Fetching top news using News API

News API is a simple HTTP REST API for searching and retrieving live news articles from all over the web. Using this, one can fetch the top stories running on any news website or can search top news on a specific topic (or keyword).

News can be retrieved based on some criteria. Say the topic (keyword) to be searched is ‘Geeksforgeeks’ or might be concerned to a specific channel. All can be done, but the API key is needed to get started.

Steps :

1. Visit https://newsapi.org/ to get your own API key.

2. Install requests package.

Below is the implementation of above idea :





# importing requests package
import requests     
def NewsFromBBC():
    # BBC news api
    # fetching data in json format
    open_bbc_page = requests.get(main_url).json()
    # getting all articles in a string article
    article = open_bbc_page["articles"]
    # empty list which will 
    # contain all trending news
    results = []
    for ar in article:
    for i in range(len(results)):
        # printing all trending news
        print(i + 1, results[i])
    #to read the news out loud for us
    from win32com.client import Dispatch
    speak = Dispatch("SAPI.Spvoice")
# Driver Code
if __name__ == '__main__':
    # function call


Output :

1 Italy to lift coronavirus travel restrictions
2 White House 'Operation Warp Speed' to look for Covid jab
3 Two Americas in the nation's capital
4 Kobe Bryant helicopter crash post-mortem released
