Should I nonindex Tags?

I have heard a lot of diverse opinions on allowing and disallowing tags indexing. My website is a news website and on my coverage in the Search console, I see the number of "Excluded" URL very high because I have Nonindex tags. 

I'm just wondering which is the best practice. Should I enable Tags indexing on a news website like mine?

Unless there is a very good reason, and I mean a extremely good reason to tell Google not to index that page, it is probably a mistake to do so.

Without seeing the site and the pages you are excluding from indexing my best advice is "Stop this Practice" immediately.

Example of a good reason to  use "no index":

Put no index directives in the htaccess file on new websites you construct.  After the site is ready for publishing remove the no index restriction.

Good advice?
