Following the controversial comment of Korina Sanchez last December 3 on TV Patrol, stating that she wishes Typhoon Ruby will head towards Japan, many people have been waiting on what’s next for her career.

Last year, Sanchez was also involved in a controversial issue with CNN’s Anderson Cooper when she commented on her radio show that Cooper “does not know what he is talking about.” In response to this, Cooper also declared a statement daring Sanchez to visit Haiyan-stricken areas. This made news, not just on the internet, but on the international media as well.

So, has PM Abe already declared Sanchez as persona non grata in Japan in response to her comment?

In an article from So, What’s News?Abe was quoted saying,

I am very saddened to hear reports of schadenfreude coming from a TV anchor, who just last year, was put in her place by Mr. Anderson Cooper of CNN.

Although the website is a satirical one, many netizens reacted to the news and it was even posted in other websites like Southomer, Amigong Bisaya, and Centertech News.

Currently, the article has gained more than 100 votes and over 1,000 comments on So What’s News?. This maybe what people have been expecting since Sanchez made her tactless comments on TV. Moreover, it seems like many Roxas-Sanchez haters are enjoying the satirical news. With this kind of response from the public, people are now anticipating what will happen next. So far, this is not yet the end of this issue, but the beginning of yet another bad publicity for the news anchor.
