Shannon McGregor spoke with Marketplace about TikTok putting its current level of regulatory scrutiny in historical context and suggesting alternatives to a ban.

McGregor said lawmakers could go a different direction altogether. She’d like to see lawmakers “passing bills that allow independent researchers access to social media platform data so that we can answer these questions,” she said.


“How much propaganda is there on TikTok? I don’t know, but that’s an empirical question,” McGregor added.
