Default Jupiter's Stormy Great Red Spot is Shrinking

"I just happened to look at an old picture and said to myself, 'That looks like a breakfast sausage.' It's very long. I mean, if you look at one of those pictures back from then and a picture now, you think, 'My God, this thing is going on a diet," Orton said.

Seriously, go back and check for distortion in the printing of the images. Someone may have morphed an image.

Observations from my 'scope don't bear out what you are saying, and of course there is the absence of commentary from the professional astronomical circles.

And CNN is hardly a source worth quoting on just about ... anything. As bad as FoxNews.
