anderson Cooper, son of the heiress Gloria Vanderbilt, literally grew-up in a comfy affluent environment, but he would plunge into the most horrifically uncomfortable & dangerous locations with the best of them, as a true seasoned reporter should. How about madam Korina? Kamusta Ormoc?…hihihi

    Their gimmicks only work among the local pinoy masa, not among the wider and smarter international community.

    1. I can’t even imagine Korina wearing one of the slippers she donates.

      Some of our local journalists have superiority complex unlike Cooper who looks very down to earth.

        1. @ llda

          I meant “keep up the good work” for you and everybody else who sees the point clearly 🙂

      1. All together now:
        ‘Many THANKS, Cooper’
        He is responsible for bringing international attention to the tragedy in the Visayas hence the outpouring of foreign aid.
        The other one (Korina) enables Roxas and Acquino in to their false sense of do-betters and can-do-no-wrong for the Philippines.
        Unfortunately, in the meantime our Kababayans suffer.

  10. These “epal” practices make use of the cultural meme of “utang-ng-loob.” I sincerely hope though that utang ng loob is a dying practice in our country and people ignore the self-promotive noise of these personalities.

  11. Korina Sanchez is now caught between the Devil and the deep blue sea. She is like a Burundian Ass, who starved between two bundles of Hay on her side.
    Politics in the Philippines, is what we see. I am surprised, no one yet drop his pants. And showed his ass, or exposed himself. If someone does this: That Will be the Day.
    The negative side is: people voted for these people doing these kinds of election campaign. Running the country is a very hard work. You need: managerial talents; good educations ; work experiences; high intelligent qoutient; high emotional qoutient; good personality; can handle stresses easily…etc…
    This is what we got now, by electing unqualified people in office…DISASTER!!!

  12. Lady Sanchez has done more solid acts and good deeds for the country than a small group of dissidents that bleat and whine their supposed moral and intellectual “superiority” on this site.

    Both are on ground 0 doing what they can, I’m proud we have people like Korina and her husband as role models for our country!

    I’ve read alot of comment say how bad our president and government on this website. If you feel left out, participate in the real community instead of being keyboard warriors if you really want your opinion to count for more than bull dust. Everyone can say they “helped” in this relief effort, but no one has “seen” it, all you have helped is your own ego.

    You can indeed help and criticise, but do it in a place where people can see your actions and not just words on the internet, that’s where it counts.

    Noynoy is surely aware of foreign interests plotting his overthrow with some local help, his anti corruption crusade has made many enemies, many of whom I believe help incite discontent here via their paid hacks.

    I pray our president stays strong for the sake of our people, he should thwart the evil plans of the rebels by changing the law so he can continue to lead us past 2016. If there was a movement to such affect, I pledge my party my blood and service to help.

    God bless us, may he have mercy on the scum who would cede our nation to others~.

    1. @Proud Pinoy

      Oh please tell us in detail how your precious President is conducting his “anti-corruption crusade”. It doesn’t seem to include the corrupt people in his own party.

      You can indeed help and criticise, but do it in a place where people can see your actions and not just words on the internet, that’s where it counts.

      We can do whatever we want because this is supposedly a “free” country. It’s ironic that PNoy supporters like you insist that we live in a democratic country but discourage others from criticising the government. Quit being inconsistent.

    2. Your low standards explain why you can never rise above propaganda.
      Your low intellect explains why you need to admire simpletons.
      The issues clearly are beyond your capacity to understand and your capability to respond coherently or meaningfully.

    3. “Lady Sanchez has done more solid acts and good deeds for the country than a small group of dissidents that bleat and whine their supposed moral and intellectual “superiority” on this site.”

      You fail to see the long term needs of the country. You only see as far as where you nose ends, idiot.

      “Both are on ground 0 doing what they can, I’m proud we have people like Korina and her husband as role models for our country!”

      Mar is there for photo ops basically, and Korina wouldnt be there if not told to go there by some CNN reporter.

      “I’ve read………..helped is your own ego.”

      Again, you want us to leave our day jobs and go to ground zero and do the job that we have paid the government to do. You are simply stupid.

      “Noynoy …………. their paid hacks.”

