Reporters and pundits will soon be under the microscope when “Journalism on Journalists,” a project spearheaded by lawyer Mike Cernovich, launches.

The man who broke news on April 2 that former national security adviser Susan Rice “unmasked” associates of President Trump during his campaign now plans to unmask dishonest reporters. Mr. Cernovich, a social media star whose live streams on Periscope have garnered millions of views, discussed the venture in an exclusive interview with The Daily Caller.

“[Journalists] have this immense amount of power and they write profiles on people and the minute you turn the camera on them they act like you are some harasser or stalker,” Mr. Cernovich said for a piece published Friday.

The “Gorilla Mindset” author and InfoWars contributor said he is working out details with potential investors.

“We would investigate plagiarism. We would investigate dishonesty,” the author said while mentioning the dearth of consequences that come from shoddy or misleading reporting.

“[Bad reporters can] ruin someone’s life with disinformation. You can’t disbar unethical journalists,” Mr. Cernovich added.

A specific date for the website’s creation was not given, although Chuck Johnson of GotNews.com said he would launch a similar website by July 4.

“The American press no longer behaves properly, and they need to be held to account,” Mr. Johnson told The Daily Caller.
