GNU news.

A GNU Emacs subsystem for reading and sending Usenet news, written by Masanobu Umeda <>. You can use GNUS to browse through news groups, look at summaries of articles in a specific group, and read articles of interest. You can respond to authors or write articles or replies to all the readers of a news group.

GNUS can be configured to use the NNTP protocol to get news from a remove server or it can read it from local news spool files.
