Members of the international media covering the effects of super typhoon Yolanda in Visayas have slammed the Aquino administration for its slow distribution of relief goods and aid to the victims, a television report said Thursday.

GMA News TV's News To Go said Anderson Cooper of CNN said in a post on his Twitter account on November 12 that "there is no real evidence of organized recovery or relief" in Tacloban City.

"The search and rescue never materialized," he further said.

He added that "it is demolition and not a construction job here."

He also noted that he has yet to see a large Philippine military presence in the city.

Cooper also said that the people in Tacloban have great dignity and deserve better than what they have gotten.
