Default OANN website does not display correctly for me.

Not sure what they did but starting yesterday afternoon all I get when visiting the website is the block image below. Probably a function of interference with the ad block and image blocking software I run due to limited Data allotments but I used to be able to see titles of news stories and read them as well as bring up the discussion area.

If they keep to this new format I will no longer be a viewer of their content. I do not have unlimited data to stream videos and noise. Not a big fan of videos in the first place over reading text.

Most of them are going this route, if you ad block them they will keep you out.

FYI, I have ad block plus and ghostery active and OANN.com comes up fine for me.

Might be my image blocker though if I remove it I get the website with pictures but still no text. Also I run Open SUSE Linux so Firefox and the Add ons are a bit different than those for Windows folks.

Your browser has blocking also and MS defender or your antivirus, etc. like you said and the image blocker would be my guess. I just wanted to give you more info to go on.

But you usually get a pop up saying to whitlelist your blocker.
