Why photos from the Plutonian encounter have not appeared (like originally planned)

On FPSPACE Peter Pesavento posted this comment. 
-------------------------------------------------
Emily Lakdawalla has written about why there has been a severe dearth of imagery being released from the New Horizons spacecraft mission.
It’s not because the imagery hasn’t been coming in from the spacecraft to the ground.
It seems to be due to political decisions.  (When decisions are being made that are not due to technical issues—at least in my view—then they are political ones.)
-------------------------------------------------
I found her article very informative.
If you have been following the Horizons Pluto encounter you may have already read. If you missed it, take a look.

Thanks for looking up with me.
