Who published the first American newspaper and when?
The first American newspaper would not have made much of a thump on anyone’s front porch. It was a skinny precursor to the ponderous heavyweights tossed onto today’s driveways, and was entitled the Boston News-Letter, first published as a weekly on April 24, 1704 by John Campbell, postmaster of Boston.
