Lori Loughlin Scandal

The NEWSY video I will be using for my story #4 assignment will be “Lori Loughlin Pleads Not Guilty To New Bribery Charges”. “Prosecutors allege Lori Loughlin and her husband paid $500,000 to get their daughters fraudulently accepted to the University of Southern California.” Imagine not getting into the college of your dreams because someone bribed their way into that school. I feel like not matter how much money you have you should only be able to get into a university if you have the brains for it. Lori Loughlin bribed the University of Southern California to accept her daughter. Her daughter only wanted to go to the university because all of her friends got accepted and to have the “college experience”. Now if that doesn’t scream unfair to you then what does? Lori should’ve also known that this was illegal to bribe a university. The least she could’ve done is to hire a tutor to help her daughter get into the school of her dreams.

  1. Hey Alex, I’ll have to watch the video, but just from your initial take on it, I think I’m interested to see how you will rewrite this! It’s no secret, the politics with university admission as referenced in this case, has been going on for a VERY long time. Coming from Southern California myself, I can say it is especially prevalent at a school like USC, or as some of us like to call it, ‘The University of Spoiled Children’. Of course a student should earn their way in to college, but if you took away the financial backing and wealthy donors (quid-pro-pro) for all colleges and universities across the country, the Harvards, USCs, and Columbias would look VERY different. It’s not right nor fair, but sadly money drives politics, and big donors are behind many of our beloved universities!
