Why did early American newspaper publishers often face legal difficulties? The newspapers were made of materials that were dangerous for anyone who touched them. British authorities did not want newspapers in the colonies printing controversial information. A war with Canada was close to starting, and people did not want their newspapers to support it. Journalistic practice then involved regularly printing offensive materials to shock the public.

    British passed acts that would keep them from printing the truth..a basis of the freedom of press...so it conflicted

    Spectrum's answer makes sense to me as well, especially at the time when the colonies were still under the control of the British empire.
