Boeing is in the middle of a safety-related PR nightmare. Can it recover?

Boeing is in the middle of a public relations nightmare. The world’s largest commercial aircraft manufacturer is being investigated by the Department of Justice in response to two deadly crashes involving its 737 Max jets less than six months apart. Shortly after the second crash, which occurred on March 10 and involved an Ethiopian Airlines jet headed from Addis Ababa to Nairobi, Kenya, regulators in China, the European Union, and the US grounded all Boeing 737 Max jets. The initial panic over the safety of Boeing’s jets has died down, but the investigations into what went wrong on the …

How the Jussie Smollett case became part of a larger controversy around believing survivors

Since the #MeToo movement gained widespread public attention in 2017, the call to “believe women” has become a core part of the fight against sexual harassment and assault.

That phrase and a broader version, “believe survivors,” are reactions to a long history in which women and others who reported sexual misconduct were dismissed, smeared, shamed, or ignored. The call to believe survivors “is a recognition that we live in a society with a pervasive rape culture, in which marginalized communities are more likely to be harmed than folks who are in the majority,” said Preston Mitchum, a law professor …

The Trump administration wants all of Obamacare overturned by the courts

The Trump administration wants the federal courts to overturn the Affordable Care Act in its entirety, an escalation of its legal assault against the health care law.

The Justice Department said in a brief filed on Monday that the administration supports a recent district court decision that invalidated all of Obamacare. So it is now the official position of President Trump’s administration that all of the ACA — the private insurance markets that cover 15 million Americans, the Medicaid expansion that covers another 15 million, and the protections for people with preexisting conditions and other regulations — should …

A congressional aide tells me that the House will hold a hearing on the issue on April 2. The hearing is meant to explore the scope of the problem and what types of policy solutions would be best to fix it.

The hearing will be convened by a subcommittee of Education and Labor, which has jurisdiction over some of the key laws that regulate surprise medical bills.

As far as I can tell, this …

6 unanswered questions from William Barr’s summary of the Mueller report

Special counsel Robert Mueller did not find that the Trump campaign “conspired or coordinated” with the Russian government to meddle in the 2016 elections, according to Attorney General William Barr’s summary to Congress delivered Sunday.

Barr’s four-page letter outlines the “principal conclusions” of the nearly two-year special counsel probe, reiterating that the Russian government sought to interfere in US politics but that the investigation did not establish that Trump associates aided them in their efforts.

His summary also took up the other major element of Mueller’s investigation: whether President Donald Trump obstructed justice. Here, Barr cites language from Mueller’s report, …

Two Parkland school shooting survivors have died

Two Parkland school shooting survivors have died by suicide over the last week — a tragic reminder of the lingering pain and trauma brought by gun violence.

Sydney Aiello, a 19-year-old recent graduate of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, took her life last weekend. On Sunday, police confirmed that a second survivor, a current student, is also now dead in an apparent suicide.

The pair of tragedies comes just over one year after a gunman opened fire in the Florida high school, killing 14 students and three teachers. The shooting marked a turning point in the debate …
