Media attention

If you care to look at the BBC World website or the Guardian equivalent, you will find - appropriately enough - any amount of articles on the Israel/Palestine crisis.  But the Syrian civil war and the Iraqi conflict appear to have dropped off the map.

Is it war fatigue concerning the apparently endless strife in the latter benighted countries?  Or are the media simply incapable of covering more than one Middle East crisis at a time?
