I'm reviewing flags, and I see this:

flagged post

It looks like mild lunacy, and I'd probably flag as low quality and move on. However, looking at the actual answer shows that it's not quite as mad as it seemed:

It looks like a potentially useful answer from a new user who could fix up the post.

With the Moderator Dashboard design changes, rolled out in 2019, you can expand the flagged post and see any images or YouTube videos linked in-line.

Expanding the flag results in the following view:

I can also confirm that images work in much the same manner.
