No.  A newsreader works with NNTP protocol. Some Usenet servers offer
SSL support over port 443, but that's certainly not https. I've never
heard of an https news service before.  Unless you're talking about a
web-based newsgroups reader, such as google groups.  In the latter case
you're completely at the mercy of whatever features Google sees fit to
throw your way.
