You can't, at least easily.  This is to some degree intentional, since the
latest draft of the news standards says very emphatically that transit
servers should not be modifying any headers except Path and perhaps Xref
and shouldn't be adding any.

For locally posted articles, you may be able to do this with the nnrpd
filtering hooks, but that only affects locally posted articles.
