Today's Quote: "Rost has broken more scoops on the drug biz this year . . . than the WSJ, the NYT, BusinessWeek, Forbes, Fortune or any of those guys"
Usually I do some stupid quote from Cafe Pharma. But today we'll do a nice one, just because my narcissistic personality with messiah tendencies forces me to quote this from Brandweek:
"Last week, Peter Rost broke a nice scoop about how Novartis has allegedly submitted false data to the FDA to support its application for Tasigna. That application -- by amazing coincidence! -- has now been delayed while Novartis provides more information from the FDA."
"Lesson one, the scoop was broken on a blog, Peter Rost's, and not by the WSJ, the NYT, BusinessWeek, Forbes, Fortune or any of those guys."
"Arguably, Rost has broken more scoops on the drug biz this year (AZ bucket of Money scandal, Pfizer Maraviroc scandal, Pfizer India scandal, and now this one) than any single reporter at any of those publications."
