--We're a newssite, and if there's news, it's news. Unless someone specific with authority from within a company or community emails us and explains us why we shouldn't post an item due to the reasons you listed, then we won't post them. I have some of those agreements already.--

Just because you CAN do something does not mean you should. If you like to have mirror operators hate you, or if you like to mislead people by offering up news before it's announced, you surely can.

But don't complain if people criticize you for not doing the "right" thing and waiting until the announcement that the release is tagged and out to all the mirrors.
