A CMS is good for professional companies with no (time for or clue of) actual IT. Most people who use a CMS were perfectly happy with a simple (or less simple :-)) blogging tool instead. I still count WordPress as a blogging tool, even with its sophisticated pages system.

So if someone wants a typical news website, it'll be better to code everything again instead of just using what exists in good CMSs (Craft and Drupal come to mind)?

Agree. I've been regretting using WordPress for my personal website+blog, but I feel too lazy to move now. But, then, blogging is not the only legit use for a CMS.

 

"If someone wants a typical news website", a CMS is a good choice (unless there is a lot of IT knowledge and free time available). I wouldn't call Drupal a "good CMS", but that's on you.
