[leafnode-list] Setting fetchnews to only fetch, or only post, news.

Is it possible to set fetchnews to only fetch, or only post, news?

At the moment, my root user has this cronjob:
*\10 * * * * /usr/sbin/fetchnews -f >> /var/log/crontablog 2>&1

and what I'd love would be something like:
*\10 * * * * /usr/sbin/fetchnews -fetch >> /var/log/crontablog 2>&1
*\15 * * * * /usr/sbin/fetchnews -post >> /var/log/crontablog 2>&1
...where the -f and -p denote fetch only and post only.

This would allow news to be fetched on one schedule but posted on a
different schedule.
There doesn't seem to be provision for this in the fetchnews manpage.

Any possibility of this?
