• Why use quotes?
    Because quotations add color and interest to news stories by allowing readers to “hear” many voices rather than just the voice of the writer.  It provides a great perspective on an article. 
    Three types of quotes:
    • Direct—present a source’s exact words (word for word)
    • Indirect– aka paraphrasing, or restating information from a source
    • Partial– key phrases from a source’s statement quoted them directly
