Booth had been upset because the church, which was new and had little money, did not pay for his mission and because he did not experience a continual stream of miracles, which he felt was a required aspect of a true church.
He was upset that Joseph Smith played with children (behavior he found not fitting for a prophet of God) and that his own missionary work did not result in a prophecy that he seems to have thought applied to him. Eventually, he began writing letters to newspapers that contained incorrect or slanted information.

Between October 13, 1831, and December 10, a former member of the Mormon Church, Ezra Booth, began printing lies about the Church in the Ohio Star Newspaper.
He printed nine letters which he claimed truthfully detailed his experience as a member of the Church. God had chastened Ezra Booth in September: "Behold, I, the Lord, was angry with him who was my servant Ezra Booth, and also my servant Isaac Morley, for they kept not the law, neither the commandment; they sought evil in their hearts, and I, the Lord, withheld my Spirit. They condemned for evil that thing in which there was no evil; nevertheless I have forgiven my servant Isaac Morley."1 Ezra Booth was bitter and disillusioned. He had joined the Church when he saw a miraculous healing and was upset that he did not experience miracles constantly. Joseph Smith and Sidney Rigdon were very successful in showing many that the things being printed by Ezra Booth were not true.

Ezra Booth and the Dangers of Gossip
Ezra Booth, a former minister, became a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, whose members are often called Mormons, in 1831, when the church was still new. He had seen Joseph Smith heal the arm of a church member, and this was his reason for joining. However, Mormons know miracles don't really convert people. The miracle must be followed up with appropriate steps to gain a true testimony, including study and prayer. However, Booth did not do this and so he had only the single miracle to bolster his thin faith. In the early days of the church, adult men, even those married, could be sent out on missions and often did so when they were quite new to the church. This is not the case today, where missionaries must be well-versed in their religion and have strong testimonies. Ezra Booth left on his mission only a few months after joining. This mission demonstrated his lack of true testimony as he faced his first necessity to sacrifice for his faith. He was angry over having to walk to his destination instead of being given transportation, even though the young church had no money for such things and neither did he. He began to feel upset that he didn't see a continual stream of miracles, not understanding that miracles are miracles precisely because they are rare. Missionary work wasn't the glamorous task he expected it to be. Ezra Booth and the Dangers of Gossip The Mormon Relief Society

Joseph Smith recorded what they preached, "setting forth the truth, vindicating the cause of our Redeemer; showing that the day of vengeance was coming upon this generation like a thief in the night; that prejudice, blindness and darkness filled the minds of many, and caused them to persecute the true Church, and reject the true light."2 Joseph Smith and Sidney Rigdon were very successful in showing many that the things being printed by Ezra Booth were not true.
