you could literally buy it directly from the company for like a dollar if you didn’t have insurance coverage.

I've never seen a source given for proof of this other than Shkreli saying it offhand once.

The masses just took the sensationalist headlines and ran with them.

And the reddit masses (i.e. you) took the bullshit excuses he constantly gave and ran with that because have to be a contrarian

Are you talking about the VICE one? Because they definitely don't interview anyone but Shkreli in that one and that's the only one I'm aware of.

Do you mind composing a list of all pharmaceutical CEO reddit and Twitter handles just in case I might need something.
