No pics on Drudge right now...?
http://drudgereport.com ^

Drudge sends messages using the imagery he displays amongst the links... but right now there are no images. Seem odd to anyone? There must be images coming in from everywhere with the way things are escalating in the middle east.

He went with that strange morph into black & white only photographs for several days a few months back , which I found odd. Still not sure what he was getting at with that...

It’s ok. Drudgereport is irrelevant for any meaningful, objective news stories.

You seem to have time on your hands.

Drudge will post pictures when he has pictures he wants to post. He may be working on it now. The page changes frequently, unless it doesn’t.

Looks like he was in a transition for a few moments.

I see one up now, in addition to the ads:

I think you’re right. I looked when I first read the title and now it is different. Funny thing is - that his site refreshes often, yet I have refreshed myself and got a completely different scene before.

Lol, not blaming you at all. My computer has been acting up and I came across threads that had huge white areas where the graphics hadn’t ‘opened up’ yet!! I was wondering about that earlier today!

And I go there 10 or more times a day, instant headlines of what’s happening on one full page shot.

Unless there is a breaking news story, Drudge usually takes the weekend off.

Most of the images on his site have shown in my browser (FF v12.0) as broken links for several days. Don’t know why. Don’t really care.

Most of the time, Drudge uses stock photography of people he’s talking about. The photographs are often, if not always not in context with the storyline — The picture of Obama given for a story done today could be a picture from 8 months back.

In otherwods, the picture is meant to convey a feeling thematic to the story line. It is manipulative and visual propaganda so it’a a good thing if Drudge is getting away from this.

I notice Townhall is starting to do this now ... printing non contextual photos based on the emotional direction the story tries to take us.
