Lazy Linking

I have noticed this before, this lazy journalism that CNN displays online. They will present a hot-item article, but not link to any of the source material, instead providing more internal links to other CNN reports. How difficult would it have been to insert a pointer to the Vanity Fair article by Todd Purdum after putting a long piece on the home page in which Purdum defends said article? I mean, presumably someone actually read it, right?
