and also delete some groups in the /var/spool/news/interesting.groups

A very simple fetch wrapper to solve your problem.
(Reading local spoled news without unsubscribing)

% cat fetch_wrapper
# fetchnews wrapper
# problems: 
# we want to read some groups as archive only or to prohibit some groups

cd /var/spool/news/interesting.groups

# remove groups in "interesting.groups" that are not downloaded for the
rm -fv group.one
rm -fv group.two
rm -fv fr.comp.*
# and so on...

exec /usr/local/sbin/fetchnews "$@"

You have to call systematically this wrapper instead of 'fetchnews'
.. and modify this file according your needs.
