Not true. LCD flat panels are neutral devices, that have no
intrinsic color temperature. It is the backlight that determines
color temperature. Tri-color LED backlights can improve color gamut
to better-than-NTSC, whereas the lower CRI of many fluorescent tubes
can limit that gamut.
Obviously, one could hack a display and replace the backlight with,
say, Kinoflos with a high (90+) CRI and a chosen color temperature --
though that won't happen to consumer TVs.
Out there, it's as much of a mess as it ever was!
