On my Facebook newsfeed, I see posts made by people, and by appliactions such as Farmville, Selective Tweets, random games, etc.

Is there a way by which I can whitelist the apps from which I wish to see posts?

Currently it allows me to blacklist applications, but that doesn’t help with new games and scammy apps being added on a weekly basis. I would rather just whitelist certain known good apps and keep all the rest invisible.

No. No such feature exists because of obvious reasons. If they were to allow such feature, people would all whitelist a handful of apps and rest of the apps will never be used, hence making Facebook a bad place for app developers. So, from Facebook's point of view, this feature doesn't make sense.
