Professional Photographer: CBS Used Color To Make Steve Bannon Look Bad

The long-awaited CBS “60 Minutes” interview with former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon aired Sunday night – and Bannon didn’t look too hot. Just look at this still from the broadcast of a red-eyed Bannon:

At best he looks tired, and at worst he looks drunk. But professional photographer Peter Duke thinks CBS used color saturation to make Bannon look bad on purpose.

Duke, who has photographed people like Milo Yiannopoulos, Scott Adams, and James O’Keefe, published a video on YouTube arguing that he’s “met Steve Bannon, and I know what he looks like….[H]e doesn’t have pronounced red circles around his eyes, that’s not who he is in real life.” Further, Duke noticed that the shots of Charlie Rose were far less saturated than those of Bannon, and so Duke set out “comparing the two shots of Steve Bannon and Charlie Rose to see what kind of differences I could find, and it was very interesting.”

Duke then adjusted the shots of Bannon to match those of Rose, and the side-by-side comparison of the before and after is striking:

Watch Duke’s entire video below – it’s definitely worth your time.

It would hardly be a surprise if someone in the editing room at CBS decided to use professional tricks in order to make Bannon look like a bleary-eyed drunk. It’s no secret that the mainstream media is unkind to conservatives and anyone who goes against the progressive liberal agenda.

The saddest thing about this is that Bannon’s “60 Minutes” interview was nothing but hardball honesty. Had viewers been allowed to see his true appearance, perhaps they would have decided for themselves how they feel about Bannon and his nationalist ideas. But, instead, CBS decided to play into the mainstream media lie that he’s nothing but a bigoted monster.
