Finding Quotes with Google News

Want to find the actual quote behind all the media comment and spin about what a politician, actor or sports figure has been saying recently? Last week Google announced a new Google News feature that lets you find the original quote fast, and then link directly to the news article where the quote appeared. Just search for a person's name on Google News. For example, a search for New York City Mayor "Michael Bloomberg" will produce a recent Bloomberg quotation above the search results. Clicking on Bloomberg's name under the quote box will bring up more quotations by him, each with a link to the story where the quote appeared in context. To limit results to quotations on a particular topic, just enter a term in the "Search these quotes" box on the left side of the page. It's easy to keep track of the actual words of your favorite candidate or other news makers with quotations on Google News.