      Which only proves that he is delusional. Really, foreign interests, paid hacks? These are people’s voices….to be heard and acted upon, not deflected and interpreted as threats to his reign.

      “I pray our president …….lead us past 2016. If there was a movement to such affect, I pledge my party my blood and service to help.”

      You forgot to take your medication, his term is only up to 2016 (God forbid, people had enough of his BS already), no re election, what the hell are you talking about?

      Seriously? Criticisms against the president are interpreted as threats? Go back to elementary, if I criticize a child’s work, it is because, I WANT MORE FROM HIM. Imbecile!!! (And that goes for your president too)

      1. Korina Sanchez is no more a lady than I am and she needs to get off her ugly white, uneducated ass and visit Tacloban before she opens her mouth and subjects to any more of her diarrhea-of-the-mouth inane comments.

    4. @Proud Pinoy
      You are a fucken moron, you are the type that kisses government officials and worships them. You are a piece of shit defending a whore who with her fake white skin and fake tits that looks down at you. Its your type of thinking that keeps these thieves in public office. You are a disgrace and if You ever defended these motherfuckers in front of me, I would spit you in the face and beat you with one of those cheap chinese made slippers Korina was giving away. You should be supporting those that have suffered not some bitch whore. How much are you getting paid to say those things? Proud Pinoy my ass, if you are proud of these assholes, then you are the biggest asshole of them all.

      1. Those chinese thongs slippers are cheap. I didn’t know she had her name printed on them, what ego. Could be she wants people to remind them to vote for her incompetent good for nothing husband. i can’t stand looking at both of them her face looks like a pig, he looks creepy. They made the country look bad. A. Cooper, I’m proud of you & Andrew Stevens. at least these professiona journalists showed they care more than those two idiots. Why don’t they get fired from their jobs for good!!!!

    5. Unfortunately, like the crazy P’noy, you are also delussional (about foreign plans to take over the Philippines). Are you sure they’re not ‘aliens’. Btw come down to earth (or please take your medications).

    6. Korina sanchez hasn’t done a thing but give out those chepos slippers to the children , big deal, I can’t figure out why these idiots has to have their names printed on every freakin things. I’ve given more to charities than this pig looking broad have ever done. Her husband just walks around like he’s doing something for the people, yes I saw the interview yakkity yak he couldn’t give Andrew Stevens the right answers. All he ever did was spin it. Disgusting. I have nothing negative to say about the Pres, he’s doing something good for the country by trying to rid of corruptions that thieves, Marcos & his wife started. Why the Philippines became backward, it was his & the shoe lady ‘s doing. I feel for the filipino people. They’ve suffered enough .I will pray for them.

      1. FYI, the president hasn’t done anything good for the Philippines, it is all about his clan, HLI and his KKKK.

        Ferdinand Marcos is already dead, since decades ago,just in case you didn’t know. The Aquino oligarchy had more than enough time to “rid the country of the problems” if they were really sincere. Problem is no, they wanted the APO out so they can do what they want to the Philippines…..idiot!

  13. Dear Ilda
    Great article!

    Also check this out
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-24992969

    PH president is really blaming the local government. So sad that politics and stupidity is costing people lives and money. In USA if the local government fails then the state takes over and if that also fails then the feds takes the ball. I don’t know if PH works the same way.

    I never understood why PH government would not invest in amphibious vehicles/boats/helicopters when you are a island nation.

    Also attacking Anderson Cooper just make you look even more insecure like North Korea or China’s CPP. :/

    So sad that PH can not be the next Japan. For those people who says don’t compare PH to Japan. Japan is rich! blah blah. Japan is an island nation exactly like PH with limit space/resources. just saying…

    1. @ Hitman

      Thanks for sharing the link. I’m copying and pasting the line that really hit me. I heard him say the exact line in the Filipino language.

      To all the idiots that still believe in Bull Shit|Blatantly Stupid Aquino, below is his famous line:

      “As your president, I am not allowed to get angry even if I am already upset,” he told reporters. He said that he would have to “stomach” his anger.

      I have said this before and I’ll say it again:

      Mr. Bull Shit President, have the emotional and intelligent quotient higher than ours and stop LOOKING AND SOUNDING LIKE A FREAKING IDIOT ON THE INTERNATIONAL SCENE.

