  • What a farce, there has always been a back door admissions scheme at many colleges and those who lost out should be more upset the athletics fake or otherwise cost them a spot than a few idle rich kids.

  • Fake Schools

  • This is what leftist do

  • What's the problem they are paying to get their kids in, the money goes towards the university, if their idiot children could not get in on their own, they'll eventually flunk out !!

  • What is the matter with disliking this video i mean tell FBI to investigate these ppl im sure most of these must be those bribing parents checking our whether they were named or not

  • It happens all around the world

  • Everyone have a degree now of days they are worthless!

  • It’s about time. This is an investigation I support and hope the consequences for all those involved are swift and severe 👍🏻.

  • This is America. Nothing new. Everything is conducted on an unleveled playing field. There’s no such thing as fairness with these people.

  • This isn't even a problem in Ghana so im surprised this has been taken so seriously. People using their wealth to buy a future for their children especially in medical school

  • The jail have VIP cells.

  • Education is just another accessory for rich people....sad

  • Stupid and nonathletic white people cheating to get ahead...TOTALLY NORMAL....... NOTHING TO SEE HERE!

  • Do they think their kids are that stupid that they cannot get into college on their own merits?!

  • Greedy pigs. cnn is still a POS

  • I'm so disappointed in actress Lori Loughlin. I watched her in "Full House" and Hallmark Garage Sale Mysteries". What's the matter with these people!!

  • how is this scandal racketeering... seems more like fraud as there was no violence or coercion

  • The swamp is draining. LOL

  • They have been doing this for years. Nothing new. Bush paid to have his papers done and his parents paid to get him through college. This is old news.

  • Hey remove all the rich white kids because if they were black it wouldn’t even be up for discussion what would happen.

  • Let's show our children how to behave - show them that this is the way people behave as adults. Morality and ethics begone.

  • It's depressing. There really isn't anything that is honest anymore and of course money rules.

  • Honestly it is no shock also for the rest of the world to watch this. The FBI manages to catch these schools + rich people's frauds in only 50 cases when the whole system of elite universities is based on this. But good for the FBI! Also don't get how they only focus on the celebrities when all the people arrested are big players in USA's (and the world's) capitalism?!

  • Who else doesn’t care about this story ? 🖐🏾

  • For a "Christian" country there seem to be very few morals.

  • This is like having the money to pay someone to help you get abs but instead you pay someone more to Photoshop???

  • ok so your rich, why not just use the money to pay for exclusive programs that actually make you interesting and athletic? I can't see the down side to that?

  • Praise The Lord that I had enough brains and persistence to excel at my studies without being tempted by any "monkey-business."

  • Let Lori Loughlin Loose

  • SHAMA-LAMA-DING-DONG

  • The best punishment for these families would be a permanent job at Walmart with no chance to move up in the company.

  • How rude!

  • I bet all of the parents who successfully got away with this over the years are like WHEWWWW 😅😅

  • What I am thinking is that she may not be found guilty, so I don't think she should be fired from the companies she works for. It's such a thin line, meaning they may have hired this college coach and when she sent him pictures of her girls were working on some rowboat machines but not really in real rowboats, then the coach may have been the one to put their faces on someone else who were on real rowboats in the water. Just saying........

  • SCUM BAGS ROT IN HELL

  • Trump should be on this list with his track of buying off FORBES and the other financial reporting entities. wouldnt be surprised to find out he and his dad could be part of this scheme..its so down Trumps ally to have been involved in this. the only the feds got involved is because of the FED financial aid program that colleges offer. its called Title IV funding. the caveat is that the more graduates able to find employment within their field of study within 6 mos of graduation the more Title IV funding the college receives. so logically if famous people are enrolled, it draws more people to enrollment to edge the college's goal of getting more Title IV funding and of course theres the problem of students who earned their way by way of meeting all enrollment requirement being pushed out by those looking for the short cuts. The take away is this: colleges have turned to a business model rather than an educational institution. thats to be blamed on the Gov as well because of their policies in awarding funding to colleges. this should be a starting point for the Fed Gov to overhaul its processes regarding college funding programs. its really not that complex of a scheme.

  • She changed her mind on the second daughter because the second daughter is not a moron like her parents and didn’t need any help to “get into” the liberal indoctrination centers.

  • My kid is a real moron. How much is it gonna cost me to get this POS out of my house?

  • And this is how the rich stay rich folks!

  • I’m not complaining, but like why now?

  • I would really like to know the other parents that were part of this than just the 2 celebrities. They act like they were the only 2.

