WATCH: Photographer Explains How 60 Minutes Made Steve Bannon Look Like “Bleary Eyed Drunk”

Content originally published at

After Steve Bannon’s widely viewed interview with Charlie Rose on 60 Minutes Sunday night, professional photographer Peter Duke uploaded a video to YouTube explaining how CBS may have used color adjustments to make the former Trump advisor ‘look bad’ in the interview.

In the video’s description, Duke writes “It seems like 60 minutes would like you to listen less and look more at Steve Bannon. By subtly tweaking the color of the video, they make him look like a bleary-eyed drunk. I show you how they did it.”

Duke goes on to explain how CBS adjusted shots of Bannon to make his eyes and lips red by increasing saturation levels. One clue that photographic trickery was afoot is the difference in color between Bannon’s orange blinds when comparing shots of Charlie Rose and Bannon. Rose’s shots were noticeably ‘cooler,’ to make the host’s make-up more subtle.


CBS Responds

In response to Duke’s video, a representative for CBS curtly told “It’s nonsense.”

Duke, in response to CBS’s ‘Nonsense’ comment, told Gateway Pundit’s Josh Caplan that “All professional video production uses color correction in the editorial process. Minor tweaks can be done in all digital video editing tools, but the majors use Avid Media Composer or Davinci Resolve to add the final finish to the work.

In addition to my experience as a photographer and technologist, I spent 5 years of my career working as creative director at a post-house that produced marketing videos, electronic press kits, for every major studio in Hollywood.”

The author of this article wants you to think Mr. Bannon is NOT a red-eyed monster.But he worked for Goldman Sachs and has quite a bit to do with the catholic pizza lovers also. So don't birds of a feather flock together?

I was paying attention to Bannon's words & Rose's brow-beating holier-than-thou citation of a bishop of a church with lots of problems. Decision: Bannon 29, Rose & CBS 0    tko.

Considering Rose's attacks and interruptions, I thought Bannon did a much better job in the interview than I expected.  I have more respect for Bannon now, he tells the truth.

So what is the point of an "interview" with the hostiles anyway?

Nobody watching Rose is going to change their minds.

STEVE, you know we need a National Freedom Party. People are ready to flock to it.

Lead man, lead. Don't waste time with the rest. Crush the Precinct Process coast to coast.

How is Bannon going to lead a National Freedom Party? He won't ever talk about who you have to get free from. Even while addressing a seminar at the Vatican some years ago, he kept affirming his commitment to something he calls Judeo-Christian civilization. And he's never let up. It's like announcing, "Behold, the Lord has arisen, and he's stewing for eternity in boiling shit!"

I think his most interesting comment was something along the line "....after we won the election.....we had to staff the government......" suggesting they were not prepared to do so, or, like minded talent didn't exist to fill the cabinet and other positions. If that's the case the Deep State is much more formidable than they estimated. I like Bannon and what he says and stands for.

The globalists (which includes their cheerleaders like CBS and 60 Minutes) are terrified of Steve Bannon. They are truly scared that he might run or worse, enable someone else to run successfully, just like he did Donald Trump. They know he knows how to do it and he has a following that is growing day by day.

So are you saying Bannon is NOT a bleary-eyed drunk?!Everyone knows he's a bleary-eyed drunk, who seriouslyneeds some gym time. Andrew Breitbart was a bleary-eyed drunk, and look what happened to him. Work out!Has Bannon ever gotten any legislation passed? All he'sdone is make Trump look like the lying Bozo he truly is.Bannon needs a 12-step program, or he'll be Rodham II.He'll start going goo-goo gah-gah when balloons drop.Steve, boy. You're out. Jared won, you lost. Get over it!Did Che give interviews with Charlie Rose? No, he wentoff with the common people and lived with them intheir resistance to Deep State. Did Castro hang aroundin the office of Batista and pretend to be his advisor? No, he went off with the common people and lived withthem in their resistance to Deep State. Did Mao hang out with the Emperor and pretend to speak for him?No, he went off with the common people and lived withthem in their resistance to Deep State.  If Steve wantsto be a god-damn Populist, he has to lay off the sauce,and get with the people of Houston or South Florida,and maybe in 2018, he can lead a national insurgency.I don't think he has it in him, but there's still 12-step.

Bannon's a Wall Street scumfuck that is definitely IN THE CLUB.  Bannon made a shit ton of money and in return is now playing a part.  He's an actor, no more, no less.  So what he's got views that seem different than the establishment.  Is he talking about ending the Fed? Is he talking about all wars being banker wars?  Is he exposing Wall Street for the criminal racket that it is?  You fuckers love a hero, but there are no heroes, period.

Bannon's certainly not a hero. Bannon is a reluctant leader, the best kind. Bannon is just a smart average Joe who's fed up with the globalist elitist thinking in this country that's going to destroy us just like the elites destroyed Rome. He's no longer a drone attached to the collective borg and now savors his freedom.He may need gym time and he may even be a drunk though I doubt it because he went straight to the best spokesperson the enemy has that would take him and easily logically outmaneuvered and out reasoned him. He absolutely destroyed Charlie Rose and tore his logic apart limb by limb. That takes a clear mind. His responses were quick, to the point, full of vigor and straight to the heart of the matter. He's not a babbling leftist cuckold like Rose, that's for sure. The difference BETWEEN THE DEVIANT ROSE AND THE STRAIGHT TO THE POINT, CLEAR THINKING SITTING UPRIGHT BANNON WAS VISIBLE, DESPITE THE ATTEMPT TO MAKE HIM LOOK TERRIBLE BY PLACING HIM IN A BAD LIGHT. On the other hand, Bannon is real danger to the elites because he was one himself. The most dangerous enemy is one who was in your ranks of darkness and has seen the light.

My eyes were drawn to these details yesterday while watching the video. It was quite overdone. The extreme closeups showing his facial hair and makeup in hindsight did make him look like a drunk :-)

Charlie Rose on the other hand looks like a rose cheeked clown attempting to hide his true age.

CFR propaganda department at its best.
