TikTok’s CEO Joined the Club of Big Tech CEOs Paraded Before Congress For a Public Flogging

From a story on axios.com by Zachary Basu and Stef W. Kight headlined “TikTok’s time in the barrel”:

TikTok CEO Shou Zi Chew joined the illustrious club of Big Tech CEOs paraded before Congress for a public flogging, producing a viral spectacle that has hardened lawmakers’ animus toward the Chinese-owned app.

Why it matters: The Singapore-born, Harvard-educated Chew faced a near-impossible task as he was grilled by the House Energy and Commerce Committee on TikTok’s ties to the Chinese government, data practices and harmful effects on children.
