[Tutor] json file

I need to read in a .json file and write out a file with some of the
information from this file.  I can't figure out how to read the .json file
in.  I know there is a module for this, but I don't understand how it works.

The file I am needing to read is like below (except much much larger)














I have no clue how to do this.  I was thinking something like;

import json

json.dumps([name,phone], seperators(":"))

Would something like this even remotely stand a chance of working?  If not
can someone explain the json module to me in a way that is easy to
understand?  All my past experience has been in reading ism files in a
different language - I've never read a java file before and haven't done
much python coding either.

If this statement would work, then how do I get it to give me the data for
one record at a time so I can then move it to another file?

I would really appreciate any help I could get with this.
