This is a set of 1590 English language quotations (reported speech) extracted automatically from the news and annotated manually for the sentiment expressed towards entities (persons or organisations) mentioned inside the quotation.

For each quote, the resource consists of the text found inside the quotation markers, the speaker (the person who issued the quotation), the entity mentioned inside the quotation, as well as two manually produced sentiment judgements. The data is distributed as an Excel file with three sheets: one containing important background information (the Readme), one containing the instructions given to the annotators, and one containing the main data.
