As far as I can tell, the Foundation does not have "policy on news across its various projects".

There have, however, been a number of blog posts and communications celebrating Wikipedia's success at providing relatively up-to-date and accurate information on current events. No discussion with either Wikipedia or Wikinews communities took place, or needed to, as this was just another aspect of Wikipedia being showcased on the Wikimedia blog. As far as I can tell, the Foundation has not allocated any extra resources to promoting Wikipedia as a news source. You are mistaking a couple of blog posts to signify Some Grand Policy Change, but it is not so.
