Stop ignoring the facts.  Google and News feeds send visitors to other web pages on your website.  Your Home Page is like the Front Door on a stately mansion that is hardly ever used.  You should greet your visitors with a well designed entry page, however they are entering.  Make that template for the real way in to your website your first priority in designing.  Indeed you can forget your Home Page, it's a waste of effort.  It only slows down your visitors as they click through to where they really want to go.

Does everyone agree then?

I agree up to a point - you'd expect a searcher to express specific intent in long tail search, and arrive at a deep page. Whereas generic search terms are likely to arrive at the home page, which makes sense if they have a much more general interest. So these pages exist for rather different purposes, and SEO means that they'll likely rank highest for different types of searches.
