He founded El Diario Curioso, Erudito, Económico y Comercial de Lima in 1790 and edited it until 1792. (Martínez Riaza, 29).

He founded and edited the Diario de Lima, 1790-1793. De Valle claims this was the first diario in South America. The first edition came out on 1 October 1790. To sustain it, Bausate formed a society called Filopolitica, whose members used Greek pseudonyms. Subscription cost 15 reales monthly. In 1792, Viceroy Gil de Taboada replaced him as “no conveniente para la tarea”. Martín Saldaña took his place. The paper ceased publication on 26 September 1793. The society and the diario only lasted 2 years despite the protection of Viceroy Gil de Taboada y Lemus. (Romero de Valle, 45, 106, 302.)