  14. What happened Phailippines? Usually a reporter telling an inconvenient truth is dealt with quickly and effectively. Somebody fucked up this time.

  15. Kasi pinapanood at pinakikinggan niyo eh. Turn the tv or radio to another station pag time slot niya at mawawala yan sa balat ng lupa.

  16. Little off subject but some one brought up missing corn beef from Australia, what about Pancake syrup…dang I’ve been looking for months and now the pancake syrup is in the boxes sold by local chains and the price has doubled, there’s a local pancake syrup maker but it sucks just came out..better than nothing and the Nestle “crappy tasting mediocure product lines” corporation has a hold on coffee creamers (all suck badly) no more N’Joy sold in the grocery stores.

    I don’t dare dwell into politics anymore here I see from watching the news it’s a wasted breath but improving the food here and variety thats a serious cause.

  17. Read this in a facebook post somewhere. Don’t know the writer but he has good points:

    Korina Sanchez may deserve to be pulled down from her high horse for sounding arrogant at the heat of the moment. Or she may be right that Anderson Cooper made full conclusions based on one area alone, when he opted to confine his coverage and did not venture out to the severely hit areas. Don’t get me wrong, I am grateful for Mr. Cooper’s coverage. His reporting gives a better and detailed perspective of the situation especially to the people very far from here. As a fair view of Ms. Sanchez’s side, in humble opinion, Ms. Sanchez as a wife, knew her husband was in ground zero before it started and until now — added by the fact that after the storm Mr. Roxas lost his communications to the outside world, giving her fears beyond my imagination. If he was incompetent and in his work and if his presence and effort in the time he was (is) in Leyte is negligible then he will soon answer to the people.

    Ms. Sanchez should have remained professional and unbiased in these times. It is part of her work. Mr. Cooper has more advantage in this part because as an American, everything he sees is not as personal and as close to home compared to being a Filipino.

    As to the comment that local and international media should continue to make her feel ashamed and foolish by injuring her dignity and self-respect, esp. publicly due to her arrogant statement(s) is far too much punishment.

    Ms. Sanchez is one of Philippines’ most respected journalist and has done her share of good.

    I don’t know about you, but seeing her face plastered all over international reports with destructive criticism and worse disrespect from foreigners is more like insult to injury (present situation) — added that the focused is shifted from encouraging and asking for more international aid and medical help to highlighting an arrogant local reporter.

    To Ms. Sanchez, I truly hope you can fix this or redeem yourself.

    I hope I have not exceeded the limits of my mental capacity for I am no expert — so my apologies in advance.

    For the record, I am not a fan of Korina Sanchez. I don’t watch her shows nor have I met her. It’s good when some people give her positive criticism.

    Yes, she is a journalist and the standards are higher. She should have known better. As a public figure, it is her challenge to make things right.

    But you got to flinch when some people call her whore, evil, bobo (these are the least insults). Makes you want to ask: and your IQ is? So you never jaywalked? littered? made a mistake? made outburst?

    We are not talking about corruption here. We are talking about one statement. If she was Napoles, I would gladly see her jailed along with all (proven) corrupt individuals.

    She is also a Filipino. In an international arena: if her countrymen would not give her a fair trial and a good chance. Then, who will?

    From me, this is just an appeal for us to cease too much negative criticism, quick and harsh judgments, and intellectual arrogance in its finest (that if he/she is in a position he/she could have done better). At the end of the day, we are still in the same side of the fence, fighting the same cause, and crying and celebrating with the survivors — Because no one will love a Filipino more than a fellow Filipino.

    Help me get this to Anderson Cooper

    Anderson Cooper, I Also Saw What You Saw . . .

