I may be missing something important in your question but can't you
copy the message to anywhere you like with `B c' in summary buffer?
Or did you mean to automate the process?

If you mean you want the message to stay in the Newsgroup you can
tic it with `?' to make it dormant (Invisible when entering group)

In the group you can redisplay dormant messages with / D <thats 
forward slash uppercase D>
