CBS Denies Homocons’ Hilarious Claim That They Tweaked The Color To Make Steve Bannon Look Sinister

L to the O to the L. Via Mediaite:

In a now widespread article — titled “Photographer Explains How CBS Uses Color Adjustments To Make Steve Bannon ‘Look Bad’ On 60 Minutes” — the fringe conservative site Gateway Pundit promoted the idea that CBS “used color adjustments to make the Breitbart News boss ‘look bad’ on television.” This article was then picked up and spread by right-wing media giant The Drudge Report.

Kevin Tedesco, an executive director for communications at CBS News, shot down the theory by telling Abrams Media‘s Rachel Stockman that this notion is “nonsense.” Who was Gateway Pundit’s source for such an outrageous claim? That would be photographer Peter Duke, whose portfolio includes work for former Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos, Trump fanboy Scott Adams, and conservative pundit James O’Keefe — demonstrating that his half-baked claim against CBS may have other motivations aside from the truth.

    Well, now that you mention it, he could use some blush. Lipstick. Eyeliner. Eyeshadow. Cover. Pancake. More cover. More blush. A skin transplant. A new liver…

  • That_Looks_Delicious

    I thought doughy white was their favorite color over at Breitbart. I was under the impression that was the whole point of Breitbart.

    • jerry

      While I didn’t watch the show, from all the pics today I’ve been wondering what magic the makeup people did to make him look that good (compared to usual).

      • Steverino

        Enough pancake makeup to cover up the stubble, that’s for sure.

        • Snarkaholic

          There was actually a product called Lazy-Shave. Richard Nixon actually used that crap before his televised debate with JFK!

    They may have tweaked the color to try to make him look Human . I still believe a Mortician did his make up.

    • Steverino

      It obviously was a vast undertaking.

      I think that would be very fast, actually. You’d probably never even know what happened. But definitely a closed casket situation if they could find anything at all.

        Not quick enough.

  • Beagle

    Bannon doesn’t need any help to look bad.

  • greenmanTN
  • Jefe5084

    NO. That is BS. He looks bad in all light, all by himself. The inner evil just shows through no matter how much makeup he trowels on or which coloring agent they add.

    • Snarkaholic

      You don’t even need to look at his face to tell that his health is atrocious…just take one glance at his hair.

    Truth Deniers will of course deny the true fact that evil will ooze out of a person from within. So the exterior of Donnie tRump and Steve Bannon, among so, so many other assbags, has nothing to do with their evil ways but is a consequence of liberals and their Illuminati plans to take over the world. Oh, and something something Jewish, because, Soros and shit.

          See, I was going to suggest that, but then I realized that it would put certain images of Bannon, ass, cum, and sucking into people’s heads.

    • clay

      They were going for “comforting warmth”.
      They ended up with “mortuary pink”.
      Homocons wanted “pasty oatmeal”.

      • Steverino

        If only crayolas had those names as colors.

  • shellback

    If anything, I would have guessed they used a smoothing filter, as in paint programs, to smooth out the corpse-like, deteriorated skin. That’s exactly how a smoothing filter looks.

  • MT YVR

    The lighting?

    Direct sunlight. Now we know why he looked bad.

            ha! for him it’s probably empty calories.

        • Stogiebear

          One more thing human civilisation can be thankful for.

  • I work in the theater enough to know the amazing things that highly skilled professionals can do with make-up and lighting, but there’s a limit even for those at the top of their field. Also, Bannon’s problem is the shit he says, not what he looks like.

    • billbear1961

      It’s a gift, to defenders of the Republic, that he looks like he does.

      If democracy survives on this planet so that historians will be able to document the truth, posterity will marvel at how a once-great nation allowed itself to be DESTROYED by such OBVIOUS and not very talented GANGSTERS.

      They will have to admit they succeeded only because the institutions of the late American republic had been totally compromised by GREED, by the money of the gangster oligarchs, and that the vast majority of the public had lost their self-respect and will TO FIGHT!!

            But I thought it was apt, Tom.

            This is what’s coming out of Trump’s mouth, what the right–what the GOP–is unleashing on us, and nothing forceful–on an impressive scale–is being done to STOP them.

            We cannot rely on the corporate media, and we are getting no determined, meaningful leadership from the Democratic party.

            Everyone is foolishly waiting for MUELLER to save this country; well, I believe we should be showing him and the entire Establishment, through massive and daily protests, that we OBJECT to Trump’s unending ASSAULT on the RULE OF LAW!!

    Yeah, that they are even trying shows they have lost on this one. CBS used ‘pancake’ makeup to try and salvage Bannon’s appearance. He just looks that bad.

    Steve, no matter how good you think you look, don’t fight the makeup lady. She knows.

    at least they acknowledge that he looks like shit.

    The picture that Joe posted had Bannon looking pretty good, IMO. I thought CBS did an impressive job putting lipstick on that pig.

      And because the mirrors keep breaking!

  • Lars Littlefield

    I watched the interview and all I could focus on was why Bannon doesn’t have those skin growths (warts) burned off the upper-left side of his face. At the very least he could insist upon being photographed from his right side. It gives me the fuckin’ creeps.

    • Johnny Wyeknot

      Those are venereal warts because that’s a dickhead you’re looking at. (At which you are looking.)

    You mean like the GOP actually did?

    The GOP may have intentionally darkened President Obama’s skin in ads during the 2008 presidential campaign in order to capitalize on racial biases, the Washington Post reports. According to a study published Dec. 17 in Public Opinion Quarterly, 86% of attack ads attempting to link Obama to criminal activity made his skin look much darker than it naturally appears.

    look bad! this is really the best he’s looked. he does nothing to take care of the terrible rosacea he has, not to mention the spots that look pre-cancerous! I thought they did the usual on-camera makeup they usually do for the cameras. does he know what a dermatologist is?

    Steve Bannon is sinister and it’s probably alcohol that has “tweaked the color” of his face.

  • Vira

    Having watched the (w)hole interview now, I was struck by how high (and unimpressive) his speaking voice was for a man his age (and drinking history).

    Candidly, he sounded even more unstable than I imagined he’d be– talking fast, talking over the interviewer, using empty fillers as a verbal tic (..okay?….okay?).

    More than anything else, he reminded me of my ex-husband when caught with 500kg of meth, 250 of which were up his ass.

    Yes, Steve Bannon looks, sounds and behaves like a meth addict craving a hit.

    And oh, sweet jesus, how I’d love to hit him.
