When I criticize your sources, I'm not criticizing the truth of real facts. I'm criticizing the objectivity of the presentation of those facts, the thoroughness of the analysis based on those facts, or the conclusions being drawn from those facts.
When you're using partisan sources, it's far more common for alleged facts to simply be wrong.
That's why you don't use them.
