Parse String between 2 Delimiters and add as single list items

import json

file = open('csdb.rss', mode='r')
json_string = "[" + file.read().rstrip() + "]"
data = json.loads(json_string)
print(f"The first element is {data[0]}")

print("The keys and values in the first element are:")
for k, v in data[0].items():
    print(f"{k} => {v}")

ouch my Bad, i posted to the wring Subcategory. My python version is 2.7.18 There the Syntax is different and i get the error

File "F:\GP\C64\BBS\csdbrss\grabcsdb.py", line 34
print(f"The first element is {data[0]}")
^
SyntaxError: invalid syntax
