Have you notice that "from" is disappearing in certain instances?

Do you know what this is about? Does it seem strange? I’ve been noticing this in the news and media. Here’s an example headline:

The sudden dawn of the deinfluencer: can online superstars stop us shopping?

Don’t you mean “stop us from shopping”?

Is this an AP Style thing?

The point to notice is it’s a headline. It needs to be extra terse. More than likely, it has to fit into a certain space, so it becomes necessary to delete words.

Yes, it is supposed to have “from” in there. Headlines are not generally grammatically perfect.
