1. US manufacturing contracts for third straight month -

WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. manufacturing output dropped for the third straight month in October as trade tensions and a slowing global economy took a toll on American factories.

The Institute for Supply Management, an association of purchasing managers, said Friday that its manufacturing index blipped up to 48.3 last month from 47.8 in September. But anything below 50 signals a contraction and manufacturing has been on a three-month losing streak.

5. Suit: US drug agency deemed firm 'kingpin' in 'drug cartel' -

NASHVILLE (AP) — The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration viewed one drug-producing company as the "kingpin within a drug cartel," according to a Tennessee lawsuit over the opioid epidemic.

A nearly 250-page amended complaint filed Monday in Circuit Court for Cumberland County said the DEA labeled Mallinckrodt a "kingpin" because it shipped opioids in high volumes to pharmacies it knew were feeding "pill mills" in Florida, which supplied Tennessee's illegal drug market.

6. AP FACT CHECK: Trump's mangled truths on Russia probe, Cohen -

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump can't seem to get his facts straight when it comes to the Russia investigation.

Facing pressure as his former advisers are caught lying by special counsel Robert Mueller, Trump is launching fresh attacks on the probe as politically biased and Mueller as hopelessly "conflicted." This runs counter to ethics experts in Trump's Justice Department who concluded that Mueller — a Republican — could fairly lead the probe into possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 election.

7. Stocks end higher as traders shrug off new China-US tariffs -

Once again, Wall Street's jitters over the escalating trade dispute between the U.S. and China proved to be short-lived.

A swift response by China, saying it will increase tariffs on $60 billion worth of U.S. goods, also didn't dampen investors' buying mood.

11. ‘The perception is Metro left money on the table’ -

Nashville businessman Jimmy Granbery is like most Metro residents who’ve been trying to figure how the “It City’s” budget hit a wall.
