Gossip Cop is a website founded by Michael Lewittes, "a reformed gossip columnist".[1] Other staff include Shari Weiss, Andrew Shuster, Holly Nicol and Dan Abrams.[1] The site reports on the veracity of celebrity gossip, reportedly from over 200 websites, TV shows and publications.[1]

Gossip Cop covers the same material as celebrity gossip tabloids: romances, marriages, divorces, "baby bumps", and petty arguments. Occasionally, the material veers into politics (e.g., "Martin Luther King Day Lie Witness News Edition: Jimmy Kimmel Asks About MLK Endorsing Donald Trump"[2] and "George Clooney: Donald Trump Is A 'Fascist'"[3]) and pseudoscience coverage (e.g., "Kylie Jenner Posts Anti-Vaccination Photo",[4] "Charlie Sheen To Dr. Oz: I Stopped Taking My HIV Medications"[5] and "Jim Carrey Goes On Anti-Vaccination Twitter Rant, Calls California Governor 'Fascist'"[6]).
