How come the assembled picture of the so called black hole does not show a burp?

The artists' conceptions show the equivalent of burps in the ACCRETION discs OF the black hole. The images of accretion discs around black holes do NOT.

Because a "burp" is something that comes out.
Nothing ever comes out of a black hole.

Because the phenomenon typically referred to as a "burp" is a function of the accretion disc, and exists well outside the event horizon. The new picture shows the actual even horizon itself.
They had to zoom IN by a factor of several hundred from showing the accretion disc in order to produce this picture. Which is why it was so hard to do, and had never been done before

How can a picture show a burp? I thought that burps were sounds?
