What Is Gossip Cop?
Tired of celebrity rumors that are wrong? We are, too.
Welcome to Gossip Cop, the first site of its kind to police the gossip industry. When a story appears on the Web, in print or on air, Gossip Cop will be on the scene, separating fact from fiction. Every day we’ll be posting new stories, photos, and video – and busting bad dish.
We’re going to have a lot of fun keeping under surveillance the usual suspects (yes, we’re watching you Star and Perez Hilton). Since we actually care more about being right than being outrageous, we hope to be the most accurate blog in the business. But we, too, are fallible, and we’ll be the first to acknowledge when we blow it – or to applaud others for getting a great scoop. And if you know that a story is incorrect, send us a tip – we’ll be quick to investigate.
Each post comes with a meter measuring how much we believe the rumor. Our ratings are then based on the evidence presented to us (or the lack thereof). We’ll also sometimes put the question to you in a poll.
In addition to offering commentary and criticism, we are also having fun following hundreds of celebrity Twitter feeds in “Twit Happens,” where you’ll find constantly updated Tweets from the stars themselves.
So thanks for checking us out, and we hope that you find Gossip Cop… arresting.
