Last Week Tonight with John Oliver: Boeing
March 4, 2024 10:08 PM - Season 11, Episode 3 - Subscribe

This week.... Biden "hopes" for a cease fire in Gaza. The Supreme Court says they will take up Donald Trump's claim of absolute immunity while in office. And Now: Newscasters React to a Seasonal Phenomenon (iguanas falling out of trees). Main Story: The problems with aircraft manufacturer Boeing, which has fallen from grace in recent decades, after their merger with McDonnell Douglas brought with it a focus on using stock buybacks to juice their shares at the cost of all else, paid for by cutting corners on safety. LWT presents a more honest ad for Boeing at the end of the episode.

The main story of week's episode has appeared on Youtube. If they showed the whole episode on Thursday I wouldn't mind the delay so much, but no, it's still only the main story.
