SAM SMITH - What do Hillary Clinton and Ralph Nader have in common? The archaic media wants them both out of the race for president. Nader is understandable since these objective journalists can't stand his politics, but Clinton is another matter, one that provides an insight into what might be called the hidden non-partisanship of the press. Which is to say that, even beyond its political bias - which has been long pro-Clinton, there lurks an obsessive lust for identifying with the winner. This has little to do with politics all; rather it is a desire to relate closely with those in power - the presumed source of wisdom, virtue and the verifiable source of social status and good parties.
