“Hollywood actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman are among 50 people charged in a $25 million college entrance exam cheating scheme, according to court documents unsealed in Boston on Tuesday.

The alleged scam focused on getting students admitted to elite universities as recruited athletes, regardless of their athletic abilities, and helping potential students cheat on their college exams, according to the indictment.”

    She's sounds like a entitled kid. She needs to work for a living like the rest of us instead of flaunting her privilege…

    This is the nouveau riche version of notorious “legacy admissions” that the dimwitted offspring of wealthy families have depended upon forever (see Bush, George W., Trump, Allof’em, and Kushner, Jared). Spoiled brats and the parents who spoil them. I never want to hear another word about Affirmative Action for minorities and poor kids. The rich are the real beneficiaries of inequitable admissions programs.

    Definitely college material

    Like Totally

    We need to expand the conversation as to why college has gone up 500% in the last 20 years. No school, regardless of status, is worth 50,000 year. That's insane. Both democrats and republicans have contributed to the high costs of universities by funding federal loans which pay for these exhorbant costs. The federal government should be questioning why costs have skyrocketed and negotiate prices.. Under Obama it was about financing of loans but WE DON'T NEED BETTER FINANCING OF SCHOOL LOANS , PRICES NEED TO COME DOWN!!! it seems both parties are dialing for the same corporate dollars, especially the banks that finance these loans.

    Sad thing is alot or people didn't get a scholarship that should have. I hope they go to prison

  6. P Dales March 15, 2019 at 12:47 pm

    I blame these ivy league schools who have such extreme low rate of acceptance and have created an atmosphere of status which parents are willing to go very far, illegal activity in order to get their kids in. These schools are so overrated!!!! I remind parents that CEOs of Fortune 500 companies mostly come from state universities, not the so-called 'best' private campuses,” David Marcus, a Pulitzer Prize-winning education writer. STEVE JOBS, BILL GATES NEVER FINISHED COLLEGE.

    The only reason the FBI investigated this is because the colleges were getting cut out of the action by not getting millions in donations. This is no different than the bag men stealing from the Don. If you want to get your kid in you have to do it the old fashioned way. Build a new wing.

    Her voice sounds like every guys ex-girlfriend. "You told me you loved me and you-"

    Hollywood hates trump for being elitist… yet… here they are being elitist.

  10. Juan Jose Mondragon March 15, 2019 at 12:47 pm

    The government make traps for nonwhite,nonamerican people and they trapping their own, ha.

  11. bigdaddyevil666 March 15, 2019 at 12:47 pm

    So donate a building or a ton of money to a school to help get your kid in is still okay. But just paying off a few select people is totally evil and worthy of sitting in prison next to actual criminals??? Besides the IRS, who is the victim here?

  12. Emily Fisher March 15, 2019 at 12:47 pm

    Some how this will lead back to the Trumps… Like how Donald Trump and his children got into there college and graduated… If they charge these parents, then they'd have to charge Trump… I'm just guessing, could be wrong, but for some reason I feel like they found this out investigating Trump and how kids. They found this out and well if these parents or kids get in trouble then only right if Trump or his kids do if they are guilty of similar actions. They may not, but with it getting so much news attention, feel like it's gonna lead back to Trump… Hopefully I'm wrong…

    We live in effectively a near-oligarchy

  14. Eloise52 March 15, 2019 at 12:47 pm

    NO! the children of these parents should also be punished. She's going to Fiji for work? As model or a hooker? A court should mandate that the kids of these parents spend a year in Detroit or Flint or Chicago or Fergus learning how poor kids work their assess off to try and get into a decent school. And the parents, especially those Hollywood bitches, should pay full tuition for hard working hard studying students right through grad school.

    Notice the media – including TYT – just fix the camera on the women, instead of their parents, or the MEN who solicited and received and bought yachts with the bribery?

  16. Wassup Yo America March 15, 2019 at 12:47 pm

    So when will this progressive left channel deal with Intercept Greenwald's $500K salary issue? That's more than President Obama's salary!

  17. Pennywise March 15, 2019 at 12:47 pm

    Why Aunt Becky, Why.

  18. Human Majority March 15, 2019 at 12:47 pm

    The problem is not just unqualified rich white mediocre crooks like Jared and Ivanka killing the American dream. The problem is also myopic underdogs allowing their justified anger to blind them, and threw over-qualified rich white justice advocate heroes like Rachel Maddow and Chelsea Clinton under the "corrupt establishment trash" bus. The American left are too easily manipulated into self-sabotage and even aiding the enemy. Classic case, the still-unrepentant Jill Stein.

    Cenk is not funny

  20. Indie Sindie March 15, 2019 at 12:47 pm

    It's no wonder why they call it University of Spoiled Children. I would be shocked if any of these people do time.

  21. Onan Merefat March 15, 2019 at 12:47 pm

    Who's surprised? Hasn't this been the US way with their Ivy League Universities all along? If you find that unfair, implement a free university / college system for all like many other developed countries.
    Who on the other side is in trouble for taking the "bribe"?

  22. David Browne March 15, 2019 at 12:47 pm

    First sign your snooty parents are NOT as rich as they act like they are …
    Why wouldn’t they just ‘donate a building’ like Rodney did in ‘Back to School’ ?
    Not rich enough Lori ?
    Double slap in your pampered pretty face babe. It’s USC you dumb bimbo

  23. Sakura11101 March 15, 2019 at 12:47 pm

    My ex got into USC film school (number 1 film school in the US) entirely on merit, took 7 AP courses and scored a 2100 on the old SAT, and still had to turn it down because of money. The struggle doesn't end even when you have the merit. It's all cash.

    Ana sitting back like "I work with children."

    informant = snitch

  26. Mercedes Azurdia March 15, 2019 at 12:47 pm

    What kind of monsters these parents are creating! !! Air head kids that think they are entitled to everything. .selfish people that think that nothing can harm them, because money and conections! ?!!? Those are really bad parents really bad parents educating and creating future useless human beings

  27. Cynthia O'Donnell March 15, 2019 at 12:47 pm

    While their getting Jared kushner' s transcripts they can go ahead & grab Obama's transcripts. And, at least the people at Harvard remember jared, no one even classmates know the other.

  28. Sonia L March 15, 2019 at 12:47 pm

    again with the black thing move to the ghetto maybe you will learn something not maney college graduates there

  29. Sonia L March 15, 2019 at 12:47 pm

    how maney people you think bought diplomas

  30. Donnie Orangutan March 15, 2019 at 12:47 pm

    Dear Asians these people are the real reason why you didn’t get into Harvard

  31. Jeffrey Morton March 15, 2019 at 12:47 pm

    This has been going on for so long, I'm surprised anyone bothered to notice, let alone arrest anybody… Rich narcissistic white trash with a sociopathic sense of entitlement has been with us ever since Hector was a pup. This is yet another reason why the whole American education system (every school from Kindergarten to Universities) should be nationalized, funded, and managed with the purpose of actually educating all of our young people.

    I wonder how much Freddie boy paid for Donny boy's diploma