    Mr. Anderson Cooper, I want to thank you for reporting on the miserable conditions that you saw when you covered the Tacloban calamity scene 5 days after the typhoon. Your report came out on Tuesday, the day I was herding our relatives to the airport to finally get out of Tacloban. A day before, I was able to board the relief cargo plane of Air 21 Express from Manila to Tacloban when I was given the chance, getting there on Monday noon, and immediately I set out looking for my family members. On the way to the city, I saw what you saw, countless dead bodies strewn on the ground in various stages of decomposition, extensive destruction everywhere I looked, injured people walking on the streets looking like zombies – hungry, confused, desperate. The stench of death permeated all around us and sent chills down my spine. Countless times as our vehicle moved down the road, we were stopped by people in the streets begging for food. The roads were only passable by one lane, and along the way, I saw officers of the BFP (Bureau of Fire Protection) manually remove the dead bodies, along with the unbelievably massive amount of debris scattered all around. Because of this, what would normally take 40 minutes or less to traverse became an agonizing 2 hour ride. I saw what you saw, Anderson, and it angered me as much as it did you. I was also heartbroken, for this is the place where I spent some of the most wonderful summers of my childhood. I vowed to myself that I would speak up about the government’s incompetence as soon as I got out. If I ever get out. . .

    I arrived at the city hall tent as was part of my plan, because when I was still in Manila, I did hear that there was a command post of the DSWD (Department of Social Welfare and Development) where we can get celphone signals and internet connection. From there, I was supposed to make some inquiries before I would set out on foot to look for my relatives’ houses. It was while I was there that I saw with my own eyes how this government agency led by its head, Secretary Dinky Soliman, tirelessly and heroically worked almost 24/7 to immediately bring relief not only to the city of Tacloban but also to the outlying municipalities and towns that were affected by this calamity. I could not even begin to grasp the massive amount of work that needed to be done. I wanted to know why the government action seemed to be excruciatingly slow, but I couldn’t stay around long enough because my mission there was to find my relatives, and I did not want to be distracted. Thankfully, thankfully, I found them in two separate locations. They were cooped up in their houses, whispering in the dark, afraid to attract criminal elements that were reported to be going around looting. They could not believe I was there right before their eyes, and it was the first time in so long that they had a glimmer of hope that they would be rescued. We hastily fled their houses in the middle of the night, I placed all of them in one location, and then I went back to the city hall because it was a strategic point where I could get the proper celphone signals and stay connected to the outside world. I made some frenzied phone calls to my family in Manila, and it was from them that I found out that Cebu Pacific Air was offering humanitarian flights beginning Tuesday morning! All systems were in place for our eventual escape, and all I could do was pray to God that my plan would go on smoothly. After I instructed my cousin to look for 2 vehicles that could transport all 16 of us the next day to the airport, I decided to stay in the city hall overnight so that I could still keep in touch with my family in Manila. It was critical that I get all the assistance from the outside world so I could strategize better. Oh, how I proved now more than ever that communication or the lack of it could be one of the determinants for life and death!

    As much as I was staying around for the rest of the night, I started going around to ask the officials why things are what they are. These are what I found out:

    1. After the typhoon struck on the first day (Friday), the whole world lost track of the areas hit by the calamity. ZERO COMMUNICATION! It was even said that satellites could not locate Tacloban, Leyte, and Samar from the map, as if they were totally erased from the face of the earth. Unlike the tsunami event that hit Japan, where they were still connected to the outside world, Tacloban, Leyte, and Samar were shut out. How can we even begin to help them? And so, even as the magnitude of this calamity is being identified as similar to Japan’s tsunami event, circumstances were totally different. It was only the next day that we heard from Ted Failon of ABS-CBN what happened, and as the world watched in shock, it was then that we began to realize the massive destruction that hit this part of the country. This generalized cut of link to the outside world was to continue for the next 3 days, until Globe Telecoms was able to slowly bring back some of the signals on the 4th day.

    2. Unlike the tsunami that happened in Japan where their airport was not affected, supertyphoon Yolanda destroyed the airport, which was just beside a big body of water. I need not say more, for CNN did cover the airport scene. All equipment, radar, watch tower destroyed. Absolutely no electricity. With that, Tacloban was even more cut off from the outside world. Nobody could either come in or go out. No relief to be brought in, no means of transportation for the national leaders to arrive with, no means of escape for the suffering people . It was only on Sunday, or the 3rd day since the typhoon hit, that the airport had a generator to make it operational, because Air 21, a Philippine cargo company, took it upon themselves to bring some much needed generators to make the airport operational. And that is how the airplane of the Philippine president and the first few government C130’s was able to land in the airport. 3rd day served as the first day when things just started to move. And lest I be taken to task for mentioning the benevolence of Air 21, yes, I admit that this was the same cargo plane that I took to be able to get to Tacloban on Monday, but it is precisely because I heard that the company was one of the first to offer humanitarian help gratis to the government that made me act to get quickly hooked up with the owners of the company and be able to hitch a ride.

