News media article tended to focus on e-cigarette risks, rather than potential benefits
This has implications for cigarette smokers trying to quit the habit:
News media may influence public perceptions and attitudes about electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes), which may influence product use and attitudes about their regulation. The purpose of this study is to describe trends in US news coverage of e-cigarettes during a period of evolving regulation, science, and trends in the use of e-cigarettes. [....] Across years, articles more frequently mentioned e-cigarette risks (70%) than potential benefits (37.3%).

Expert reaction to World Health Organisation Q&A on e-cigarettes
It does seem that scaremongering about vaping is hurting efforts to get people off cigarettes:
“Practically all the factual statements in it are wrong. There is no evidence that vaping is ‘highly addictive’ – less than 1% of non-smokers become regular vapers.  Vaping does not lead young people to smoking – smoking among young people is at all time low.  There is no evidence that vaping increases risk of heart disease or that could have any effect at all on bystanders’ health. The US outbreak of lung injuries is due to contaminants in illegal marijuana cartridges and has nothing to do with nicotine vaping. There is clear evidence that e-cigarettes help smokers quit.

“The authors of this document should take responsibility for using blatant misinformation to prevent smokers from switching to a much less risky alternative.”
