<p>Following a&nbsp;<a href="…; target="_blank">story on campaign spending</a>&nbsp;ahead of the midterm elections on October 30, CBS News congressional correspondent Nancy Cordes filed a similar report on Tuesday night&rsquo;s&nbsp;<em>CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley&nbsp;</em>with the topic focusing specifically on the&nbsp;<strong>&ldquo;dark money groups&rdquo;&nbsp;</strong>that are not required to disclose their donors.</p>

<p>In setting up Cordes&rsquo;s story, anchor Scott Pelley pivoted from a report on corruption and brutal crackdowns by the authoritarian Communist regime in China to saying that&nbsp;<strong>&ldquo;[w]ell, government even in America is becoming murkier because of campaign finance laws that have become nearly a free-for-all.&rdquo;&nbsp;</strong>When the report ended, he hailed it as&nbsp;<strong>&ldquo;insight from Capitol Hill&rdquo;&nbsp;</strong>from Cordes.</p>
