Is there any idiom or popular phrase that says:

" be careful of when making a judgement while listening to a news,gossip,rumor...etc from someone"

Because what they say can be biased, probably not true, and it's up to you to make the correct decision.

    To "take with a pinch of salt" implies scepticism. – djna Sep 9 '16 at 6:59

    not "a news", "a gossip". No article there. Just "news", "gossip". – Tᴚoɯɐuo Sep 9 '16 at 9:31

The most common phrase to describe this is

Don't believe everything that you hear.

You can substitute "read" or "see on TV" if you wish.

It's actually a quote from the bible, and is a popular subject for Facebook instant-wisdom images like these

You may use the expression:

Don't jump to conclusions/leap to conclusions:

Fig. to judge or decide something without having all the facts; to reach unwarranted conclusions. (See also rush to conclusions.) Now don't jump to conclusions. Wait until you hear what I have to say. Please find out all the facts so you won't leap to conclusions.
