The Distillery: DJs blame game

Jotters apportion responsibility for David Jones' troubles, while one wrangles with Telstra’s fixed-line pain.

David Jones boss Paul Zahra took over from predecessor Mark McInnes, who was lauded at the time, in controversial circumstances. Three years later Zahra is still having a hard time with the legacy of McInnes, but it’s got nothing to do with the departure.

Also in this morning’s edition of The Distillery, Telstra’s sackings are less about getting costs down and more about making sure it’s expenditure is going towards businesses that are growing and will continue to grow.
