Language shift in mainstream media? #flotilla

Check out this headline in an Associated Press article

Israel ships STALK pro-Palestinian aid flotilla

And the lede is a bit more accurate than how they are usually crafted:

“”Israeli warships stalked a flotilla carrying hundreds of pro-Palestinian activists, including a Nobel laureate and a Holocaust survivor heading for the Gaza Strip on Monday, edging closer to a naval showdown on the high seas.”

Is it possible the media is finally getting the message? Has Israel finally, finally backed itself into a corner, where no matter how its MisInformation Ministers try to spin it, it will all backfire?

Let’s hope so.
