A tagging system for multiple items within the same document.

I'm looking for a simple program that will allow me to tag multiple discrete text items -- specifically, citations of items that appear in the news -- that exist in the same document.

I monitor news clips for my organization. Have a gander at the (ugly, sub-optimal) format right here: http://www.ncjustice.org/?q=node/53
We monitor media coverage and I like to keep track of what type of coverage we get by geography, by subject area, by author, by person quoted, etc.
It seems to me a tagging system would be idea for this, since I don't want to get into powerful database software -- although I guess I would, if that's the best option.
My ideal would be a note-taking or word-processing software where I could select discrete elements of text and tag only that element, not the file. For example, one newspaper article could be tagged with different tags than a different article existing in the same file.
I had hoped Evernote could do this, since that's the kind of simple and elegant software I'm thinking of. But it seems like I can only tag "notes," not the information within the note.
Anyone have a suggestion for how to do this?
