William Randolph Hearst (People)

"I don't know if you've made plans for college, but I think you'd fit right in at Hearst."

This is a maybe reference, one that will be pulled if Veronica ends up at Hurst, but assuming it is actually "Hearst," then it may be a reference to WRH. It's tempting to think so. The powerful and controlling newspaper magnate, who dominated the publishing industry in the first half of the twentieth century, was the model for the central character in Citizen Kane — and it's a deft connection, if true.
