What new information led FAA to ground Boeing 737 MAX jets?

Clip: 03/13/2019 | 6m 30s

Boeing’s 737 MAX jetliners are grounded across much of the globe -- including the U.S. Days after other nations banned the plane from flying in their airspace, the FAA, which had as recently as Tuesday night insisted the plane was safe, said new information about Sunday's Ethiopian Airlines crash led it to change course. John Yang reports, and Judy Woodruff talks to Miles O’Brien for analysis.
