Thursday night’s “soul of America” speech will go down in history, no doubt, but not for the reason that Joe Biden would like it to.
The entire speech was a mess: From the irresponsibility of the President’s words to he optics of his Hellish facade.
CNN even seemed to take umbrage with the set design, even going so far as to adjust the colors of the set to make it appear less Hellacious.
While networks like CNN, MSNBC, CBS and C-SPAN carrying the speech all originally appeared consistent, CNN noticeably altered the color of the background from red to pink in real-time.
Eagle-eyed cable news watchers pounced on the shift. The story was reported in Mediaite, which put the CNN footage up side-by-side against other networks, showing that the CNN switch was not a technical problem that hit all networks.Trending:
“CNN appears to have tweaked the video of Biden’s speech from demonic red to Pepto-Bismol pink. Very helpful, as we needed a lot of Pepto-Bismol to get through this!,” said former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee.
A CNN spokesperon told journalists that a “glitch” was responsible for the issue.
