ONE STEP FORWARD, NOW BACKWARD WALTZ, has become the standard routine for commercial blogger Crikey.

Having naively endorsed Monday's Four Corners, Crikey now publishes an appraisal that means, in effect, Crikey is so ignorant of the foreign policy debate that nothing it says can be taken seriously.

Crikey's anonymous critic of 4C might be less charitable about Jonathan Holmes's contribution to the jihad if he knew that the version pre-deployed by Frontline, 4C's ideological soul-mate in the US, was so much better.
