1800, Apr 71863, Aug 5
a Norwegian newspaper editor and politician. In 1830 Feilberg started the first newspaper in Skien, Skiens Ugeblad. He was notably convicted of libel in 1837 and sentenced to pay 60 speciedaler; the complaint had been filed by County Governor Frederik Wilhelm Wedel Jarlsberg. Curiously, Feilberg's defender Pavels Hielm was convicted of inappropriate prodecure, having recited a poem during the final speech of the defence, and sentenced to pay 10 speciedaler. Skiens Ugeblad was liquidated in 1839, but in January 1840 he started another newspaper Bratsberg Amtstidende. In 1843 the name was changed to Bratsberg Amtstidende og Correspondent, and Herman Bagger was brought in as co-editor.
