Celebrities and the wealthy buying college admission

In the news today:

My first reaction, was "this is news?" This has been going on for decades, maybe centuries. It's about time they are cracking down on that. Wealthy parents and celebrities have been making large "donations" to prestigious universities and then their children get accepted into these prestigious schools when in fact they don't qualify based on their grades and college entrance exams.
