WATCH: Photographer Exposes How 60 Minutes Altered Video to Give Bannon “Red Eyes”

Steve Bannon’s appearance on “60 Minutes” gave CBS some of the best ratings they’ve seen in weeks, and while Bannon certainly did an incredible job, the liberal media had the last laugh with their selective editing and loaded questions.


Bannon, Trump’s former Chief Strategist, expertly navigated the condescending remarks and ridiculous questions which he was bombarded with by CBS anchor Charlie Rose. He was able to point out the media’s massive bias against Trump, how we need to start putting America first, and how Donald Trump is not, in fact, a racist.

But something struck many viewers as odd. With some examination, it seems that the color adjustments were used to purposefully make Bannon’s eyes look demonically red, and his lips as if he’s wearing makeup. Charlie Rose, on the other hand, seems to have a much more “cool” complexion.

Well, it turns out that these suspicions are not unfounded. A famous photographer, who’s done work for Milo Yiannopolous before, just released a video explaining how CBS used underhanded video editing tactics to make Bannon look bad, and to make Rose look better.

Below is a transcript of the video:

I wanted to talk a little bit today about color correction and grading, and how it can be used to make people look better or worse on television. This is a still frame of Steve Bannon from the 60 Minutes interview that’s going to run tonight. And the first things that I noticed was that there were red circles around his eyes and his lips looked cherry red. And I also noticed the curtains in the background looked really orange.

Now I’ve met Steve Bannon and I know what he looks like. He’s Irish and he does kinda have paper skin. But, he doesn’t have pronounced red circles around his eyes. That’s not who he is in real life. So I started comparing the two shots of Charlie Rose and Steve Bannon to see what kind of differences I could find, and it was very interesting. The first thing that you need to take a look at is the coloring saturation. Those drapes in the Breitbart Embassy are actually the same color. Now the light lighting them might be slightly closer or farther away, which accounts for the brightness, but they are the same color. And you can see from these two shots that they are defiantly not the same color.

If you take a look at Charlie Rose’s shirt, it’s about 13 unit of blue from neutral, which means that they’ve graded it into a cooler shot. That does a couple of things. It makes his make-up look less clownish and it also knocks down the contrast a little bit. So, I’m going to do the same thing to Steve. I’m going to make it a little bit bluer and I’m also going to lighten up the shadows a little bit. And Voila, the blood shot eyes are gone.

Now I’m going to do to Charlie what they did to Steve. I’m going to kick up the situation, the red, the orange, and i’m going to increase the contrast. So here are the two shots before and after, before and after. And here’s what the pictures would look like if they were graded similarly. Steve doesn’t have red circles under his eyes, Charlie’s make-up is subtle, can’t really tell he’s got it on, unless you’re looking. And Steve doesn’t look like the monster they want you to think that he is.

This, in and of itself, should speak volumes as to CBS and their integrity. No news company should engage in such ridiculously covert tactics, meant to make someone look bad right off the bat—it signals a clear and obvious bias. Hopefully, with some luck, this video will go viral enough to expose CBS and their lies.
