I assume that your permissions are wrong. Check out the permissions and
ownership of /var/spool/news and all subdirectories; they should be
drwxr-sr-x  19 news     news         5120 Jul 27 04:16 /var/spool/news/

The news.debug file is generated whereever you want it to; you have to
configure this in syslog.conf. For example, the entry

news.=debug                                     /var/adm/news.debug

will log messages with the priority LOG_DEBUG (but not higher
priorities) in /var/adm/news.debug. For more elucidation, read the
manpages to syslog, especially syslog.conf(5).
