If you know the bias of the news outlet though – and it’s not usually hard to figure out after a few articles even without “help” – you can get your news from anyplace. Just a) learn to separate gossip and rumor from what’s more-or-less factual. b) put the gossipy stuff on a mental shelf off to the side and NOT your main focus just in case they have relevance later. c) continually check to see if it reinforces or goes against your biases.
