One way is to do a search via the Discovery search.

Enter your search terms in the quick search box, or for more advanced search options click advanced search:
From your results list look to the left of the page for Format. Select News and your results will now only include news source.
A second way to search for news sources is to use the Canadian Major Dailies database.
