Dear Friend,

This year Democracy Now! is celebrating our 25th anniversary—that's 25 years of bringing you fearless, independent reporting. Since our very first broadcast in 1996, Democracy Now! has refused to take government or corporate funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. But that means we rely on you, our audience, for support. Please donate today in honor of our 25th anniversary and help us stay on air for another 25 years. We can't do our work without you. Right now, a generous donor will even TRIPLE your gift, which means it’ll go three times as far! This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to make a donation, please do so today. Thank you and remember, wearing a mask is an act of love.
-Amy Goodman

Boeing Ousts a Top Executive over Fatal Plane Crashes

HeadlineOct 23, 2019

Boeing has ousted one of its top executives, marking the first high-level management change since the fatal crashes of two 737 MAX jets that combined killed 346 people. The ousted executive, Kevin McAllister, had led Boeing’s commercial airplanes division. The plane crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia have provoked global outrage and sparked questions about the Trump administration’s close ties to Boeing. On Monday, Boeing announced it will begin paying out $50 million in financial assistance to the families of the victims of the two crashes.
Earlier this month, Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg lost his additional title as chairman of the board.
