ABS-CBN TV news anchor Korina Sanchez is on the hot seat after making some 'numb' comments with Noli De Castro, wishing the entire typhoon to hit only Japan.

MANILA, PHILIPPINES -- ABS-CBN News TV anchors Korina Sanchez and Noli De Castro slammed slammed after the controversial comments they made regarding Typhoon Ruby (Hagupit).

It was in the end of December 3 episode of TV Patrol where Korina Sanchez, Noli De Castro, and Ted Failon started to exchange their insights about the typhoon. Sanchez said that we (Filipinos) can sheer away the typhoon by praying but her next comment had gone too far enough to break out another controversy against her.

Korina Sanchez wished the entire typhoon to hit Japan instead.

Here's a rough Tagalog and English transcript of their discussion:
Korina Sanchez: Kaya pa natin idasal yan para lumihis. (We can still pray for the typhoon to change route)

Noli de Castro: Alam mo, sana’y hati na lang tayo. Kalahati sa Pilipinas, kalahati sa Japan. (You know what, let's hope that typhoon will split into half. Half for the Philippines, half for Japan)

Korina Sanchez: Puwede bang sa kanilang lahat? (Could the entire typhoon just hit Japan?)

Noli de Castro: Huwag naman. (Don't hope for it)

Korina Sanchez: Sa kanila na lang lahat. Parang mas kaya nila. (They [Japan] can have the entire typhoon. Seems like they can deal with it more than us)

Noli de Castro: Baka sabihin ng mga Hapon ay…(Japanese people might say...)

Korina Sanchez: Parang mas kaya nila. (I think they can handle it)

This sparked netizens to outrage against what these two news anchor did. They believe that this is unethical and very unprofessional. They are also questioning the ABS-CBN's standard when it comes to journalism.

If we can remember, Korina was involved in the controversy during the Typhoon Yolanda last year when she accused CNN journalist Anderson Cooper of not knowing what he was reporting about. Cooper responded to her and dared her to go to Tacloban to see the actual situation.

Netizens are urging both Sanchez and De Castro to make a public apology, given that Japan was one of the first nations to help Philippines during the Yolanda aftermath.
