From The Jargon File (version 4.4.7, 29 Dec 2003) :

  NeWS
   /nee'wis/, /n[y]oo?is/, /n[y]ooz/, n.
  
      [acronym; the ?Network Window System?] The road not taken in window
      systems, an elegant PostScript-based environment that would almost
      certainly have won the standards war with X if it hadn't been {
      proprietary to Sun Microsystems. There is a lesson here that too many
      software vendors haven't yet heeded. Many hackers insist on the
      two-syllable pronunciations above as a way of distinguishing NeWS from
      Usenet news (the netnews software).
  

From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015) :

  netnews
  news
  
     /net'n[y]ooz/ 1. The software that makes Usenet run.
  
     2. The content of Usenet.  "I read netnews right after my
     mail most mornings."
