Trying to get/parse json(p) with jQuery

My first attempt att parsing json is frustrating. Because jQuery "fails silently" on json errors, I'm not getting anywhere.

Anyway. I want to retrieve summary and image_src for each item from this json URL - (which I have no control over, and I cannot change it's formatting)
I'm doing this from the same domain, so that I should not have any cross domain issues.
However, I get nothing.

This is my jQuery so far...
(function($) {
    var url = '';
		type: 'GET',
		url: url,
		async: false,
		jsonpCallback: 'mktmp.appendSpots',
        contentType: "application/json",
        dataType: 'jsonp',
        success: function(json) {

I've also tried with this.
  function(data) {
  .success(function() { console.log("Oh my - success"); })
  .error(function(jqXHR, textStatus, errorThrown) {
          console.log("error " + textStatus);
           console.log("errorThrown " + errorThrown);
  .complete(function() { console.log("complete"); });</script>
which gives me this in the console:
error parsererror jsonb.html:18
errorThrown SyntaxError: Unexpected token m jsonb.html:19

Please assist.
