Here's what we're following today.

Some of the richest and most famous people in the world — including Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, Bill Gates, former President Barack Obama and Joe Biden — were targeted by hackers on Twitter in an apparent Bitcoin scam. Twitter says it is investigating Wednesday’s "coordinated social engineering attack" on employees who had access to sensitive internal administrative systems.

With less than four months to go before Election Day, President Trump on Wednesday replaced his campaign manager, Brad Parscale. The move comes amid the president's slipping polling numbers and after a rally in Tulsa last month that Parscale claimed sparked a million requests for tickets; only 6,000 people showed up.

Georgia Republican Gov. Brian Kemp issued an order Wednesday night that bans cities and counties throughout the state from requiring face masks. Kemp's order comes after Atlanta Mayor Keisha Bottom issued an executive order requiring masks or face coverings in the city on July 8.

When the meatpacking industry in the U.S. started seeing a rise in COVID-19 cases, local officials in New Bedford, Mass., worried that their city was next. But the city mayor, Jon Mitchell, took action, issuing emergency orders that safety experts say should be a model for workplaces across the U.S. And what about companies that don't follow the orders? New Bedford is taking names and issuing fines — up to $300 per day.  

American Airlines says it may have to eliminate nearly 25,000 jobs in October due to sharp drops in travel during the pandemic. Last week, United Airlines warned 36,000 of its employees that their jobs might be gone this fall.

The White House announced that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will no longer manage coronavirus data, such as hospitalizations, availability of intensive care beds and personal protective equipment. Hospitals must now report that information to the Department of Health and Human Services, which oversees the CDC.

NPR's Rachel Martin spoke to Mary L. Trump, President Trump's niece and author of a new expose that describes what she calls her uncle's "pathologies." Mary Trump says her grandfather and family patriarch, Fred Trump, rewarded ruthlessness and dismissed any interests outside of the family real estate business. She says her uncle's family life contributed to what she now views as an unfitness to be president. (Listen here or read the story)

It’s a paradox: big Wall Street investment banks are going gangbusters and enjoying strong profits even as the greater economy is tanking across the country. As NPR’s Jim Zarroli reports, the reason has everything to do with how the stock market works. (Listen here or read the story)

Starting in 1965, summer after summer, America's cities burned —  with civil unrest in more than 150 cities across the country. In 1967, Lyndon Johnson appointed a commission to diagnose the root causes of the problem and come up with solutions. What the so-called "Kerner Commission" returned with shocked many Americans. This week, the Throughline podcast considers how the report continues to shape American life. Click here to listen.
