Green, Bartholomew

British American printer and journalist who published the Boston News-Letter, America's first successful newspaper, from 1704 to 1707 and again from 1711 to 1732. Refusing to take sides in the colonists' disputes with England, Green selected for publication in his paper only "those transactionsthat have no relations to any of our [American-British] quarrels." In 1727, in an effort to build the influence of his paper, he promised his readers that he would print up-to-date news rather than reports of "occurrencies of an old date."
