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 compiles these quotes from online news stories and sorts them into browsable groups based on who is being quoted.
If you search Google News for the exact text of a particular quote, you may find less results in our index than the number of occurrences that we're displaying on our dedicated Quotes page. That's because when calculating the number of occurrences to display for a quote, we'll group together instances of the quote that have small variations.
The views expressed in the quotes do not necessarily reflect the views of Google Inc. or its employees.
