Google News has one of the largest repositories of published speech in the world. These quotes are a valuable resource for understanding where people in the news stand on various issues. Much of the published reporting about people is based on the interpretation of a journalist. Direct quotes, on the other hand, are concrete units of information that describe how newsmakers represent themselves. Google News crawls these quotes and displays them when relevant for certain news story full coverage pages.
The views expressed in the quotes do not necessarily reflect the views of Google Inc. or its employees.
