In a 9/11 world, why does the mainstream press still understate Islamic-inspired crime?

'Jerusalem bulldozer terror' reportage draws criticism of bias against Israel by the mainstream-media

While the BBC rushes to apologize for televising the saving of more civilian lives from an actual Palestinian atrocity against Jews, why does the media still refuse to apologize for airing Palestinian, 'fabricated- atrocities' which have falsely damned Israel in the world's eye? The media and enduring narrative by Caroline Glick in The Jerusalem Post

..."In this case, as in the case of the lynching eight years ago, the reason the BBC apologized is not because the film's images were too gruesome, but because it strayed from the accepted narratives of the Palestinian war against Israel. To maintain the narratives, "the right editorial balance between the demands of accuracy and the potential impact on the program's audience," is one that engenders the belief that Israel is either morally indistinguishable from the Palestinians, or that Israel is morally inferior to the Palestinians."... "the distorted footage put out by the media made it impossible for Israel to defend itself in the court of public opinion. Like the al-Dura affair, the media's open collusion with the Palestinians in Jenin and Hizbullah in Kafr Kana prolonged false narratives predicated on Israeli aggression which were about to be finally laid to rest."
Ms. Glick asserts, "The media only give us the information (not the truth) they wish us to have."
