Problem with the mechanize gem

Hi. Im new to ruby but think I have grasped the basics.
Right now Im trying to do some screen scraping using the Mechanize gem.
My problem is that my development environment (JetBrains RubyMine
4.5.4/Ruby 1.9.4/Mechanize 2.5.1) doesnt seem to find the mechanize

I try to execute this code:

require ‘rubygems’
require ‘mechanize’
agent =
page = agent.get(‘’)
news = page.link_with(:text => ‘News’).click

And I get this message:

in <top (required)>': undefined method click’ for nil:NilClass
from -e:1:in load' from -e:1:in

What could be the problem?

Make sure there is actually an anchor tag named News

Oh! You are right.
Thanks for helping a newb.
