I rewrote my original solution, because only the Site News TrueAchievements RSS feed support the push notifications in the most RSS application. The new solution requiring a Twitter account and a smart phone. Thanks for liviaro.

You can easily unlock this achievement if you follow these steps:

0. These steps will help you to launch the TrueAchievements app faster:
*** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

1. Download Twitter application on your smart phone*
2. Sign in (or create a new Twitter account)
2. Search for TrueAchievements and start following
3. Turn on push notifications for TrueAchievements (Gear button left from Follow button)
5. Enable push notifications for Twitter in your smart phone's Settings and make sure you are turned off mute
6. Wait until somebody publish a news article (your smart phone will notify you)
Now you have 5 minutes for the last step:
7. Launch the TA app on Xbox One, go to the News page (cn_RB button) and read the latest news article.

Some useful informations:
- Xbox One Energy-saving boot up and auto sign in time: about 50 seconds
- Xbox One Instant-on boot up and auto sign in time: about 15 seconds
- TrueAchievements launch time from My Pins: about 8 seconds

*Sometimes the Windows Phone users got some bug with push notifications and must wait a few days until get the first notification. Use iOS or Android device if you can!


UPDATE Another easy way. This should help for Twitter notification bugged gamers.
During the E3 week see the Live video and wait for the big news. You can do this while watching any other gaming event, for example: Gamescom. After any game confirmed, trailer showed, etc., turn on your Xbox One and go to in your computer's web browser then wait for the news article. Reload the web page sometimes. When you see the article, launch the TA app on Xbox One, go to the News page (cn_RB button) and read the latest news article.
