Yes, that's just a thing that needs to be solved by using a custom inline
page template for the news items.  If you (or someone else, of course)
want to have a look at this issue, I can tell you where to look.

That's a valid concern, yes.  But also, the question here is, whether we
really want to take so much care of people who blindly, thoughtlessly
click on the first link they see, and are not themselves able to navigate
through the whole page.  We indeed may have to be so careful.  What do
you suggest about how to split the text?
