Personal opinion.
  • Information content about true negotiations: 0.
  • Spin value: 100.

"There are differences of opinion between the parties that may be irreconcilable."

Pamela Anderson may one day win a Nobel Prize. Microsoft may decide to give their operating system away for free. I may be wrong here.
  • Actual information content: -5.
  • Spin value: priceless.
