Hope this helps!
With the huge growth in mobile traffic and the way voters are consuming content now, it would seem to be an absolute must that these election assets get a mobile-friendly display in the future.
Thanks very much.
Here is the Google News help page, which says that if you don't have a related image (that meets their requirements) they will sometimes help you out by adding one from somewhere else:
"Please keep in mind that in order to show as many different sources to our users as possible, we sometimes pair relevant images with articles from different sources."
So, it doesn't look like much can be done other than to try to have images with all of your main stories.
I had thought that setting an og_image setting would help, but you have that already, so clearly Google News won't use that.
By way of comparison googlebot, yahoo(slurp), and bingbot all seem to account for about 6% of our pageviews.
How are you dealing with the issue?
Can a prompt be added to broadcast that notifies the person broadcasting that there is no image attached and makes them choose to continue.
We have a feature that, when you do not have a related image on the page, will send FB a "default" og_image to use. Most newspapers will use a logo or something similar.
Here is the documentation:
Also, note that these can be set on the URL, so you could theoretically have a different og_image per section.
