‘Are you really a journalist?’
‘You bet!’
‘And … tell me something’,
he ventured to ask me, ‘how do you manage to know things before they appear in the newspapers …?’

Journalist Irene Polo in ‘La fascinació del periodisme’, L’Opinió, 4 June 1933

Irene Polo (Barcelona, 1909 – Buenos Aires, 1942)

This quote appears in Catalanes del XX, Pilar Godayol (ed.), Vic, Eumo Editorial, 2006
