Anderson Cooper Defends Philippines Coverage (VIDEO)

Anderson Cooper addressed criticism from a TV commentator in the Philippines on Thursday who claimed the CNN news anchor had seen no presence of the Filipino government on the ground in Tacloban. Korina Sanchez also happens to be the wife of the country’s Interior Minister, who recently said the Phillipines government had everything under control after this week’s deadly typhoon, a report Cooper refuted on the same day in CNN’s coverage.

“The show sent out a tweet based on something I said, which was –and I think you would probably agree with this, that I’ve seen very little large-scale Philippine Military in the surrounding areas,” Cooper said.
