The Political Affiliation of Early American Newspapers

Jeff Pasley of the University of Missouri, the author of the outstanding The Tyranny of the Printers: Newspaper Politics in the Early American Republic, has called our attention to some very useful resources for how to identify the political affiliations of early American newspapers.

I can’t tell you how many times I have a had a student working in the Early American Newspaper collection come to my office to make sense of the political slant of the paper they are reading.  I can now just direct them to Pasley’s post.  Thanks, Jeff.

  1. Jeff: This is such a great resource. I will use it in my early republic course. Thanks! I hope all is well. Keep fighting the good fight against the powers-that-be who have brought an end to U of Missouri Press and please say hello to John Wigger for me.
