A common problem here is not adding the code needed at the top level of 
the tutorial module, as described earlier in the tutorial (in the 
Introduction to the Editor section).  You need to type in this at the 
end of the example1.py file:

news = ReadPythonNews(GetItemCount())

Without this Python just evaluates the top-level of the module w/o 
actually invoking anything.

Please let us know if this doesn't explain it.
