Yes, this is now possible. The NewsView control supports both filtering by Categories or Tags. Please check the attached screenshot.
As for the Tags filtering, you should use the FilterExpression property like this:
Tag.Name = "myTag"
This will instruct the NewsView control to show only articles tagged with myTag
Let me know if you have any other questions.
