Alternative media, you say?

Hold it! Look at what the so-called alternative press are more inclined to highlight. It's smells nothing less than an agenda to struggle along the lines set, while remaining oblivious to the other issues.
They highlight Islamophobia, reckless liberalism, religious pluralism, labeling/linking of Islam to terrorism and the likes.
They rarely highlight the tragedy of the innocent, including women and children in Palestine and Rohingya, for example, but they are very much aware of the plight of the same elsewhere in the Middle East, so long as it can be used to the max as ammo to bash Islam.
They are swift to publish ideas and comments that attack alleged 'rigidity' of the religion - ideas that fortify and confirm accusations of Islam's perceived backwardness.
Considering such stance, it is easy to see where they are coming from...
