“We are working to fix a bug that is causing some images in Top Stories on Google Search results not to render properly. Our apologies — we hope to have this cleared up quickly!”

Here’s an example of what the bug looks like in action. Instead of displaying an image the thumbnail is either solid color or simply blank.

Expect another update from Sullivan as soon as the issue is resolved.