    3. The super typhoon decimated a big part of the population that so many people are still missing and unaccounted for to this day, and the rest who survived were either maimed and injured, were grieving for the loss of a loved one, struggling to cope with the tragedy that befell upon them, or simply looking for ways to take care of what remained of their family. In other words, everyone was a victim. And who are these people? These were the soldiers, police, red cross staff, social welfare staff, airport staff, bureau of fire protection (BFP) people, nurses, doctors, even the officials like the mayor and vice-mayor! And so if we look at things in this perspective, we begin to realize why there were no military and police to protect the people in the first few days, no staffers to repack or distribute relief goods, no BFP personnel to take care of clearing up the roads filled with dead people; in other words, there was hardly anyone there to put order into things as they were all victims themselves. I found out from one of the officials I spoke with that the people who came in much later to fill those places were flown in from Manila or pulled out from the other nearby towns that were not as badly affected. And so, those BFP people I saw clearing the road on Monday, the soldiers who were helping to slowly put order into the place, the red cross staffers who tried to address the health concerns of the victims, and even the DSWD staffers who were being deployed to evacuation centers and relief centers to distribute food and water, were mostly imports and volunteers from other places, and they were only able to start streaming in on the 3rd or 4th day! Therefore, the lack of manpower was not due to a lack of preparation but because of the unexpected loss or absence of these people who were supposed to be the government’s frontrunners!

    4. And of course, let’s not forget that logistics is the lifestream of relief operations, but how could logistics have been tapped properly this time around when all roads were practically closed, nearly all means of transportation were destroyed, and if there were any remaining vehicle to move around with, either the key could not be found or there was not enough fuel! Even the ships could not dock on Tacloban shores, because the Coast Guard could not risk inviting another naval disaster seeing that the bodies of water were littered with debris. Is all this due to an ill-planned disaster preparation? I don’t think so. For after all, we have heard that the warehouses filled with food and rice in preparation for the typhoon were all soaked with water, the fuel depots were flooded, and even the evacuation centers where the residents were filled into, precisely to prepare for the coming supertyphoon, practically served as the death chamber of these same people. In our language, the fact that these people were properly evacuated and the government had food stocks stored is enough proof that the government prepared for this. But then again, this was no ordinary typhoon. In fact supertyphoon Yolanda is now being called the worst typhoon in the WORLD’S history.

    These are only a few of the major points – not to justify, but rather to rationalize and logically explain why things happened as they did. To put things into their proper perspective. If America, which was hit by Hurricane Katrina, a far tamer weather disturbance in comparison to Supertyphoon Yolanda, struggled as well for several days and weeks to cope with the disaster, with then Pres. Bush earning the ire of your countrymen, how in the world could we expect that the Philippines, a much poorer country with very meager resources compared to the massive resources of a superpower country like yours, be able to miraculously stand up on its feet just a few days after this magnitude of a disaster? Even the spokesperson of the United Nations admits that they are really struggling to cope with the efforts to distribute help in this present situation.

    And so I write you, Anderson, to let you know that at this time, when our country is at its darkest moment, Filipinos need to rally for each and every one of our countrymen as well as for our leaders. We hear that our government officials like Sec. Voltaire Gazmin, Mar Roxas, and Dinky Soliman arrived at Tacloban a day before the supertyphoon was to hit the place, meeting it head-on. And even as they struggle with their work and commit lapses along the way, we see that our leaders are doing the best that they could under the present circumstances. I still hope that you do your part to report on the truth and cry out in disgust if you find the conditions detestable. We appreciate what you and Andrew Stevens and the rest of the media are doing, because it keeps our leaders on their toes as they know that the whole world is watching them.

