Links in journalism

I was flipping through some media blogs today and found a post that I thought was very interesting. Should real-time search results end?

The post stated that in the past  journalist were the ones who ended a story. Now stories on the internet can go on forever.

One link leads to another and so forth and so on. A person can get as much information as they want on any given subject and the story seems to have no end.

If a journalist can now post a link in a story, to give more information to a story, does this make the journalist lazy or allow them to focus their attention on other areas of the story?
