I would like to define a blacklist for news sources. I can not find the configuration option. Does it exist? Or can I use some kind of proxy to achieve my aim?

The best you can do (just within Google News) is reduce a news source to "rarely", but you won't be able to get rid of it altogether.

On Google News, click the Personalize button.

There, you'll find a number of sliders to change the frequency of news from certain Topics. Below that is a place to "Adjust Sources".

In the text box, type the name of the source you want to not see. Auto-complete should suggest it in short order. Choose the source, and then move the slider left as far as it will go ("Rarely").

Click Save. Depending on how much news you consume and on what topics, you should now see that news source hardly or not at all.
