NightSide with Dan Rea – Rundown for March 12, 2019

A Nationwide College Bribery Plot Blows Up. Dozens of people are facing charges in the largest college admission scam ever prosecuted by the Department of Justice. According to the US Attorney for Massachusetts, the ringleader operated a college counseling service and used a fake charity as a front to accept bribes from wealthy parents to help “guarantee” their kids got into elite schools. He then fixed their SAT or ACT scores or bribed sports coaches to recruit them. Parents caught in the scheme were arrested today including Hollywood a-listers actress Felicity Huffman, the wife of oscar nominated actor Willam H. Macy and actress Lori Loughlin of the hit series "Full House". What do you think should happen to them?

Boeing, Boeing, Gone.... European authorities have banned the Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft after two fatal crashes in under five months. This means roughly two-thirds of the companies most popular jets in the world have been pulled from use since Sunday's Ethiopian Airlines crash which killed 157 people. One major economic power has yet to act: the United States. Does this shake your faith in the F.A.A.? Are you afraid to fly?

According to a new study, two of the country's most dangerous cities are in Massachusetts....Can you guess which ones?
