    That's the genetic fallacy.

    Indeed.

    Bulverism applies to arguments, not news stories or an object. An argument is a set of predicates and a conclusion. A predicate is an assumed conclusion as True (also known as a 'fact'). If anyone disagrees with the predicate (or fact) it ceases to be a valid predicate and becomes an argument.

    Challenging a predicate is not a fallacy.
    Judging whether a 'news' source is writing mostly fiction is not a fallacy.

    Discarding an argument solely because of the source making that argument is the fallacy. The source is irrelevant. The argument stands on its own. The argument itself must be addressed, not the one making it. News articles are not arguments. Indeed, many that try to make arguments are fallacies in and of themselves.
    For once we agree.
