using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using SampleClientLibrary;

namespace Sample_DotNet_FeedReader
class Program
private static void getNewsArticles()
string API_Key = "your_api_key_here";
string baseUrl = "";

ApiContext ac = new ApiContext(API_Key, baseUrl);
//Iterate through each news item returned from your feed a print it's id, headline and publishdate on each line
foreach (newsItem ni in ac.News)
string id = "<id:" + + ">";
string headline = ni.headline;
string publishDate = "[" + ni.publishDate.ToShortDateString() + "]";

Console.WriteLine(id + " " + headline + " " + publishDate);
