ABS-CBN Network suspends Korina Sanchez for one week – Report
Following the controversial comment and CNN's response, ABS-CBN news anchor Korina Sanchez is reportedly suspended for one week.
According to sources, the TV network made it look like Sanchez will only be leaving for a vacation.
The report first came from PhilStar.com saying: “Isang linggo palang hindi mapapanood si Korina Sanchez sa TV Patrol. Balita ng source, bakasyon daw ang press release na pinalulutang.”
In a recent 'The World Lead' episode, CNN flashes Korina Sanchez‘s photo on the big screen with caption "How Dare You, CNN?" as anchor Jake Tapper interviews Anderson Cooper.
Jake Tapper said, "Despite the obstacles and clear difficulties the government is having in getting relief to those who need it, some in the Philippine media would rather focus on the government's image".
"A radio host in the Philippines who just happens to be married to the country's interior secretary accused our own Anderson Cooper of coming on "the lead" claiming he saw no presence of the Philippine government on the ground in Tacloban. Only problem is Anderson never said that." he added.
