I see (no pun intended).  So this is an altruistic service on your part? 
  Because we, on the Beowulf list, have numerous vision-impaired 
readers?  Whose tools are unable to handle links correctly?

I am sorry, this simply doesn't make any sense, and I'm not buying it.

No Eugen, you are stealing revenue from them by *reducing* the number of 
people that will hit their site, diminishing their possible advertising 
revenue.  And in the process, you are opening up the ownership and 
management of the list to potential liability in jurisdictions where the 
servers are located (the US), for copyright violations.

Never mind the bad etiquette in doing so.  You simply do not want to 
make the very limited media that follow this market, less interested in 
doing so, as it would be less profitable for them to do so.

The correct way to do this is to post a short snip from the article, and 
then the link.  Anything else amounts to stealing revenue from them, and 
reproduction of their work without consent (which is a thorny issue here 
in the US, where the servers and folks whom own the systems, are located).
