NPR: TikTok Ban Anticipated This Week, But Complications Arise

A bill that could ban TikTok in the U.S. unless it divests from its China-based parent company, ByteDance, is rapidly moving through Congress. The House passed a measure giving ByteDance a year to divest; it is expected to be approved by the Senate. Lawmakers argue TikTok poses a national security risk. TikTok plans to file a lawsuit against the law, claiming a violation of the First Amendment. Previous attempts to ban TikTok have been unsuccessful. Potential buyers for TikTok are limited due to its high value. If banned, Meta and Google are expected to benefit as users may switch to their platforms. The future of TikTok remains uncertain as legal battles continue.