    And even as we grieve, we are immensely grateful and overwhelmed with the help, support, and love that the whole world has sent our way. As I write this, it is the 7th day since the disaster struck, and now we see more and more people able to escape out of Tacloban. We did our own escape on Tuesday through Cebu Pacific Air, the airline that was the first to offer humanitarian flights for evacuees, with absolutely no charge! More and more roads are opened up for transportation, buses and trucks are filing in to bring relief, as well as to bring the people out. Same goes for the military ships which can now dock on ports. More and more people are given relief distributions, and doctors and paramedics from all over the world are able to come in to set up their medical missions. The ten choppers brought in by the USS warship was an immense boost to ease the logistical nightmare we have initially encountered, with just 3 government C130’s for use in the first few days. The UK, Australia, Japan, Sweden, the Netherlands, Germany, Israel, Hungary, Singapore, UAE, and many other countries sent in valuable equipment and transportation aside from aid. And I’m sure it’s hard not to notice, but practically all the citizens of this country contributed in his or her own way to ease the pain of our fellow Filipinos. Corporations readily offered their products, services, and facilities for use in this whole national operation. Our bayanihan (helping each other) spirit is a source of great pride! All told, we expect the sufferings to ease up a little, but it would be ignorant to say that we expect all things to be well. Tacloban, Samar, and Leyte will never be the same again. Our country will never be the same again. But if there is one thing that we have learned, it is this: we need to bring back the lost trust of the people with our government. For the longest time, we have been ruled with corruption and greed. Even to this day, we continue to suffer the effects of these evil thieves in our government. I wish they had been the ones swept up by the storm surge and thrown back into the seas. But not all are rotten tomatoes. I hope that Filipinos will now learn how to choose their leaders. It is time for the Filipino to stand as a nation and be strong again.

    Anderson Cooper, after all this is done, please do not forget our country. If you have the time, I invite you to go around the other parts of the country which you will find to be extremely good-looking, and you will also find out that the Filipinos are some of the most wonderful and kind-hearted people in the world. Aside from this, I would also request that you and your colleagues do the following:

    1. Please please please do whatever you can to make sure that the immense aid in CASH that we have been receiving and continue to receive, rightfully go to the rehabilitation of the devastated areas and not to the pockets of the corrupt few. Along the way, you might want to do a prize-winning documentary on the corruption problems of our country. On this, you will do well to be introduced to Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago to get most of your resource materials. With her by your side, your job will be half-done and I assure you an immensely enjoyable experience in her company.

    2. Because you are Anderson Cooper, a well-respected veteran journalist who the world listens to, we ask you to please help the cause of our Philippine Climate Change Commission negotiator Naderev Sano for concrete steps to halt global warming. It is global warming and climate change that cause these disasters to happen, and the Philippines is said to be one of the countries most greatly impacted by this. We have suffered for so long, how long will we suffer more?

    3. Anderson, can I also ask you to commend and show the pictures of our brave men and women as they perform their tasks, just as you show the ineptness and slow response of our officials to the current situation? Just to be fair to both sides and create an equal balance into the picture. The last thing we want is to see our dedicated volunteers lose their morale.

    4. Lastly, I ask that someday, when the time is right, and the country has hopefully risen up from this fall, please come back and show the world that this time we did right. If that day does not come, I will be the first to get out of the Philippines and declare it a banana republic forever.

    Anderson Cooper, for all that you and your colleagues do, we salute you! Please help our country as we struggle to be a strong nation at last. Thank you.

    1. Well said. I agree with everything you wrote. But maybe you can do something about those self-serving idiots who only cares about themselves. Binay who purposely delayed the relief goods to make sure he prints his name on every sack of rice before delivering them while the victims were dying of starvation. Just like Ms. K. Sanchez had to have her name printed on those cheap thongs as if she was the one who designed them. Oh, and maybe have her fired for having a big mouth for insulting AC. So she finally took AC’s advice to get her bun to Tacloban to see for herself what’s really going on.

  19. By the way, Insta-Noynoy noodles meme is a FAKE one. Please be a responsible blogger because one public mistake can ruin your credibility in this cruel world today.

    1. People in the affected area saw these pancit canton with the yellow ribbon. How can you say it’s fake. Typhoon vicitms’ word against yours.

