The English colonial city of Boston became a hotbed for the creation of America's earliest newspapers. "Publick Occurrences Both Forreign and Domestick" published by Benjamin Harris, the New World's first newspaper, was also one of its least successful, and lasted only four days before being shut down for speaking ill of royal soldiers stationed in Boston. Several years later, a new paper, one far more interested in the political and social life of England than in the colonies, entered into circulation around Boston. This paper, "The Boston News-Letter" riled the city's colonial masters far less and ran successfully for decades.
