And Nic Robertson was in Rome, where the bodies of six Italian paratroopers killed in Afghanistan were returned home to a heroes' welcome:

With terrorist arrests in New York and Colorado making headlines, Betty Nguyen spoke with Peter Bergen about the seriousness of the situation and whether it is now contained:

(And although it's becoming a more common error as time passes, Peter Bergen did not "conduct" the bin Laden interview, he produced it. The reporter who conducted it was Peter Arnett.)

Last week I posted some of Cal Perry's reports about the release of the 'shoe-thrower' after almost a year in an Iraqi prison. Friday Michael Holmes showed the BackStory of how Cal got the story despite having the flu:

I really think Reza Sayah is doing a great job covering the events that have unfolded over the past months in Iran. His passion for his home country comes through.

The whole culture of the Middle East is so far removed from anything I have ever experienced. I am so fascinated by it.

Reza Sayah does a great job because he has found a way to connect with the American audience. He has assimilated enough to show and appreciation for our culture and still show a great respect for his own.

Is it true that CNN will have a new set in
Atlanta.TV Newser says this is so. Boy that
would be a welcome sight. I really think CBS
has the best look when it comes to graphics
and banners. Let's hope this leads to less
clutter on the screen.
