It would be recalled that in 2013, there were speculations that ABS-CBN suspended Sanchez for one week after she spoke against Cooper's coverage, although the "official version" is that she went on leave.
One indicator that Adobo Republic's article was a satire is that it quoted the "fired" news reader as saying in reaction to her receiving the boot, "Well and good! This will give me time to focus on campaigning for my husband in his 2016 bid to become elected as the next president. I'll have the last laugh when I become the First Lady."
For one, Roxas insists that his eyes are not on 2016 (yet), but on helping Ruby victims. But the best proof is that Sanchez is still on TV Patrol, although she would probably be best remembered for her Japan remarks.
