Abstract /

Many texts written by journalists make reference to what others have said. However, this reality has not awaken the necessity of a proportional effort, neither among professionals nor journalism academics, in order to realise about its implications. This is precisely the main contribution of this article. In the first part, we will show the features that Spanish authors of handbooks in journalism writing attribute to quotes. Among these, there are two which we will emphasise for their relevance and specially because of their need of a review: the literal condition of the direct quote in written journalism and the objectivity connotation that goes with it. Then, in the second part, both issues will be analysed from the point of view of the contributions made by discourse studies.

Keywords /

Journalistic writing, journalistic discourse, direct quotation, literality, objectivity.
