If the owner of a newspaper supported or opposed the new Constitution, they only published articles that supported their beliefs. Both sides of the story were not presented in the same newspaper </li></ul>
    • 3. THE ANTI-FEDERALISTS
    • 4. <ul><li>Anti-Federalists were the people who opposed the constitution </li></ul><ul><li>These people believed that the continental congress overstepped their authority by creating the constitution when they had been sent to simply fix the Articles of Confederation </li></ul><ul><li>These people also believed that the Federal Government created by the new Constitution had too much power and that the Articles of Confederation were better because The Articles give most of the power to the states and the people and the new Constitution gave a lot of power to the Federal Government. </li></ul><ul><li>The Anti-Federalists used “pen” names to write articles that might persuade the people to vote against the new Constitution </li></ul>
