I tend to disagree.  I think it is better to paste the news item, albeit
with a short summary / intro, and a link to the original news item.

Having just the description and the link forces me to open up a browser
to read the article.  I see the extra kilobytes that pasting the whole
article would take as the much lesser evil.