  • This has been for decades and it’s no secret. Why are people so surprised?! I’m ONLY surprised because it wasn’t swept under the rug! THANK YOU for prosecuting. Make an example and arrest the students and coaches also! They KNEW what was going on! Look at how many rich kids go to elite schools they obviously aren’t qualified for...

  • How come these only 2 are named. Where are the other names of parents who alleged who paid for their children’s college admission?

  • Not ALLEGED. Evidence, Proof, Facts which the worthless CNN network knows nothing about. Put all the cheaters in jail for no less than two (2) years.

  • Don't blame the colleges. They just wanted a full house. Oh I'm bad. Full bank accounts.

  • 6 million yikes

  • It pays to be rich.

  • They should hook up with Jussie Smollett

  • Morality is intelligent. It gets you what you want in life to do what's right

  • The parents were all entrapped. The kids should be publically caned before their high school football games to warn other kids to study hard, learn to write well and volunteer for extra credit.

  • Are we forgetting the so call elite schools who let this happen??? how long has this been going on.......

  • Hell, colleges and universities have been scamming people out of billions for worthless degrees for decades. They’re the real criminals.

  • Parents are disgusting and there young children are dumb ass fuck ! I hope they all go to prison lying cheating and scamming..Wealthy and White privilege.#Smgdh😔

  • Shame other parents as well

  • I hope the students are removed . And degrees removed.

  • Paid $500k to join the crew team? Omg 😂😂😂 that is an easy sport if your in shape lmao

  • They were not rich enough to officially bribe the colleges. You just need to be as rich as Arnold Schwarzenegger who founded the Schwarzenegger Institute at USC. That’s how you get your children into a prestigious school.

  • These rich parents will NOT serve jail time. They will get a slap on the wrist and told "Don't do that again" and, since they don't feel shame, will just go on with their lives.

  • My parents didn't bribe to get me into college. They did it the old fashion way. They kidnapped the Dean's mother and held her hostage. Even that didn't work right away. They had to cut off two of her fingers before I got my letter of acceptance.

  • What is up with the quality of this video? I can't! Come on CNN!!

  • Oh look at that Malia Obama's tennis coach is one of the indicted. What are the odds

  • The “children “ are actually adults. Trump will probably pardon them all.

  • Sickening!

  • If appears the rich complains about paying taxes, but will pay twice to three times as much of their taxes to get their children in college.

  • They should make it illegal for people in government to own nonprofits.

  • If I was the kid of the parents who spent $6.5 million in an attempt to set me up in life, I would've just asked them to give me the $6.5 million instead. If I couldn't make that last me the rest of my life then I'd have to be some sort of idiot.

  • the school officals or people taking the bribes should be punished the hardest.

  • the sad thing is this is breaking news with planes crashing and drugs all over this is what gets breaking news attention just wrong

  • college should get rid of people's names and race cause it gives others a huge disadvantage if you're not born of wealth or born of a certain race where you get extra bonus points for being either one of that

  • that's crazy!

  • Faking a one-time SAT or ACT test score is one thing (maybe they just got lucky on their guesses), but faking an athletic career?! I never had to talk about my SAT/ACT scores after I took them if I didn't want to, but hard for an athlete to hide their athletic ability, or lack thereof, for long. Really, I've been injured for four years. That's going to come out.

    • Faking athletics used to be difficult because the limited luxury athletic scholarships were given only to football players, regardless of literacy. Even the few swimming and track scholarships were diverted to big-money football. Once in college on a football scholarship, they hired people to take their tests for them and even appear in classes so the athlete could spend more time training. (Not to mention the use of fine cars and women and a luxury dorm.) Hence the athlete finished school with a degree whose diploma he could not read. And of course, female students could pay with sex, even if it was just stripping for money.

  • ...and these are the selfsame people that would tell a poor student to "pick yourself up by your bootstraps..."

  • -Black People get scholarships just for being black, in order to manufacture diversity in colleges, raising their reputation, thus raising their value. -Athletes get full rides because they bring money to the University -Hypergeniuses get into universities because they can promote them as alumni, further raising the University's value. Colleges don't let you in because of your work, they let you in if you can make them money or boost their reputation. nothing new

    • autumnskies567 they do. U know who gets screwed? Middle to lower income white people and asians. You chalk middle class white people into the same group as upper class. When its a completely different subculture.

    • White people get in with 2.5 GPAs because their dad pair or cus their great great grandpa went there back when standards were low cus only white men could attend college. Yet you fail to mention that.

