CNN led the coverage of the violent protests in Argentina this afternoon. Veteran CNN producer Alec Miran was the key to the coverage. His phoners provided compelling narration to the live video from affiliates. “I’m hearing a lot of popping of — I guess another tear gas has been fired. People are running away from where the police are,” he said during The Situation Room.

> CNN International simulcasted Wolf Blitzer’s coverage for at least an hour.

> “SitRoom set really works for this sort of breaking news with screens showing multiple feeds from local media,” an e-mailer said.

> I love this FOXNews.com headline: “10,000 Protesters Greet Bush”
