I wondered that myself. They have been since yesterday.
The hour has already come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. Romans 13:11

And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved. Matthew 10:22

Wake up, oh sleeper, and rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you

I don't know why, but I did notice it right away as it is my favorite site to checkout; that and of course GLP. There has to be a meaning behind it, Matt Drudge has to be doing this for a reason!

Maybe he is saying that the news has gone to strictly black and white, with no gray area?
Is it a racial thing? I am sure someone will turn it in to that...
Is he making a statement about time... the past or possibly our neglectful way of not learning from it?
Maybe he is just messing with us!?!
Any other theories?

Easy. Saves on bandwidth.

After optimization, black and white (or optimized "grayscale") pictures only take about 40% bandwith as does a color image. Since the design is already minimal, this means that Drudge can essentially triple the bandwidth efficiency (3 page views for the price of one original page view).

No brainer for me, and frankly, it adds to the "film noir" style of even more.

Fox News coverage-


What's Drudge Doing?

Some readers of Drudgereport.com were surprised this week to find that all of the images on the popular website had been converted to black and white, prompting speculation as to the reasoning behind the decision.

Speculation on several web forums has included the theory that perhaps the black and white theme is a metaphor for political relations in this country, where there are two extremes with no middle ground.
Others suggest he may simply be returning to the old style of newspapers in simple black and white print.
FoxNews.com reached out to Drudge for comment on the changes, but messages were not immediately returned.

There is no more contrast or color in our news today, its black and white. Propaganda! Either you are left or right depending whether or not you still believe in the left or right paradigm.

Main stream journalism is dead and controlled and I believe has reached a pinnacle point that Matt has drawn in the sand and now Matt has symbolized his contempt within his publication.

Interesting, but can't you optimize a 2 color gif to the same file size?
