Korina’s Storm

The Filipino netizens have spoken on the recent dispute made by Korina Sanchez against the respected journalist Anderson Cooper. Interestingly enough, foreign media have shared the same observations based on actual and factual data they’ve gathered during  super-typhoon Yoland that struck the Philippines.


And although I share many of the people’s sentiments on Korina’s ill-advised statement that has resulted in her suspension, I do not subscribe to a personal attack against her and made with erroneous facts as described in this picture that’s been going around on the internet.

She may have her own behavioral problems, that’s a given, and her flawed character had revealed much of its intent with her recent misstep but, please, let’s keep the facts straight.

kat2I give no value on a person’s social and economic status although I respect it; however, I give more value on a person’s dedication in work, commitment to excellence, and loyalty.

All these could have been avoided had Korina Sanchez just remained silent at a time when her statement would’ve been under scrutiny as she’s the wife of Interior Secretary Mar Roxas.

  1. Anderson is from Yale darling, not Harvard. Not to say that he comes from an family of shipping and railroad empires, and they have a university to their name. Another correction is that her mother worth $200 Million, not a billionaire, the Vanderbilt family is, not his mother, but cooper himself gain $10 annually from his reporting job (basic salary) and get paid $40,000 per hour to speak at event. His net worth himself is $100 million. Korina is nowhere close.
