Trump, Clinton Make Final Pitches In Dueling Op-Eds:

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton wrote dueling op-eds in USA Today to make their cases to voters nationwide the day before Election Day.

The op-eds, which were published online Sunday night — and set for print publication Monday — largely draw upon their respective stump speeches, including outlining some key policy planks and hammering each other.
Trump, using terminology he has favored in recent weeks on the campaign trail, calls for “draining the swamp of corruption in Washington” and fixing a “rigged system in which political insiders can break the law without consequence.”
He goes on to mention Clinton as having “been the subject of an FBI criminal investigation.” Trump conspicuously leaves out the Sunday afternoon decision from FBI Director James Comey to announce that Clinton was again cleared of wrongdoing.
This political season has been... a lot. If you are suffering from election fatigue, we can help you escape into the world of make believe with a few political films. Reese Witherspoon gives a brilliant performance in <strong>"Election"</strong> as Tracy Flick, the overachiever who will do just about anything to win student body president. Anything. Matthew Broderick plays civics teacher Jim McAllister, who's determined to derail her "Pick Flick" campaign.

28 Hours: Leading The Mosul Attack, Under Fire, Then Trapped:

For more than 28 hours, CNN senior international correspondent Arwa Damon and photojournalist Brice Laine were with Iraqi special forces during their push into ISIS-held Mosul. It was a new phase of the liberation operation — switching from villages and open terrain to a dense city that a well-equipped ISIS is determined to defend.

Their convoy was leading the operation Friday when it came under attack multiple times.
Vehicles were destroyed, soldiers were hurt. Troops and journalists sought shelter in a succession of houses, calling for backup again and again.
Inside the armored vehicles, hiding with families in houses, Arwa Damon kept notes amid the heat of the battle. Here is her account, with occasional strong language. It has been lightly edited for clarity.

Common Reflects On Black America, Obama’s Legacy and The Silver Lining of Trump:

 

Amid a contentious presidential election where debates over racism, policy brutality and mass incarceration have taken center stage amid a tense political climate, rapper and actor Common has a message of hope.

In his newest album, “Black America Again,” which is out Friday, the Grammy-winning artist reflects on the pain that has plagued some African American communities over generations — from slavery, to Jim Crow, to mass incarceration, inner city violence, police brutality and poverty — and he hails the strength, resilience and successes that have uplifted and empowered his community.
