Google didn't do anything to usenet.  They did provide a web based
interface into usenet, and bought the dejanews archive of all
non-binary groups.

What did happen to usenet, is most ISP's stopped hosting newsgroups,
and providing usenet service to their subscribers.  They did this
partly because of the success of yahoo groups, and google groups,
and partly because of the risk of hosting any child pornography
that might be passed along on usenet.
