Media and the Middle East

Congratulations for the eye-opening Opinion page article "Flood of Cliches," Aug. 16. The author succinctly diagnosed for us the attitudes of the American media vis-a-vis the Middle East. By identifying and clarifying certain media buzzwords such as "secular," "pro-Western," and "fundamentalism," the author has ably succeeded in doing the spadework for the rest of us. Our duty now is to be cognizant of the many inconsistencies rampant in the American media. Omar Al-Taher, Miami
