I do this by running fetchnews from a shell script.  It's on
my work machine, but if you like I can post it on Monday.

Basic operation:

    rm /var/spool/news/interesting-groups/*
    for i in comp.lang.tcl comp.lang.perl ...;do
        touch /var/spool/news/interesting-groups/$i
    fetchnews $*
