Webpage not appearing in Portia (usnews)

When trying to scrape content from the usnews website, I enter the page into Portia but it never loads. The page display area stays blank and 'looking up portia.scrapinghub' text at the bottom of the browser flickers.


Is the site preventing scraping? Is there a solution?


Thank you.

I get Access Denied so it seems like the website blocks Portia. You'll need to go the Scrapy route for this one.
