That reminds me of a PC by the name typhoon which I checked a while ago. Just for fun, of course. It looked like it's been pounded by an NSA storm. :P

That is the official number. ARD broadcasts only official messages.

that is your way to read it. My interpretation:

ABS-CBN is typical american fear mongering

ARD is typical calm and serene journalism.

Police in the Philippines say they fear 10,000 people may have died in the devastation wreaked by Typhoon Haiyan.

No worries.

Obama was able to complete his 150th round of golf as the economy crumbled, his namesake law destroyed 1/6 of the US economy, and the Pinoys perished.

Hope & change

(Great job supporting him! You guys rock!)

Absolutely tragic. I have friends in Cebu, many of whom have family in Leyte. Haven't heard from a few of them after they said they couldn't contact any family members at home.
