Dude, CNN. I know you're always trying to get younger viewers (you'll never get the old ones away from Fox), but maybe you're aiming too low if you think your audience isn't old enough yet to realize that these two background images are from the same location with slightly different color filters.

You do realize that we, your audience, possess the power of object permanence, right? You're not going to start announcing that the President has "been kidnapped" any time he walks off camera, are you?
