I don't buy that these "kids" we're so dumb that they didn't know. They got in on sports merit for a sport they did not play. How thick do you have to be to believe you were not committing fraud?

(14:30) was the best part. Cenk being very facetious about himself on a serious topic and Ana not giving two fucks. Great!

Damn Ana I appreciate the genuine emotion towards the topic. You don't hear that conviction in many peoples voices

8:40 ana was stone cold serious, did not laugh at cenk's jokes at all 😀

Shame on aunt Becky
Targeted prosecution not saying it is right but I also want Congress corruption prosecuted
Just one further point to my comment below. As was said in the video, allowing this gross nepotism and corruption, for that is what it really is, blocks eminently more intelligent and hard working students from poorer or less privileged backgrounds from studying in these elite universities. I read once that it is like giving your nephew or niece the main prize in a competition just because you are related, fully knowing that the boy or girl from down the road were much better. It is an injustice and should be prosecuted, if any laws are broken. 😞😞😞
I don't suppose this is exactly new, and not just in the USA either. I always thought it fishy that students studying in Oxford and Cambridge in England often came from upper class, rich families. As it is that these students in most cases had gone to so-called "Public Schools", which in typically British logic, are private, and the majority of these ex private school, elite university students are immediately hoisted into the civil service, I.e. governments, it is no wonder that such fiascos happen in the UK as we are seeing today with the Brexit idiocy. It is because the majority of these elitist kids are complete morons who have had their education and careers bought for them by Daddy and Mummy. 😵😵😵
Where are the mugshots?
bonnie duncan
remember the lady who got 10+ years in jail for using the address of a family member to get her kids into a better elementary school?? blind justice?? yeah right.
Self-righteous Judgemental white dude.
Is this A sign that white privilege is almost over??? Or just A smoke screen chess move to cover up white-supremacist/white privilege scamming worldwide???

Dr Dre donated 70 million to USC and his daughter just got in

Meanwhile we call it "lobbying" in the federal government, except it affects millions of people on a grand scale, and not just a 1 kid.

What a dumbass calling the professors the deans.

Poor people :😵😵😵😵😵😵😵

Rich people :🤫🤫🤫🤫🤫🤫🤫
I don’t see the big deal—can’t the girls now simply “identify” as people who did nothing wrong and ignore any actual facts?
Anabella C
Cenk.. I love how you have this “them and you” attitude about rich people. As if people are oblivious to the fact that your a rich people lmao.
Fixer Upper
Dumb poor Republicans just keep telling thier kids to just go be welders. Idiots. The rich kids have "jobs" in Fiji.
Lori Loughlin and her husband’s net worth combined is $88 million dollars. That’s why they were able to give $500 thousand dollars to get their daughters into to USC. When the Atlanta Public School scandal occurred several years back, some of those teachers went to jail. I think whoever is involved in this scandal should go to jail as well. I wish they would take away the legacy status. The wealthy people already have a leg up on education. It’s awful!

Actress Lori Loughlin taken into custody in 'Varsity Blues' college admission scam

Actress Lori Loughlin was taken into custody by the FBI Wednesday in Los Angeles after she, fellow movie star Felicity Huffman and 48 others were charged in a $25 million college admissions scam that has prompted repercussions from Hollywood to the boardrooms of major companies.

A former cast member on the ABC sitcom "Full House," Loughlin and Oscar-nominated actress Huffman, 56, are among 33 parents charged with conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud in the nationwide scam to get their children into elite colleges, including Yale, Stanford, Georgetown and the University of Southern California.

The feds dubbed the investigation "Operation Varsity Blues" and said it was triggered by an unrelated investigation by FBI agents in Boston.
