President Joe Biden’s use of dark red imagery in his Thursday Independence Hall speech may have been subtly altered in CNN’s broadcast.
The establishment media cable news channel appeared to adjust the dark-red lighting to a more pleasant tone.
At one moment in CNN’s broadcast of the speech, the tone of the lighting changed within seconds.
Watch the moment CNN slowly adjusts the camera settings when the blood-red lighting behind Dark Brandon is looking a little too authoritarian.

The red coloration of stripes on the American flag appeared to shift to a lighter, more purple tone.
The president mentioned “MAGA Republicans” ten times, making further references to “MAGA forces” and “MAGA ideology.”
The optics of the speech — delivered outside the building in which American patriots signed the Declaration of Independence — drew criticism for its harsh tone.
Some viewers questioned the use of dark red lighting in the speech, describing the imagery as authoritarian.
Biden appeared in front of two Marines in the speech.
Former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany criticized Biden’s use of a “hellish red background” in the fiery address, according to Fox News.
Everytime I think Biden and crew can’t be dumber they outdo themselves. Seriously who gives a speech warning people about how dangerous Republicans are to Democracy while having a background that looks like the Soviet Union and Hitler had a baby? pic.twitter.com/sukqTswI3C

Contrasting images before and after the apparent lighting change appear to demonstrate a change in CNN’s broadcast settings.
I wasn’t sure, so I capped the screen at the beginning and at the end. Here’s the comparison.
Also, its worth noting that the foreground is the same (so someone didn’t mess with this in post) and the flag changes color (so its not the two lights changing color).

Sped-up video of the segment of Biden’s speech in question appears to demonstrate the color change even more clearly.
CNN hasn’t responded to the claims it changed the coloration of its broadcast of the speech.