      1. People in the affected area saw these pancit canton with the yellow ribbon. How can you say it’s fake. Typhoon vicitms’ word against yours.

        — oh really I AM FROM THE AFFECTED AREA? WHERE EXACTLY? WHO GAVE IT? DETAILS PLEASE

        1. I think this person has a comprehension of a dead mule. Don’t try to defend yourself because it only makes you dumber, which is happening to you right now.

          I guess this person is a relative of “kathniel.”

        2. And I think Ilda asked you to provide a link detailing the government’s denial in providing instant noodles with a yellow ribbon on it? Where is your proof? Ang tagal naman…

        3. @ IAN: “rather live in a fantasy land where fiction reigns than the truth.” — Who is giving CREDIBLE links and information FROM REPUTABLE sites? and who is just basing with no CONCRETE justification. Walk the talk. BWAHAHAHA

    2. So are you implying that the yolanda surivors that saw the pancit canton with noynoy’s name on them are lying?
      Wow, you clearly didn’t think this through didn’t you?
      Malacanang never denied that they were fake so you’ll have to prove that what you are saying is true otherwise, you’ll only make a fool of yourself here.

      1. oh really I AM FROM THE AFFECTED AREA? WHERE EXACTLY? WHO GAVE IT? DETAILS PLEASE?

        “Don’t be deceived…I write to report a malicious blog entry uploaded to your site http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-1061775 titled ‘Dirty Philippine Politics in shameless display’ which contains a photo of repackaged noodles with a yellow ribbon label on them, which user Male22maroon alleges are being distributed by President Benigno S. Aquino III to victims of Typhoon Haiyan,” Valte said in her message, which was also posted on her Facebook account.

        READ THE FACTS: http://www.abs-cbnnews.com/nation/11/18/13/palace-blasts-fake-photo-repackaged-goods

        1. So you actually believe what AbiFail Valte says?
          You are also citing your sources from abs-cbn.
          Don’t you know that they don’t have any credibility?
          Once again, you have proven yourself to be a stupid sack of shit contrary to what you claim yourself to be.

  20. Matagal na atang wala si Korina. Akala ko 1 week lang suspension niya?

    I wonder kung sibakin kaya siya, would she start a pseudo-blogsite, secretly funded by yellow supporters, like Maria Ressa?

        1. How can we give importance to your “critical analysis” when a simple googling of a photo to determine its authenticity was not even done? You made analysis on fake photos? ARE YOU REALLY HELPING? I’ll go with the EMO one. She was actually there and not behind some computer.

        2. “Insta-Noynoy noodles: Which comes first, the product or the politician?”

          The fake and fake

        3. Looks like someones totally butthurt because their favorite reporter lady has been outed as a fraud.
          What’s the matter Troll?
          Your brain can’t handle the truth?

          — The home of AC DELETED the Article.

          It SO FUNNY how all of you bash SANCHEZ because she said there was government present in Tacloban in person of HER HUSBAND who was ALREADY there BEFORE the storm came (fact). UNLIKE AC who came with the PHILIPPINE AIRFORCE days LATER.

          and YOU wont EVEN ADMIT that THERE is a BIG DISCREPANCY in this article? Call me HYPOCRITES anyone?

        3. @Pinoy Din Ako: Oh I get it, you are a dying breed of IDIOTS who would rather live in a fantasy land where fiction reigns than the truth.

          Yes, we know you are an idiot from your posts alone.

  21. @ilda (writer), Your critical thinking and analysis of what transpired between Korina and Cooper is well explained.I hope writers follow your way of informing the reading public and follow and practice objective journalism.

  22. There is a saying
    ‘ when in rome.. dont do a korina sanchez’

    She can act like a peasant in her own country, but she should not make her lack of class so obvious when abroad.

    As if she could ever be a first lady!

      1. She won’t. mar is ensuring that so at least he is doing one good thing! Even her colleagues try to avoid the pudgy attention-seeker, and voters detest her.

        Korina sanchez, the diva who is lost in a land which reality forgot.

      2. Valte asked to have that article taken down because she’s afraid that the truth will come out.

        Once again, you lose twat.

          What kind of content is welcome here?

