via The View

Sara Haines, co-host of “The View,” expressed concern about TikTok’s influence, noting that it’s creating a radical movement among young people, with some users shockingly praising Osama bin Laden’s “Letter to America.”

She criticized the platform for spreading misinformation and emphasized the lack of accountability compared to traditional media.

“When we were talking about TikTok and the users that are getting — 76% of people 18 to 24 are on TikTok. The amount of those people who admit that’s their news source has doubled since 2020,” Haines said. (Trending: Jury Reaches Verdict In Paul Pelosi Hammer Case)

“It is not a coincidence we woke up this morning to a letter from Osama bin Laden going viral on TikTok, as he was lauded.”

“This is a jihadist, hateful, despicable human being being lauded, and if that’s your only source of news, which a lot of young people are not checking and balancing,” she pressed.

“There’s a lot of checks and balances to mainstream media, there are regulations, there are a lot of faces and heads and identified people behind the organizations that are fired, that are let go, that have to give corrections, that have to do a thousand things.”

“We have a whole generation of people consuming TikTok as if it is the law and it is creating a radical, young movement right now that is scary.”

Co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin also criticized TikTok, highlighting its Chinese ownership and its potential to divide and target vulnerable young people.

She expressed her belief that it targets “the most vulnerable among us, which is the youngest generation.”

“In one study, they found that within two and a half minutes of getting on to TikTok, you can be served up ads promoting suicide, promoting eating disorders.”

“Those are the self-harm, mental health side effects of TikTok, but it’s also seen a massive uptick in anti-American sentiment,” she pressed.

The discussion arose after a TikTok influencer promoted bin Laden’s letter, leading to reactions that portrayed the terrorist mastermind in a positive light.
