Okay, this seems to suggest the metrics used to judge pages of an information site are different. As Pjman says, time on site may be a more significant factor. Perhaps information sites hit by Panda need to be looking for pages where you'd expect people to stay a lot longer if they liked the page.
What I've found with my site (ecommerce) is that high exit rate and poor content seem to go hand in hand. I know that Panda hits sites with a high proportion of low quality content and my site was hit hardest in the sections where most of my high exit rate pages are.
