Trevor Noah & Representative Katie Porter Discuss J&J Bankruptcy


The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah discusses the effort by Johnson & Johnson to use the federal bankruptcy system to avoid talc liabilities with Congresswoman Katie Porter (D-CA). “This is fundamentally a problem about preventing corporate abuse,” says Rep. Porter, a former tenured professor in bankruptcy law at the University of California-Irvine. “But this isn’t really a bankruptcy problem,” she says in the seven-minute interview. “It’s a larger problem about how do we make sure that companies that make money are also on the hook for paying for the harm they cause along the way.”
