Israel weilds a lot of influence over the American media. Because some networks and media outlets are so afraid of getting into a spat with Israel, they barely mention Israel at all. Any mention of Israel in the American media, if it is not completely supportive and approving of Israel's actions, is considered hostile by Israel and will prompt a reaction from them. It is nice to see ABC buck the trend. It should be mentioned that, in Israel, there is a military censor on all media. This is not a feature found in legitimate democracies. A free and independent press is supposed to act as a watchdog on governments and is vital to any democracy.
