Typically Israel bars all media from IDF activity. The prefer to operate under cover of media blackouts. In this case, calling for a media blackout was a little too obvious. The usual deterrent used against "uncontrolled" media is to shoot a couple of them and let the rest take notice. I am sure that all the various media personnel on the flotilla know that they take their lives in their hands when they annoy Israel.
