Your Monday News Briefing: Les Moonves, Serena Williams, Hurricane Florence

Good morning.

Here’s what you need to know:

Leslie Moonves steps down

The longtime chief executive of the CBS Corporation quit on Sunday, just hours after The New Yorker published an article detailing accusations by six more women of sexual misconduct, which he denied.

The network said it would donate $20 million to one or more organizations that support equality for women in the workplace, to be deducted from any severance Mr. Moonves might get, depending on the results of an internal inquiry.

• Mr. Moonves is the latest high-powered entertainment figure to be ousted in the #MeToo era. He had been under intense pressure since July, when The New Yorker published a first article by Ronan Farrow in which six women accused Mr. Moonves of sexual harassment and misconduct.

Giving credit for all those new jobs

• The U.S. economy is ticking along nicely, and President Trump often boasts that the economy is “booming like never before.” But his predecessor, Barack Obama, says the “booming” started on his watch.

At stake, our reporters explain, is more than bragging rights: The expansion is central to Mr. Trump’s political standing leading up to the midterm elections in November.

How good are things? There are parallels today to the strongest period of growth and prosperity in decades.

Separately, President Trump said Ford could avoid tariffs on products made in China by producing a small car in the U.S. The automaker said it wouldn’t.

A small fish with a big enemy

• When British officials recruited the Russian intelligence officer Sergei Skripal as a spy in the mid-1990s, he was a minor prize. That’s also how the Russians saw him when they caught him. So did the Americans.

But Mr. Skripal was significant to a fellow intelligence officer at the time, of the same age and training: Vladimir Putin.

Six months ago, Mr. Skripal was found beside his daughter, Yulia, slumped on a bench in an English city, hallucinating and foaming at the mouth. The British authorities say the poisoning was carried out by Russian intelligence, although it is unclear if Mr. Putin played a role.

We break down the parallel paths of two Soviet men who were raised to wage war against the West.

California tries ammunition control

• The state already has some of the strictest gun control legislation. Now it’s pushing to limit the unfettered sale of bullets.

New regulations taking effect this year and next will ban large-capacity magazines, require sellers to have licenses and mandate traceable markings on ammunition.

Gun rights groups have vowed to fight such moves. “Raising taxes on bullets to offset the cost of gun violence is akin to putting a levy on prescription drugs to pay for the price of heroin addiction,” one critic said.

U.S. Open uproar

Novak Djokovic beat Juan Martín del Potro to take the men’s title on Sunday, but the tournament might be most remembered for the contentious finish to the women’s final on Saturday, in which Naomi Osaka beat Serena Williams.

We summarize how the match ended in chaos and accusations of sexism.

Tennis definitely has a problem with gender equality, but the conflict tarnished the sport and sportsmanship, our columnist writes.

We also look at how the victory of Ms. Osaka, daughter of a Haitian-American father and Japanese mother, is helping to challenge Japan’s notions of racial purity.

Hurricane Florence strengthens

• The National Hurricane Center warned that the tropical storm could become a Category 3 hurricane today, and that it could make landfall in North and South Carolina by the end of the week.

“The Daily”: An interview with George Papadopoulos

• The former Trump campaign adviser speaks for the first time about why he lied to the F.B.I.

Business

A single scholarly article about Amazon by a 29-year-old law student could upend decades of thinking about U.S. antitrust rules.

Starbucks opened its first cafe in Italy, where coffee competition is fierce.

Apple is expected to announce a new iPhone on Wednesday. It’s one of the headlines to watch for this week.

U.S. stocks were down on Friday. Here’s a snapshot of global markets today.

    Smarter Living

    Tips for a more fulfilling life.

    Dress up your dorm room.

    Make technology work for your family.

    Recipe of the day: Start the week with a classic savory noodle kugel.

    Over the Weekend

    A far-right party, the Sweden Democrats, is likely to act as king maker after elections on Sunday. Center-right and center-left blocs finished with the most votes, but neither has a majority in Parliament.

    A prominent breast cancer doctor in New York failed to disclose millions of dollars in payments from drug and health care companies in research articles.

    Aaron Rodgers led the Green Bay Packers to a stunning comeback win, 24-23, over the Chicago Bears. Here’s our roundup of the N.F.L.’s opening weekend.

    “The Nun” exceeded expectations and led the North American box office, taking about $53.5 million over its first three days.

    Noteworthy

    The Trump administration held secret meetings with military officers from Venezuela over the past year to discuss their plans to overthrow President Nicolás Maduro, a Times report disclosed.

    The revelations brought stiff condemnation from the Venezuelan government.

    C.I.A. broadens drone operations

    The agency is preparing strikes in Africa, targeting Islamist insurgents in Libya from a remote base in Niger. The move reboots a program that was curbed under the Obama administration because of a backlash over civilian deaths.

    Our video helps to explain what’s behind the decision.

    “A place that will breed vengeful feelings”

    In China, ethnic Uighurs in Xinjiang Province are being sent to camps as part of a campaign to remove Muslim worship. Our reporter visited the region to investigate the country’s most sweeping internment program since the Mao era.

    Quotation of the day

    “She completely had the right message about women’s inequality, but it wasn’t the right time to bring it up.”

    Martina Navratilova, who won 18 Grand Slam singles titles, on Serena Williams’s outburst in the U.S. Open final.

    The Times, in other words

    Here’s an image of today’s front page, and links to our Opinion content and crossword puzzles.

    What we’re reading

    Taffy Brodesser-Akner, a feature writer for Arts and The Times Magazine, recommends an excerpt in The Cut from Sarah Weinman’s new book on the case that inspired the novel “Lolita” by Vladimir Nabokov: “It is so well researched and well written, and such a jarring reminder of how little has changed for girls.”

    Back Story

    The first “Star Wars” movie bursts onto the scene. Queen Elizabeth II celebrates 25 years on the throne. Apple, founded a year earlier, becomes an incorporated company. It is 1977.

    And, on this day that same year, France used a tool popularized during the French Revolution — the guillotine — to execute a Tunisian man, Hamida Djandoubi, who had been convicted of murder.

    Such executions were introduced in France in the late 1780s, by King Louis XVI, and were thought to provide quicker, more humane deaths. (Paradoxically, he was guillotined himself.)

    Nearly 200 years later, France was one of few Western European countries with capital punishment. Polls showed that 61 percent of the population still supported the guillotine, and Michel Sardou, one of France’s most popular singers, released the song “Je Suis Pour” (“I Am in Favor”) in 1976 supporting the death penalty.

    However, a small but growing number of citizens were fiercely opposed to the practice — including the politician François Mitterrand.

    After he was elected president in 1981, he pressed lawmakers to officially retire the guillotine, making Mr. Djandoubi’s execution France’s last.
