Swifties vs. Ticketmaster

Even before the recent Taylor Swift ticket snafu, Ticketmaster and its parent company, the concert promoter Live Nation Entertainment, have been criticized for controlling 70% of the big concert ticket market, leaving fans and artists nowhere else to go. Live Nation is now being investigated by the Justice Department, and last month was called to testify before a Senate anti-trust subcommittee. Correspondent Rita Braver talks with Sen. Amy Klobuchar; with an attorney who has filed a lawsuit against Ticketmaster; and with disappointed Swifties – fans of the pop star who can't "shake it off."


Congress one step closer to spending bill deal

Congressional negotiators said they have agreed on the framework of a government funding bill. Congress has until Friday to avoid a partial government shutdown, but lawmakers are expected to pass a one-week extension to give them more time to work on the final bill. In addition to billions in funding, the bill could also include a pathway to changing the electoral vote counting process. CBS News congressional correspondent Scott MacFarlane gave an update on the negotiations and discussed new remarks from Democratic Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar about why she and her colleagues are pushing for the electoral change.
