Investigation shows that there are several indications that the NASA is tampering with the colors, and changes them from an Earth-like environment into a red inhospitable environment. But it seems that the young scientists at Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) are not convenient with this.
At the press conference last saturday, the JPL-scientists showed the latest picture of the Martian landscape. It showed a salmon-coloured desert with a blue sky. It seems that they did it on purpose, since previous pictures were all extremely red.

YAY my first comment thingy, proudest day of my life, yeh I can see your point, but why didn't NASA do what the JPS team did, if only to see it in greater detail?

NASA does not deny they alter the colors just depends on which camera is taking the picture.
To save bandwidth, they do not send full color pictures. They then add colors or alter them when presenting them to the public.
