Raheem Kassam

Warning Label

Tweet of NBC News article from Editor-in-Chief of The National Pulse garners warning label, yet a tweet of the same article from NBC does not: Raheem Kassam, editor-in-chief of online digital news outlet The National Pulse, tweeted out the link of an article from NBC News which reported on the growing rates of young people suffering from heart inflammation after receiving the COVID-19 vaccines. Above the article Kassam wrote: "Evidence grows stronger for COVID vaccine link to heart issue, CDC says." His tweet ultimately received a warning label that reads: "This Tweet is misleading. Find out why health officials consider COVID-19 vaccines safe for most people." Conversely, a tweet of the same article from NBC News itself did not receive the same warning label for containing "misleading" content.
