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, resulting in his imprisonment for 14 months, and forced him to live the rest of his life on bail. 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. .
