John Almon

John Almon (17 December 1737 – 12 December 1805) was an English journalist and writer on political subjects, notable for his efforts to secure the right to publish reports on the debates in Parliament.

He was born in Liverpool and came to London, where in 1761 he was a reporter for the ''Gazetteer'', and published ''A Review of Mr. Pitt's Administration'', which was popular with the opposition. In 1770 he reprinted a letter of "Junius", for which he was put on trial and by a jury found guilty, although it is unclear what, if anything, was his punishment.

During the American Revolution, he published a monthly series of papers entitled ''The Remembrancer'' on events in America. In 1784 he established a newspaper, the ''General Advertiser'', but it was unsuccessful. He published ''Biographical, Literary, and Political Anecdotes'' in 1797, and his ''Correspondence'' with friend John Wilkes appeared posthumously. Provided by Wikipedia