    • T all organizations function this way: Profit first. Ethics are just for PR

    • That's the way it is. Imagine. People can buy their image. But, sooner or later, life has a way of being found out.

  • & there are poor students who are working their ASS off while Olivia got in to enjoy tailgates 🙄 a fucking joke. Expel them

  • It’s all about the Benjamin’s baby

  • Top colleges my ass...

  • Really the FBI should be investigating how these universities fraudulently take people's money with the promise of educating their children. The kids are usually MORE unlearned when they exit school than when they entered.

  • What about Trumps son Jared? A fat over 2 million donation to Harvard, then bam, Kushner gets into Harvard!?

  • I wonder how many others have been able to gain a degree from this scandal. Recall those degrees from those who have any part in this scandal

  • All liberals demoKKKrats... None supported Trump????

  • Your gonna have to go to community college. But mom.........

  • This is a Trump country. Why act in a moral way when our leader does not.

  • There are only two celebrities out of all these people but they’re the ones constantly getting blasted. They should be naming the other people make them famous too. Especially the ones that paid millions of dollars. Obviously whatever they do for a living they’re being overpaid probably CEOs or hedge fund owners. Start naming them make them famous please! Funny how Donald Trump Junior chimed in immediately blasting Hollywood and the liberals. Sorry but Lori Laughlin has always been a devout conservative Christian Republican. Oops. I’m sure Donald Trump Junior got into college as all the Trump kids did on their own merit. Not. Mental midgets

  • Who cares? We care about this so-called fraud yet we do nothing about giving free college to children of illegal immigrants while doing nothing for our own citizens. Amazing how the mind warps and drifts to feel good situations not in the real world. It is true what the past television commercials used to advertise, a mind is a terrible thing to waste.

  • I'm sure there are tons more cases. Sickening. What is this world coming to?

  • You throw Huffman and Loughlin's name's out there, What are the others name. And know your show Loughlin was the Aunt not the mother. How many others have done this and got away with it . Just wish they had more faith in their kids to get into a college on their own. Would like to hear more on Huffman

  • They BETTER NOT Buy their way out of this one!

  • I GUESS THESE ACTRESSES AREN'T SO "P-R-E-C--I-O-U-S" .... ANY MORE ! PU-LEEEEEEEZZZ!

  • KICK THESE BRATTS OUT OF THESE SCHOOLS !!! ALL THAT HAD SOMEONE BUMPED !!!

  • There is NOTHING surprising about this. How many politicians from all parties have done the same thing and we'll never hear about it?

  • Its amazing CNN is not trying to cover it up

    • Ann Onumiss hahaha

  • It's sad that people are so outraged with The actresses when it's the universities fault. This has been business as usual for decades and two actresses is all we are hearing about??? Come on people wake up. All of these universities knew what was going on and probably work with people like singer all the time. College became a scam years ago and unless your family is well off and you have ties to a network of individuals in the field your interested in entering, college is not worth being in debt the rest of your life.community college is all that is necessary and if your only going to get a job your wasting your time unless you know someone. Liberal arts degrees are a complete scam and waste of time. People should go to college with their mind set on educating themselves, and not expect to be given a career because they graduated. Most of the graduates I know who didn't already have their foot in the door of their chosen career are highly educated burger flippers at wack Arnold's. College has become mandatory for many careers but that is why community college is a far better alternative to a big name school and the reason so many millennial s will never own anything until their parents die. Unless you get a scholarship, you shouldn't be going to USC or any school that you will spend the rest of your life in debt because of student loans.

  • THEY'RE NOT GONNA SHIT TO THESE BITCHES!!!

  • Oh please, this is how Malia Obama got into Harvard too...

    • even is that true, does that makes this okay?

    • Ashton Henderson Yeah and the entire fucking Trump family. Your point?

  • As if America wasn't being laughed at already now the rest of the world think American kids are dumb & stupid. They can't get into schools without bribes & shit 😠😠😠😠. This annoys the fuck outta me 😩😠😩😠!!!!#lockemallup#thatPART

  • Six million???

  • Oh wow and here I thought it was just the Chicago Police Department that was accused of cheating on promotional exams like Lt Fenner, the wife of current CPD Chief of Police/Super Eddie Johnson.

  • Why is it “mind blowing” when it’s coming out of Hollywood ? This is how those POS roll ...

  • That female News Correspondent was not in a Briefing Room. It was glitching. She was just standing in front of a blue or green screen. Talk about SCAM!
