The Fallout of Operation Varsity Blues

On March 12, 2019, Operation Varsity Blues was made public by federal prosecutors, exposing how the rich and powerful influenced admissions decisions at some top American colleges. Jennifer Levitz and Melissa Korn are two Wall Street Journal journalists who followed the scandal from the start, and published the book “Unacceptable: Privilege, Deceit & the Making of the College Admissions Scandal.”

On today’s episode of Fraud in America, Levitz and Korn break down the fraud, discuss how the scandal impacted the families and universities involved, and the changes arising from the fallout.
