Anderson Cooper, one of the primary anchor of the United States-based CNN, was in the Philippines as part of CNN special coverage for Typhoon Yolanda. The veteran journalist flew in the Philippines with CNN reporters, do a live program coverage for Anderson Cooper 360°.

Cooper is currently in ground zero in Tacloban City, Leyte, one of the worst affected areas hit by super typhoon Haiyan.

Here’s some of the reports made by Anderson Cooper:

“It’s a miserable, miserable situation here. It is not getting better day by day. We’re now entering the fifth day since the storm hit here in Tacloban … You would expect maybe a feeding center that has been set up five days after the storm. We haven’t seen that, certainly not in this area,” Cooper reported, speaking with Jake Tapper, CNN anchor on The Lead newscast on Tuesday.

“It is a very desperate situation, among the most desperate I’ve seen in covering disasters in the last couple of years,” he added.

Anderson Cooper was merely describing what he was seeing. I’m a Filipino from California and I would rather watch CNN because they’re not biased. Anderson has covered many calamaties worldwide and for him to show his frustration with how everything is being handled (lack of government presence, disorganized, etc.) is how everyone in Tacloban feels. People don’t need to listen to Anderson. Just listen to the people of Tacloban. They too are wondering why the government is slow to help. Anderson was merely stating the majority feeling of everyone at ground zero.

You know why, it is because Tacloban and the rest of the Visayas region political leaders are not PNoy’s allies. He rather wants to see the victims suffered and died than helping them to recover. This is a decades political issue, Marcos vs Aquino.

For Andeeson Cooper thank you for your honesty and concern to the filipino people. For Korina Sanchez, shut up and stay home! Too early to campaign for your husband.

This Cooper should be careful in he’s report. You should be fair . I understand Korina being the wife of Mr. Roxas. Everybody was tired and we knew that everybody is doing their best even the phil government , so don’t say no government official was there. Tacloban is big …….You should be fair also.

He was fair. He merely reported what was TRUE not SUGAR COAT it with half truths and inspirational talk while in his ACTUAL EYES this was HAPPENING.

Abay, mahigit ISANG LINGGO na nga ano ba nakikita natin sa BALITA. Sa Airport mismo kung saan DAPAT MARAMING SUPPLIES na dumating. May nakita po ba tayong nagPAPAKAIN sa mga TAONG bakas na BAKAS sa mga MUKHA nilang ang matinding PAGOD AT GUTOM.

Subukan ninyong walang makain ng LIMANG ARAW ng malaman ninyo ang HIRAP ng mga TAO run.

O sa AIRPORT na yun, May NAKITA ba kayong mga tao ng ating GOBYERNO na nagPAPAKAIN sa mga TAO run? Araw araw INAASAN namin SANA MAKITA na sa AIRPORT man lang magPAGMALASAKITAN na MAPAKAIN yun mga NASALANTA.

NagHIHINTAY na nga lang sila makasakay para makalabas ng lugar nila dahil WALANG MAKAIN. Sa AIRPORT man lang SANA may nagpapakain man lang. My gulay. Ilang araw ako nanood na pinapakita lagi yun airport pero YUN AT YUN pa rin ang situation na NILATHALA ni Anderson.

What can be MORE FAIRER than the TRUTH?

Ms. Korina, the desperate situation in Tacloban is a picture of no government assistance. Foreign reporters just simply reports what they see. In the Philippines, Ms. Korina, you really know what you are – pro-ad lang ang mister mo, kaya pro ad ka rin!

I thinks anderson cooper aligation is base on reality situation in tacloban and the bases of korina sanches is depending on the government which is in reality of the government react in real situation (slow to react) and korina is the wife if current DILG secretary now setting in government position.

We must not blame on the government on everything wrong that has happened, nor lambasting one or both of them. This is not the time to criticize what is truly happening. Its a major catastrophe, not some publicity stunt. We cannot expect the government nor the volunteers of both is like some “SUPERMAN” to be strong and quick in handling this problems. May we all be reminded that hundreds of thousands or maybe millions are displaced, hungry, and whatever else you would describe it. We must all be united to do whatever we can in our own little way as much as possible.

I went to Tacloban right after the typhoon to check if my 2 brothers, a sister and their children survived it. I stayed there for three days and my first impression was “Where is the government?” I could hardly feel the presence of the government. I experienced walking from San Juanico Bridge to downtown Tacloban back and forth. I also felt despair as if I was also one of the victims due to so much fatigue. Mr. Cooper was right.
