Terrorism reporting seen as inconsistent

NY Times:

Trump Claims News Media Seeks to Play Down Terror Attacks

The president’s comments, made in a speech to military personnel, appeared to ignore the vast amount of reporting on violence committed by the Islamic State.
The media did appear to go along with Obama's attempt to downplay domestic terror attacks, from the ridiculous "workplace violence" description of an attack at fort Hood by and Islamic terrorist to other similar attacks.

As someone who follows news of terrorist attacks, I was surprised to learn that there have been 580 convictions since 9-11 for terrorist offenses and of those roughly 380 were by foreign-born terroists.  How many of those made the front page of the NY Times?
