MSM Misleading Us Again?

Check out the headline over at CNEWS, Cdn soldier killed in crash. Now earlier in the day the headline was as show in this screen capture...


Notice the title of the story...


Considering the nature of the mission in Afghanistan, this misprinted headline changes the story considerably. Was it just a spelling mistake? To the casual observer who just reads the headline, it may make them less likely to support our role in Afghanistan if they believe our soldiers were killed and injured in an armed conflict and not in a tragic accident. Are the media deliberately misleading us or just incompetent? I guess both are equally plausible.