          2. It’s true. iReports should be about real events, or real opinions on events. It’s not news if you make it up.

          – The home of AC DELETED the Article.

          It SO FUNNY how all of you bash SANCHEZ because she said there was government present in Tacloban in person of HER HUSBAND who was ALREADY there BEFORE the storm came (fact). UNLIKE AC who came with the PHILIPPINE AIRFORCE days LATER.

          and YOU wont EVEN ADMIT that THERE is a BIG DISCREPANCY in this article? Call me HYPOCRITES anyone?

          CNN and ABS-CBN is NOT PROOF ENOUGH? HAHAHA!! Only this writer’s word is TRUE? HUWAAAAAATTTTTTT

        3. Looks like you are at your wit’s end.
          You think you are winning but in reality, you are only making a bigger fool of yourself.

          TROLL HARDER

  25. Hey BIG BOYS: TROLLING aka Sharing:

    “From what I have been reading in this website in the past hours, there are dozens of people here who said things could have been done better by them or that they have better ideas than what the government have. In effect, these critics are claiming to be experts at public administration, disaster management, logistics, etc. I wonder if they are, or have actually been, doing that sort of stuff professionally . With what they are saying, it looks like they could have done a lot more from Day 1 of the tragedy, much better than what the government did. They could do much better job than presidents Aquino or Bush. So I wonder why they are contented with just sitting in front of their computers and writing their negative opinions in this website? Why haven’t they ran for office so their talents and extraordinary abilities (that the present government doesn’t have) can be of benefit to the Filipinos or other countries? Or why are they not working as officers or as consultants for international organizations who definitely need their claimed talents? Or have they even tried to actually do in real life what they claim to know? Have they actually participated in any crisis management or rescue mission? Why not? Let’s hear from anyone of them. NO EXCUSES PLEASE.” rborgonia

    What a lousy piece of shit you are.” —

    Chillax. your blood pressure? BWAHAHA

    REPOSTING MY POINT AGAIN (eyes on the board please and stop thinking of NEW insults so you wont sound BORING)

    That is my point. WHY SHOULD we even listen to this writer when she didn’t even checked first the pics she posted? even CNN deleted there pic of this. By the way that pic of BINAY was taken in 2009. HAHAHA

      1. Don’t believe me. BELIEVE CNN and ABS-CBN when they issued the a statement regarding that three pics. That 3 pics posted in this article first originated in CNN. Or are you BIGGER than them? bwahahaha!!

        “CNN PRODUCER NOTE This iReport was removed because it violates CNN’s Community Guidelines. The photograph, which was said to be of Typhoon Haiyan food aid, was actually taken last year.
        – davidw, CNN iReport producer”

        1. FYI, anyone can post on iCNN and anyone can ask to have any article on that page taken down, you twit.

          By the way, “Johnny Dwerp?” Is that really the best insult you got?
          You clearly don’t have any ammunition left against me or anyone else.
          Grow a brain, donkey raping shit eater.

        2. I might not be bigger than them but at least I’m not the one that admitted here that he’s a stupid trollfag and at least I’m not the one whose comments were erased recently by the admins. -_-
          Once again, you lose.

      2. What’s with your conflicting statement? You say you never stoop down to insults when you’ve already called Johnny Derp, “Johnny Dwerp?” And you never used one word of insult against him?

        Hey, at least you admitted you’re an idiot trollfag.

        1. He’s not really that bright isn’t he?
          What do you expect from someone who admitted that he’s an idiotic trollfag?

      3. Lame comeback, please try harder. And try to spell because it only adds to your idiocy. It’s “YOU’RE,” not “YOUR.”

      4. Don’t let the door hit you on the way out, faggot.

        What a waste of space, can’t even troll hard enough.
        It would be funny if you weren’t so pathetic at trolling here.

      5. You are still useless, no need to let us know that you are “repacking goods” when clearly you are just sulking in your sad little hole.
        For a trollfag, you sure suck.

  27. Hahaha, looks like that trollfag’s comments have been deleted. Serves him right for being so stupid to try attacking this blogsite in the first place.

    Susugod nga, magisa pa.
    Ang tanga mo talaga. -_-
