A summary or indirect quote of some other person in an article literature review or in an introduction will be quoted with other person name or with researcher name whose article I am reading at the moment.
Suppose a researcher A is quoting B in his research article in summarising way or as an indirect quotation, would I quote the name of Researcher A or Researcher B, as I know that, for a direct quotation we would use "as cited in"? But what about summary or indirect quotation?
For example, Mitchell (2014) argues that political scandals attract repetitive media coverage, wherein one (negative) aspect of a political actor is highlighted repeatedly over a period of time. Following the leaking of scandalous information, both media and political actors promulgate the same message in an attempt to get ahead of the opposing side or other media outlets.
In this example, who should I quote?
