You are a diehard Palace fan looking for detailed and specific news. However Sky and the nationals have a 'national' agenda, and 'national' narratives.

The only Palace player who attracts national interest is Zaha, so there will be a question on him but apart from that questions are designed to seek answers not for die hard palace fans but for national stories.

If the story of the day a world record transfer fee, then every prem manager will be asked about it. That way Sky can do a 'national' story on the world record transfer fee, cut to a quote from Hodgson, then Moyes, then Klopp and then go to Mourinho who answered in a different way...

It is how the national media works. You would however expect the local media or Palace specific media (5 year plan for example, holmesdale radio) to ask questions specific to the team, however I am not sure they are at the table. Don't forget this press conferences are edited up for global consumption.

Hope this helps by way of explanantion, sorry if the situation doesn't end your frustration
