It was widely accepted as fact at the time.I quoted the articles. lol
If you are looking for details about the negotiation in the articles, there isn't much of that, but that's not uncommon because the media isn't present for the negotiation and nobody from the two sides is providing a blow by blow account of the negotiation. Even when they do report something from "sources", they prove to be wrong much of the time, and we never know how much, if any, is credible.
But since you questioned whether there was a negotiation last year based on the notion the media wasn't reporting on it, it is fair to point out that every one of those articles indicates there was a negotiation last year.
And, again, you admitted yourself to reading an article where Jerry talks about the negotiation, and he thought it was going well. Are you suggesting Jerry was lying about that?
